The news section is tasked with delivering timely and factual reports on current events and issues that concern Artlets.

The special reports section goes deep into the heart of Faculty-wide, University-wide, and national issues to uncover the truth through comprehensive stories.

The features section showcases outstanding members of the Artlet community—whether students, alumni, or professors—through compelling personality profiles.

The lifestyle section dedicates itself to enhancing Artlets’ artistic sensibilities by introducing them to the vast world of the arts, music, and even food.

Literary

Photography Department

Art & Multimedia Department

The literary section ignites Artlets’ intellectual senses through incisive reviews of plays and films as well as thought-provoking prose and poetry.

More than just capturing snippets of important events, the Photography department tells stories through its own medium. In cooperation with the Photography Department, videographers create audio-visual elements to supplement The Flame’s stories.

Tasked with overseeing the publication’s overall aesthetic, the Art department creates layouts, animation, and artwork to accompany the Flame’s articles, video content, and literary pieces.

In 1964, with the merger of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters and the College of Liberal Arts, the need for a student publication that will serve as a mouthpiece for students arose, coupled with the restlessness of bearing the new identity of “Artlettes.”

Rey Datu, then the Arts and Letters Student Council Vice President, became the first Editor in Chief of the campus newspaper that would later be known as the Flame.
