Collegian Claims Several SPJ Awards

The Society of Professional Journalists announced its Region 1 Mark of Excellence Award winners in New York this month and  the Daily Collegian sure cleaned up.

Collegian reporters achieved more than 21 individual awards and two big overall awards in the competition, which received more than 3600 entries. Collegian members swept the first, second, and third place slots in the Feature Photography category.

More than ten reporters locked up first place in several categories, including Online Sports Reporting, Sports Writing, Breaking News Photography, Feature Writing, Online News Reporting, and Feature Photography.

The Daily Collegian also received second best All-Around Daily Student Newspaper and second place in Best Affiliated Website. Those who finished in first place will move on to the National competition, the winners of which will be announced in early May.

So congrats to the Collegian for a job well done!

(Editor’s Note: The article fails to mention the successes of several other Penn State media outlets. The Centre County Report received awards for Best All-Around Television Newscast [2nd], Television General News Reporting [1st], Television Sports Photography [1st] and Television Sports Reporting [1st]. ComRadio was also awarded for Radio In-depth Reporting [2nd and 3rd] and Radio Sports Reporting [1st]. We apologize for the omission.)

2005 Senior Class Gift…Why The Wait?

The 2005 Senior Class Gift, which for the past year has looked more like a construction zone than a piece of fine art, is nearly complete.

The installation– formally known as the Student Life Promenade— consists of five cement pillars lining a sidewalk on the side of the HUB facing College Ave. The pillars depict various images of student life at Penn State from over the past 150 years of the University’s existence.

The entire project is set to be completed by Friday, April 23 for Blue & White weekend but the nagging question still remains…what took so long?
