The University’s student-run campus newspaper, The Beacon, won the national Apple Award for “Best Newspaper” for colleges or universities with fewer than 5,000 students at the annual College Media Association convention in New York City, according to Nancy Copic, student activities. Other winners were The Miami Hurricane of the University of Miami (10,000+ students) and The Eagle of American University (5000-10,000 students).
Copic attended the convention, along with six selected Beacon staffers: Katie Dunn, Malika Andrews, David DiLoreto, Rebekah Markillie, Parker Shoaff, and Jacob Fuhrer. The Beacon has won four other national awards since September, including a Third Place Pinnacle Award for Best Weekly College Newspaper, and three Gold Circle Awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.
