Commuter Heads to 'Collegiate Day' at OSU
Members of the Commuter staff will be at Oregon State University on Friday learning more about journalism and celebrating their accomplishments at the annual awards program put on by the Oregon Newspapers Foundation.
"Collegiate Day" this year will feature seminars on newspaper design, internships, online journalism, open records/meeting laws, and sports writing. It runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at OSU.
At the awards program the Commuter is seeking to improve upon last year, when it earned Second Place in General Excellence among the state's non-daily college newspapers.
The staff already has been notified that it has won awards in these categories: best online site, best graphic, best editorial, best spot news photo, best sports photo. On Friday afternoon the staff will learn whether those are First, Second or Third-place awards.
Good luck Commuters! You've done a great job this year!
