Student-run publications at City College offer opportunities for growth, skill development, and amplification of diverse voices on campus.
The San Francisco Press Club held its 45th Annual Greater Bay Journalism Awards on December 8th, honoring both professional and student journalists. The Guardsman was named Best College Newspaper while the college magazine, Etc. Magazine, won Best College Magazine and several other awards in the College Media category. The event was well attended with over 400 journalism awards presented and was the first public event since the pandemic.
Last year City College’s journalism department pulled in over 80 awards between the Spring and Fall semesters. Given the track record, therefore, these 17 decorations are likely only the first of many to be awarded to City College journalists in 2022.
The incoming chancellor’s contract was approved by the Board of Trustees on Sept. 23rd, and in the three weeks since he has not given an interview or issued a statement regarding his hiring, or his plans for the chancellorship.
Writers and editors from The Guardsman talk about their experience at the 2021 Journalism Association of Community Colleges (JACC) state convention.
The awards ceremony was capped with The Guardsman earning the top prize of the night, the Pacesetter, that recognizes the best of the best at the convention
