Equinox: Shared Memories and New Awards

The Communication, Journalism, and Philosophy departments created an historic timeline of the nearly 100 years of student newspapers at Keene State as a College Centennial project. Professors Julio Delsesto and Rose Kundanis presented this timeline on November 6 in the Media Arts Center Atrium, where _Equinox _staff past and present shared memories of their experiences working on the paper.

At the event Marianne Salcetti (Journalism) invited participants to view the collection of awards the student newspaper has collected, and announced that the _Equinox _had just been named first runner up for “College Paper of the Year” by the New England Society of Newspaper Editors in their first-ever College Newspaper of the Year Awards competition.

Additionally, Corey Smith, managing editor at the Equinox, has been selected to participate in the Campus Coverage Project. This competition, sponsored by Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), the Education Writers Association, and the Student Press Law Center, is designed to share investigative reporting skills that college and university students can use when covering campus issues. Seventy-five students from around the country were selected to receive full scholarships to participate in the project.

Smith, a journalism major in his junior year, entered Keene State as part of the College’s first Honors Program group. He will attend a workshop at Arizona State University in Phoenix in January, where sessions will focus on specific campus-coverage issues and overall reporting techniques and skills. Additional training opportunities will be provided throughout the year.
