Contributed by Michael Serino

The Ithacan has once again achieved national recognition as one of the top student newspapers in the country.

The Associated College Press has named the paper a finalist for its 2005 Pacemaker Award -- an honor widely regarded as "the Pulitzer Prize of college journalism." Winners will be announced during the 84th annual National College Media Convention October 27-30 in Kansas City. The paper has won the award twice in the past and has been a finalist three times in the last four years.
