  The Ithacan has been named a Gold Medalist for 2015 in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s annual college publication critique.

Each year the CSPA evaluates member papers on overall content, news, depth reporting, features, opinion/editorial, sports, arts/entertainment, editing/headline writing, and design/graphics based on more than 150 specific criteria. This year the paper scored 918 on the critique’s 1,000-point scale. The CSPA consistently ranks The Ithacan as a Gold Medalist, its highest category. The publication was evaluated in the critique’s “hybrid” category, which is defined as “print publications that provide live coverage via website between print editions.” 

Among the judge’s comments, “Congratulations on a wonderful hybrid entry! Both products are worthy of praise. You seem to be doing so many things well, and I hope your college community realizes what good journalism you are doing. Your coverage of the apparent lack of confidence in your president is comprehensive and commendable.” 

  The Ithacan has been named a national finalist for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s 2016 Crown Award in the competition’s “hybrid” category. The hybrid category is defined as “print publications that provide live coverage via website between print editions” and is the most competitive category in the competition.

 The winners, who receive either a Gold or Silver Crown, will be announced at the Spring National College Media Convention in New York City, March 12–15.

 The Ithacan was awarded Gold Crowns in 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012.

 Founded in 1925, the CSPA is owned by Columbia University and operated as a program affiliated with its Graduate School of Journalism. The Crown Awards, first presented in 1982, are the organization’s highest recognition of overall excellence. The Crown Award, along with the Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker Award, is one of the top collegiate press awards in the country.

Ithaca College's wrestling and women's indoor track and field teams captured championships during another busy weekend of Bomber athletics.
