The status of the Ithacan as one of the best college newspapers in the country was reaffirmed last weekend when the paper was awarded the 2008 Pacemaker and Online Pacemaker awards -- widely regarded as the Pulitzer Prize of collegiate journalism -- by the Associated College Press. The 2008 award is for work published during the 2007–8 academic year, during which Erica R. Hendry served as editor in chief.
This past weekend at the Collegiate Broadcasters Inc. National Student Production competition, ICTV was recognized as the overall winner in three categories.
Journalist and author Tom Wolfe will serve as the 2008-9 Park Distinguished Visitor.
Wolfe is recognized around the world as the preeminent social commentator of our time. Called the father of "new journalism," Wolfe is the author of 12 books, including the national best sellers The Right Stuff, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Radical Chic and Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers and The Bonfire of the Vanities.
