Website places at conference

The North Wind editors attended the 2012 National College Media Conference Thursday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 4 at the Sheraton in Chicago, Ill. and took third place for best website at the enrollment two level.

Over 200 Universities and 1,200 advisers and editors from all over the country entered their publications in the competition.

The conference brought in aspiring journalists, photographers, designers and broadcasters to the five-day event.

Scholars and employees of major publications attended the conference as well. Some of these included The Chicago Tribune, Associated Press, MLB writers and The Daily Collegian from Penn State, who were one of the first publications to uncover the Sandusky case.
