Georgia College’s student newspaper, The Colonnade, earned sixth best college newspaper at this year’s Southeast Journalism Conference in Troy, Ala.
The Colonnade competed with 32 other schools including Auburn University, Mississippi State University, University of Tennessee and Samford University.
“The staff, writers and photographers have put in 110 percent to make this year's paper the best it can be, and I think it shows,” said editor in chief Matt Chambers who guides the weekly newspaper’s staff of around 30 students.
Two Georgia College students earned individual awards. Junior mass communication major and special sections editor Aubrie Sofala placed fourth in Arts & Entertainment for her profile on the student director of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and her coverage of “Dog Sees God.”
