Alumni Bulletin wins award
The Kenyon College Alumni Bulletin has won a national silver medal from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), the international organization for professionals in alumni relations, communications, and development. The annual CASE awards are the most prestigious honors for alumni magazines in the country. Kenyon was one of four winners in the category of college and university general-interest magazines with circulations of less than 30,000. The other institutions whose magazines won awards in this category were the University of Portland in Oregon (gold), Occidental College (silver), and Carleton College (bronze). The category attracted forty-seven entries, with judges basing their decisions on the magazines' content, writing, editing, layout, design, and print quality.
