For the second time in three consecutive years, CSM’s Honors Project publication, Labyrinth, has won first place in a national honors newsletter competition. The National Collegiate Honors Council awarded Labyrinth first place among all public and private universities and colleges in the nation. The awards were announced at NCHC’s annual national conference in Boston in November 2018.

Labyrinth has been recognized three years in a row: first place in 2016, second place in 2017, and first place again in 2018. This accomplishment is even more impressive given the scope of the competition – honors programs from the nation’s top universities.

In its award letter to the CSM Honors Project, the National Collegiate Honors Council wrote, “We are so thankful for the work you have done to raise the standard of honors education, and are so proud to celebrate your accomplishments!”

Labyrinth is planned, created, edited and produced by students from CSM’s Honors Project, under the guidance of faculty advisors David Laderman and Jill Kolongowski. Two issues are published each academic year, each featuring stories, essays, poetry, visual art, illustration, photography and academic papers.

Labyrinth is viewable online at collegeofsanmateo.edu/honorsproject.
