CSM’s student-produced Honors Project newsletter, Labyrinth, has again won a top prize at the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) conference. Labyrinth took second place publications for four-year universities and community colleges across the country.
Honors Project faculty coordinator David Laderman, along with chief student editors Mondana Bathai and Gabriela Topete Eng Goon, flew to Atlanta earlier this month to attend the conference, participate in a panel on “winning honors newsletters,” and receive the award at a ceremony.
In 2014, Labyrinth won first place in the NCHC contest. Since then, the newsletter has transformed into a slicker, more sophisticated academic journal, featuring student writings and artwork from the CSM community at large. Labyrinth is published each semester by the Writers Project, the student club of the Honors Project.
According to Laderman, “Even though Labyrinth is not a newsletter per se, it probably won because it’s so impressive as a student journal, and does serve, like a newsletter, to promote the creative and academic works of students. We in the Honors Project are extremely proud of the publication and this recognition—especially because the journal really is 100% produced by the students in the club and learning community. They are simply amazing.”
With generous support from the ASLT division and Student Life, Labyrinth is published each semester by the Writers Project, the student club of the Honors Project.
