Pulse Magazine Wins National Honor!

Central’s student-run lifestyle magazine, Pulse Magazine, won a fourth place “Best in Show” award in the Feature Magazine category on Sunday at the Associated Collegiate Press National College Journalism Convention in Los Angeles.

Students submitted the latest issue of Pulse, available online here, to the contest. This is the second year in a row Pulse has taken home this honor.

“I am really excited about getting the ACP award and I know the rest of our staff is, too,” said Pulse Editor-in-Chief Brielle Rutledge.

Pulse’s Art Director, Mackenzie Loete, added, “All of the long days and late nights we've put into each issue of Pulse really pay off when we go up against big colleges across the U.S. and place fourth."

The 64-page issue was only the second official printed edition of the magazine, which comes out twice per quarter and was previously available solely online.

It featured a cover story on the lengths aspiring dancers will go to in order to perfect their craft, as well as articles on local wineries and one student’s experience attending the One Young World summit in Thailand.

Some 20 students traveled to the convention, which ran Feb. 18-21, to attend professional training sessions and workshops on journalism and design. Those students will come back and apply that learning to their work for The Observer student newspaper and Pulse Magazine.

The full list of ACP award winners can be found here.
