A quartet of silver medals

Not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Particularly when it’s news that SCU publications were honored there this December by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) at its regional awards ceremony.

The awards recognized outstanding achievement in alumni and donor publications, student recruitment, and internal communications: Silver medals went to Santa Clara Magazine for overall excellence in the past academic year; the 2005–06 President’s Report; SCU’s undergraduate recruitment video; and fyi, the online newsletter for faculty and staff.

Jim Purcell, vice president for university relations, noted that the awards were significant for a number of reasons—not least of which, he said, is that “Santa Clara University is a great story, one that has many ‘chapters’ worth telling.”

With its four awards, SCU was one of the most lauded universities in CASE’s District VII, which includes more than 100 colleges and universities from Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah. —LT
