Setting the pace.

For the fourth time in five years, the University News at St. Louis University received a Pacemaker Award from the Associated Collegiate Press and College Media Advisers. The award recognizes the newspaper as one of the top papers across the country in the four-year, non-daily category.

The staff received the 2001 Pacemaker Award at the ACP/CMA convention held in New Orleans on Oct. 25-28. Faculty adviser Avis Meyer, editor-in-chief Diana Umali, managing editor Nick Weber and seven senior editors led the 2000-2001 staff of more than 40 writers, photographers, editors and sales representatives.

The University News is a weekly publication with a circulation of 7,000. The newspaper is distributed throughout Saint Louis University's campus, as well as in four surrounding areas off campus. The organization offers practical experience in writing, reporting, editing, advertising, business and management. Founded in 1921, the University News is a true student organization, entirely self-funded, and managed and produced by students.

Pacemaker Awards are considered by most university journalists to be the top prize in college journalism. The weekend also recognized and awarded four-year daily newspapers, two-year college newspapers, yearbooks, magazines and online news sites. This was the 80th annual ACP/CMA National College Media Convention. More than 2,500 student journalists and advisers attended, representing colleges and universities throughout the United States.
