November 14, 2012

SF STATE NEWS -- SF State’s student newspaper, the Golden Gate Xpress, has been named one of the best in the nation by the Associated Collegiate Press.

The Xpress received the prestigious Pacemaker award at a student newspaper convention October 31 to November 4 in Chicago, the seventh time the newspaper has been given the Press’ highest honor. The publication’s web version was also named a finalist for the Online Pacemaker award.

In addition to the Pacemaker, the Xpress also received a Pinnacle Award from the College Media Association, which co-sponsored the convention with Associated College Press, for an audio slideshow produced by student Elijah Nouvelage about The Lusty Lady, a unionized, worker-owned San Francisco strip club.
