Periplus, the UNCW Honors College newsletter, tied for first place in an annual competition sponsored by the National Collegiate Honors Council. The UNCW Honors Media Board editors traveled to the National Collegiate Honors Council conference in New Orleans to receive the award and to present a round-table discussion on best practices for managing an honors media board.
Periplus contains articles written by students and professors about offered courses, leadership, alumni, donors, special events and other topics relating to the Honors College. Student leaders manage the media board. Bill Atwill, associate director of the UNCW Honors College and associate professor of English, is the faculty advisor.
In addition to Periplus, the media board publishes two issues of a creative magazine called Second Story Journal per year. This publication allows students to submit art, photography and creative and scholarly writing.
