BARUCH COLLEGE, NEW YORK, NY (4/1/03)—Dollars & Sense, the annual business review published by Baruch College undergraduate and graduate journalism students, has won the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Silver Crown Award for the second consecutive year. The award is part of the international student press organization’s annual ceremony to select and reward the best publications among its 1,749 members. The magazine was awarded the Gold Crown—the highest prize granted by the CSPA—in 2001.

"Dollars & Sense’s continued excellence raises the profile of Baruch College, and we’re particularly delighted that it has come from a forum where undergraduate and graduate students work together,” said Professor Roslyn Bernstein, founder of the college’s journalism programs and the publisher of the 24-year old magazine. “Congratulations to all the students on Dollars & Sense, and to the faculty advisors last year, Professors Andrea Gabor and Geanne Rosenberg, and adjunct professor Lisa Babb.”

The magazine’s win was particularly significant this year, as only three other magazines were awarded “crowns” by the CSPA.

The Silver Crown award underscores the college’s efforts to attract high-caliber journalists, editors and publishers to teach both graduate and undergraduate students. The program recently added former BusinessWeek assistant managing editor Sarah Bartlett to its faculty, where she joined notable journalism professors like Joshua Mills, the program director and former New York Times editor, and Village Voice contributor Alisa Solomon.
