Dollars & Sense Magazine Wins Gold Crown Award in New Online Format
Baruch College’s student magazine, Dollars & Sense, in its new online form, has brought the College’s journalism department the highest award in college media -- the Gold Crown Award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) -- in its first year of publication. In addition, the online magazine has won the Silver Crown Award in the magazine category.
Founded in 1979 by Professor Roslyn Bernstein, who remains its publisher, the magazine was previously printed each spring and distributed to students, faculty, corporate leaders and media professionals in the New York region. In its print form, the magazine had been recognized by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, the Society of Professional Journalists, and the American Scholastic Press Association.
In 2009, Dollars & Sense switched to an online format to capitalize on multimedia technology and to publish students’ work more frequently.
This recognition by the CSPA demonstrates that the transition to an online format has been successful and helps to position Baruch’s journalism department at the cutting edge of undergraduate education in the field.
Journalism professors Andrea Gabor, Josh Mills, Craig Stone as well as professor Bernstein all served as advisors to the students involved with Dollars & Sense, helping to shape the digital transformation of the magazine.
