Homecoming on the Hill is always a festive time, and 2014 was no exception for WKU Student Publications.
Our 64th annual Student Publications Breakfast on Saturday morning was packed this year, with alumni and friends traveling from all across the country to visit and reminisce about their days working on the College Heights Herald and the Talisman. Every seat was claimed at the breakfast. LA Times photographer and Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Loomis was honored with the Herald Award for his contributions to journalism; and J. Michael Moore of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School won the Talisman Award for his contributions to communications.
The night before, about 75 people — alumni, friends and students — showed up for our open house at the Adams-Whitaker Student Publications Center. People came and went throughout the evening, with some catching the annual Homecoming Parade before returning to Adams-Whitaker to warm up with old and new friends.
The centerpiece of our festivities this year was the launch of “The Experience: A Campaign for WKU Student Publications.” The Experience encourages annual investment to help ensure the priceless experience our students get from working on the Talisman and the Herald remains strong long into the future.
