LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Bucknell University Conservatives Club magazine, The Counterweight, has received the "Paper of the Year Award" from the Collegiate Network.
The Counterweight, which received the award for superior design and content, was recognized for working with the University on issues of diversity and free speech.
"The staff of The Counterweight is extremely honored to win this award; receiving the recognition and help of the Collegiate Network keeps us motivated in our struggle to preserve the ideals of conservatism and libertarianism," said Will Moyer, Bucknell senior and editor-in-chief of The Counterweight.
According to Moyer, The Counterweight also was praised for its continuous exposure of excessive administrative spending. Throughout this past year, Moyer said, The Counterweight has worked to curb administrative waste, fight classroom bias, reform campus dining, and promote intellectual diversity.
The Collegiate Network is a subsidiary of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, consisting of 103 conservative student papers from the nation's top colleges and universities, including every Ivy League school.
Founded in 2001, the Bucknell University Conservatives Club was featured on the cover of the May 25, 2003, New York Times magazine and has received coverage from other broadcast and print media including MTV, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, The Washington Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and NPR.
