NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Society of Professional Journalists is pleased to honor a select group of campus chapters for their outstanding work. Among 12 chapters being recognized, Ohio University was named the National Campus Chapter of the Year.

Ohio University’s chapter was chosen because of its efforts to well-conceive and organize nearly 24 events paired with multiple other media-oriented campus groups, effectively use its social media outlets, creatively utilize Skype for “virtual visits” and efficiently serve its student body with professional-grade programming.

SPJ honored the Ohio University campus chapter at the Student Union event at Excellence in Journalism 2014, Sept. 5 in Nashville, Tenn.
