Periplus, the UNCW Honors College newsletter, tied for first place in the Student-Produced Newsletter category in the annual competition sponsored by the National Collegiate Honors Council, the recognized leader in Honors education worldwide. In November, 2013, The Media Board editors traveled to the National Collegiate Honors Council annual conference in New Orleans to receive the award and to present a round-table discussion on best practices for managing an Honors media board.
The Honors College has an active and engaged Honors Student Media Board. Under the editorial supervision of Dr. Bill Atwill, the student-driven media team develops the Honors newsletter (Periplus), information for our broadcast systems in the Fisher Student Center "Scholars Lounge," Randall Library, and Honors office, as well as featured information slides and videos for the SeaHawk Channel.
Our newsletter, Periplus, documents news and information from the Honors College past and present.
The board also develops and prints Second Story Journal, the arts and literature publication for Honors.
Second Story and Periplus are also available online, hosted on the reader site ISSUU. Follow this link to see issues of Second Story and Periplus.
