Today kicks off the start of Project Lit.  Tabling will ensue from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays, November 12th and November 19th. Additional collection times include: Thursdays, November 14th and November 21st. (Times upon request) Project Lit's prime purpose is to create awareness of the continuous legal disposal of hazardous wastes. Consumers should be properly trained on how to disassemble and where to recycle lighter parts. All collected lighters will be cleaned and transformed into an art installation for the college. Excess recyclables will be collected, weighed, and sold as recyclable materials to an environmental disposal company. Proceeds of the project will be donated to Dr. Mutiti's Kabwe project. Project Lit's main focus is protecting the environment from hazardous waste; while embodying waste as art. Please feel free to contact Project Organizer, Lillian Jandrlich, for any additional information, concerns, or pick-up request.

For the first time in its 94-year history, the Colonnade was recognized on the national stage by the Associated Collegiate Press on Nov. 2.  

Senior Mass Communication major Keegan Casteel's sports game story was one of only 10 recognized on the national stage, competing against all 4-year institutions in the association. 

Her article, "Soccer falls short in PBC championship to PKs" covered the Nov. 7, 2018 loss to Columbus State University in the final round of penalty kicks. 

The Colonnade advisor, Pate McMichael, and three staff members opened the conference with a presentation alongside the Student Press Law Center covering the importance of using documents for factual reporting. 

Senior Writer Miya Banks shared how she used an open records request with the university to discover how many students on campus are unvaccinated. Her reporting revealed that a large majority claimed religious beliefs as a reason to exempt the vaccination requirement at GC.

Managing Editor Lindsay Stevens discussed using open records requests to cover hazing investigations on campus. Stevens covered the hazing accusations of three greek organizations last year and the process that went into the investigations by the school. 

Editor-in-Chief Amy Lynn McDonald explained how she was able to file open records with the Georgia State Patrol, where she received both a preliminary and final report on the bicycle crash last year.

Congrats to the Colonnade on their accomplishments!
