This award for Best College Campus Website recognized baylorlariat.com for its stellar multimedia coverage over the past year.

The Associated Collegiate Press also awarded an Online Pacemaker to The Lariat’s website, as well as a Yearbook Pacemaker for the Baylor Roundup’s 2019 book, “Light the Way.” The Pacemaker is ACP’s highest honor.

Rounding out the department’s big awards this semester are College Broadcasters Inc. and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. CBI recognized The Lariat as having the Best Social Media Presence in the nation. The Lariat and Focus magazine are both Crown Award finalists.
