Comments from the Judges

“I really liked the variety of the stories … China recruiting; student mailboxes; merit aid; hijab wearing at a military academy.  All pieces well reported and written.”

“This journalist is really adept at writing around issues at the intersection of technology and its impact on higher education students and their systems. Her writing is easily digestible and clean, which is a gift in an area that is challenging to sometimes cut through the jargon and pomp we see in academia.”
