Greenlee Majors, Alumni Recognized for Standout Work


Student organizations and students from each of Greenlee’s three majors — advertising, journalism and mass communication, and public relations — earned distinctions as some of the best, locally and nationally, in the last year.

The Iowa State Daily earned the Society of Professional Journalists’ distinction as the Best All-Around Student Newspaper in the nation, as well seven awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s Collegiate Gold Circle Awards. Advertising students made it to the semi-finals of the national Effie brand challenges and won top awards from the Des Moines chapter of the American Advertising Federation.

Greenlee School alumni also drew attention for their outstanding work, including making Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for Marketing and Advertising and winning an Emmy for Best News Anchor.
