As the school year wraps, Lakeland College has another accolade to put in the trophy cabinet.
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education or CASE recognized the school’s Excel Alumni magazine with a 2022 Circle of Excellence Award. The college received the bronze medal in the magazine category for alumni and general interest in two-year institutions.
The Excel is published twice yearly, featuring alumni profiles, class notes, events, campus news and donor relations activities. Its name is a nod to the college’s motto Ever To Excel, which was adopted in 1928.
In granting the award, the CASE team said, “Excel magazine presents Lakeland College as a fun, vibrant, and vital community. The publication often presents very institutional content in engaging, digestible ways for readers such as in the “Alumni Benefits” spread. Good story selection, compelling photography and, as noted, a great sense of warmth and human connection.”
Current and past editions of the Excel are available online.
This year CASE received more than 4,500 entries from 636 institutions in nearly 30 countries.
