The California College Media Association supports college news media in California with the intent to foster cooperation among colleges in the region in order to give a unified voice in addressing problems and issues that college news media face, to provide support and communications to advisers and editors, to nurture college journalists, and to share resources.
Earlier this week the Society of Professional Journalists announced the Tempest has placed in the ‘Best All-Around Non-Daily Student Newspaper-2 Year/Community College’ category of their Mark of Excellence student newspaper contest.
