5. What are hometown news releases? What do students need to do?

Hometown news releases are those regarding particular students’ accomplishments. These are sent to the newspapers that the student has selected as his/her “hometown” newspapers. The College issues hometown news releases regarding particular student honors, including graduation, dean’s list, faculty’s honorable mention, notable achievement and certain other academic and co-curricular honors.

Releases are typically only sent for students who have listed newspapers on their student information forms. These forms are distributed at the beginning of each academic year by the College’s registrar’s office. Students who have questions about whether they have selected hometown newspapers may contact Traci Crockett in the public relations office.

The public relations office distributes hometown releases as efficiently as possible, but cannot guarantee if or when they may be printed by newspapers. With questions about particular releases, students may contact Traci Crockett in the public relations office.
