MCTC’s student newspaper City College News took third place in the Associate Collegiate Press Best of Show for two-year, 4-16 page publications at the National College Media Convention Oct. 26-30 in Orlando, FL.

“The networking and knowledge gained from this convention was priceless,” said Editor in Chief Aaron DuBois.

Congratulations to all of the staff and reporters at City College News!

The National College Media Convention is the largest gathering of college journalists and advisers in the world. Associated Collegiate Press and College Media Advisers partner to prepare nearly 400 practical and professional learning sessions, from high-profile keynotes to specific, problem-solving breakouts, hands-on workshops and discussion groups. College Broadcasters, Inc., arranges a slate of broadcast-oriented speakers. Other convention activities include an exhibit hall with vendors who sell to student media, ACP’s Best of Show contest, receptions, awards convocations, critiques and a newspaper job fair.

With typical attendance of more than 2,300 delegates, the annual fall gathering has become the place to seek solutions to the most challenging publishing and broadcasting problems, share success stories, see what’s new in the media marketplace, discover trends and network with students and advisers from the United States, Canada and often other countries.

Culinary Arts Students Show off their Skills at the Epicurean Experience

Posted on: September 13th, 2011 by insidemctc No Comments

MCTC students in the Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management programs got some real-world, hands-on experience this week.

A dozen enthusiastic students prepared, served and talked about food at the U.S. Foodservice Minnesota Epicurean Experience trade show at the Saint Paul RiverCentre on Monday, Sept. 12.

U.S. Foodservice asked MCTC students to be a part of this large annual event. As a result, the students represented the foodservice distributor by showcasing new lines of pizzas and barbequed meats.

The students enjoyed the opportunity to network with a diverse group of regional chefs and other food industry professionals, showcase their skills, sample some amazing food and learn a little bit more about the food industry.
