University magazine honored as best in the West
December 6, 2007 -- SF State Magazine received its fifth Award of Excellence from the Council of Advancement and Support of Education’s (CASE) District VII. The Bronze Medal for Outstanding Communications was announced Dec. 4 during the district's annual conference in Las Vegas.
Through its district awards program, CASE, one of the largest nonprofit education associations, honors best practices in alumni relations, communications, fundraising, marketing and other areas.
