Constitutionalist Scholars to Speak

Two renowned political scientists—Rogers Smith of the University of Pennsylvania and Michael Zuckert of the University of Notre Dame—will visit California State University, Chico in April.

On Thursday, April 10, at 7 pm in Ayres 120, Smith and Zuckert will address the topic “Living Up To the Declaration of Independence: Liberalism and the American Experience.” A reception will follow. On Friday, April 11, at 3 pm in Ayres 106, they will speak at a forum titled “The American Political Tradition and America in the World Today.” Both events are free and open to the public.

Smith is the author of more than 70 articles in academic journals and of four books, including Civic Ideals: Conflicting Visions of Citizenship in United States History. Civic Ideals received five “best book” awards and was a finalist for the 1998 Pulitzer Prize in history.

Zuckert has published three books within the last five years, including Natural Rights and the New Republicanism. Zuckert is currently working on Completing the Constitution: The Post-Civil War Amendments.

The Orion Wins Third Straight National Award

The Orion has again been honored with one of the nation’s top college newspaper awards. CSU, Chico’s student weekly was named Newspaper of the Year on March 9 by the Associated Collegiate Press.

The award marked the third straight year and the fifth time in six years that The Orion has won first place in the “four-year college weekly” category at ACP’s National College Newspaper Convention held March 6–9 in Seattle.
The general excellence award was based on a single issue published since Sept. 2002.

The Orion, a student-managed laboratory newspaper of the Department of Journalism, has won a string of prestigious awards. It has been named the nation’s best college weekly in recent years by both the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Newspaper Association. The California Newspaper Publishers Association has selected The Orion as the state’s No. 1 university paper for seven of the last eight years.
