ROCK HILL, S.C. - Once again Campus Activities Magazine readers have selected Winthrop's DiGiorgio Student Union Program Board as one of the nation's best school program boards.
Joining DSU in the competition for 2011 Best Campus Activities Program are program boards at four universities across the nation: the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, Central Michigan University, the State University of New York-Cobleskill and Methodist University. DSU's board made the best program ballot (placing in the top five) for the annual Campus Activities Magazine Readers' Choice Awards from 1995-2008. DSU also won Campus Program of the Year in 1995, 2002 and 2004.
Boyd Jones, DSU's director and university programs director, said the nomination is "a great nod to the hard work of our students on the DSU Program Board."
"I am very proud of them and all they’ve done. They are a wonderful group of students to advise," said Jones. He's particularly proud of the honor, he added, because of all the changes this year's program board has faced: a new name, new building and spaces, a new logo and website, a new assistant director (Mike Rapay) and new responsibilities, including the addition of movie screenings and late-night programming.
All these changes, though, haven't prevented the board members from doing what they do best.
"They rock," Jones said.
Voting for the awards continues through Feb. 15. For more information about the magazine's readers choice awards, visit Campus Activities Magazine online.
