A Berry College student has been named a finalist for a national media award.

The EPPY Awards recognize the best media-affiliated websites in 30 categories. The awards are presented by Editor & Publisher after undergoing an in-depth judging experience by a prestigious panel of judges and the Editor & Publisher team.

Senior Ashley Foreman, of Alpharetta, Ga. was a finalist in the category of the Best College/University News or Event Feature. Foreman studied abroad in Florence, Italy this past summer with the Berry College Department of Communication. While there, she completed a news piece on Florence’s Le Murate. She wrote how Le Murate,  once a convent and then a prison, is now a multi-purpose space for socialization, artistic events and residential living.

“Study abroad was an incredible experience that allowed me to broaden my horizons, practice communication in a new environment and learn more about myself and what I am capable of,” she said. “While completing this story was not the easiest task, it certainly was a fun challenge and ended up being very rewarding.”
