The Yale Daily News has long styled itself the “Oldest College Daily.” Now it can add another superlative. This spring, the Society of Professional Journalists named the News the nation’s “best all-around daily student newspaper” in its 2018 Mark of Excellence Awards. The News won first prize for breaking-news reporting (large school division) for its coverage of a rape trial. And the Yale Daily News Magazine was one of three national finalists for best student magazine.
