Closing the Spring 2018 semester, a wonderful surprise appeared as the centerpiece of our Forest. A large wooden teeter-totter gave students and faculty alike a childhood joy away from the stresses of tests, papers, and grading. However, it was suddenly nowhere to be seen. It became lost to our presence but not to our hearts.
The Syrinx student newspaper won a $1500 Campus Equipment Grant from the California Press Foundation. The staff will use the grant to purchase a DSLR camera for their newsroom.
Syrinx editors applied for the grant in April 2018 with the endorsement of the Editor of the Fresno Bee, Joe Kieta. Kieta visited FPU on Monday on behalf of the California Press Foundation to present the $1500 check to Editor-in-Chief Leo Loera.
