Albertus Magnus College Wins CASE Award for Second Year in a Row

Earns Public Relations Honors for Celebration of Renovated Hubert Campus Center

New Haven, Conn., January 19, 2021 –  For the second year in a row,  Albertus Magnus College is honored to be recognized with a CASE District 1 Excellence Award.  This year, the College was named a Bronze Winner in the Communications/Multimedia Campaign Category for showcasing the celebration and ribbon cutting for the newly renovated Hubert Campus Center.  The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) is a global non-profit, dedicated to those who champion education to transform lives and society.

More than 70 judges from 45 institutions and organizations chose this entry from a competitive field for its impactful media relations and stirring photos that led to outstanding news coverage.  A special congratulations goes out to Zaida Velazco and Gabriel Perez of VP Creative Agency for their photojournalism expertise that helped capture the magic of the January 2020 event.

“It seems like a lifetime ago when we could gather on a gloriously sunny and unseasonably warm day in January to celebrate the opening of the Hubert Campus Center.  So much has changed because of the pandemic.  But looking back only gives us more hope and determination to not only hold these types of events again someday soon, but inspires us to once again capture the joy on people’s faces and share that through powerful storytelling,” said Albertus Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing, Andrea Kovacs.

Albertus’s Communications and Marketing team continues to attract accolades.  In November 2020, the College earned a Mercury Award from the Public Relations Society of America Greater Connecticut Chapter (PRSA-CT) for its Alumni Success Stories.
