  • Blogs category — a gold award for the 1780 blog — consistent with the university’s year-over-year recognition by the Educational Advertising awards.
  • Special Events category — a silver award for the Transylvania Pioneers Women’s Basketball National Championship. 
  • Recruitment – Series category — a silver award for the university’s Pioneer Types yield postcards.
  • TV/Video Advertising/PSA category — a bronze award for Pursue Bold Paths 2023.
