The Niagara Index to revisit special publication

by Press Release

Joshua Maloni was managing editor of The Niagara Index the first and only time that Niagara University's student newspaper published a full-color magazine highlighting the achievements of NU undergrads. A decade later, he's ready to do it again, this time as the publication's advisor.

The Index editorial staff was reviewing past issues and a conversation ensued about the original magazine, Maloni said. The editors thought the concept was a great way to shine a spotlight on Niagara University's most notable students. They jumped at the chance to create a tenth anniversary edition, which would commend NU's best and brightest in 2011.

Throughout the month of March, the Niagara University community (students, faculty and administrators) may nominate students who are making the most of their college experience for inclusion in 20 to 1: The

20 Most Intriguing Students on Campus. Those chosen will be interviewed and invited to participate in a professional photo shoot for the publication, which will hit newsstands on April 30, the tenth anniversary of the inaugural list.

Submissions should be between 100 and 250 words, and include details on what makes the nominee stand out (i.e. leadership, academic achievement, propensity to give unto others, special talents, ability to overcome contrary circumstances).

Entries may be e-mailed to or dropped off in The Niagara Index mailbox, which is located just outside of the Office of Campus Activities in the Gallagher Center. Deadline for entries is March 31.

At the beginning of April, The Index editorial staff will review the nominations and select the 20 most deserving students (a minimum of one student per college will be selected).

Inquiries can be directed to The Index editorial staff or to Maloni, who by day works as the entertainment and Web editor for Niagara Frontier Publications, at

The Niagara Index, the nation's third oldest college newspaper, has informed and enlightened members of the Niagara University community since 1870.
