Café is golden — again

The Carleton Café alumni Web site has earned another award for excellence — this time a gold medal in the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education’s prestigious Prix D’Excellence awards program.

There were over two dozen entries in the “Best Department or Program Site on the World Wide Web” category, but the Café was the “clear winner,” said David Estok, chair of the category judging committee. “The judges liked the interactivity, they liked the design, and they liked the creative approach Carleton had taken. It was a unanimous choice.”

The Café, an innovative online community where Carleton graduates can find old friends, post messages and catch up on alumni news online, also earned a gold medal this year from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.

Representatives of the Advancement team will accept the award at the CCAE national conference in London, Ontario, on June 16.
