BARE wins at the ASUC Publication Awards

Doreen Bloch, the founder of BARE Magazine, speaks about funding issues  that publications are worried about.

Wednesday evening, myself, and a few of the BARE staffers attended the 2nd Annual ASUC Publication’s Banquet. The banquet, held in honor of Berkeley’s 70+ student produced publications, recognized stand-out student groups. Among the publications in attendance were the Blue and Gold Yearbook, The Berkeley Science Review, and of course BARE. 

Although we did not manage to secure the Best Publication of the Year Award, we walked away with the Most Improved Award. That speaks volumes, signaling that BARE has come a long way since its’ inception a little over two years ago. 

We can only continue to move forward. We will be at the forefront of all things fashion and student life in an effort to progress and propel forward. One thing is for sure, BARE is standing strong and its’ members will work towards one day winning the Best Publication of the Year Award!
