Alvin Chang and Adam Playford, undergraduates in NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and editors at NYU’s student paper, Washington Square News, have been named to the inaugural UWIRE 100, which honors the nation’s top collegiate journalists.

Chang, a Washington Square News columnist and its associate editor, and Playford, the paper’s editor-in-chief, were selected from more than 500 nominations submitted by students and educators at 132 schools. A UWIRE panel evaluated each candidate based on demonstrated excellence in a field of collegiate journalism.
