Award Recipients for the 12th Annual Quaddies

Each year, The Quadrangle hosts an in-house awards ceremony to recognize some of our best writing and some of our greatest contributors to our paper. Articles are nominated by members of the paper and voted on by members as well. While our awards ceremony was held virtually this year, we were still able to celebrate!
