Boston University College of Communication students took home 13 of the 16 student awards given out at the 58th Annual Hatch Awards for Creative Excellence at the House of Blues on October 25th.

COM students snagged five gold (most ever won by any college entrant), three silver, three bronze and two merits. Twenty different students, both graduate and undergraduate, from portfolio classes taught by Pegeen Ryan, Doug Gould and Edward Boches were among the winners.

Winning work included short films, videos, experiential, installations, social media,  transit and posters.

“This was another big night for COM,” said Pegeen Ryan, a professor of advertising who joined the more than 20 COM students attending the event.  “Our students and their work left a lasting impression on the entire community.”

In addition to BU COM student winners, BU COM alumnae garnered gold, silver and bronze awards for work they created at agencies including Hill, Holiday, MullenLowe, Arnold. Allen & Gerritsen, MMB, Digitas LLB, and Connelly and Partners.
