WUTK has been chosen as one of the Top 25 College Radio Stations in America again this year by MTV-U for its annual Woodie Awards. Last year, WUTK was the runner-up in the national voting to The University of Miami. We hope that all students, staff, and faculty take time to vote for WUTK again this year. You can vote as often as you want.  WUTK would love to win this award, especially since we are celebrating 30 years on the air this year.
