Director of Production, Andrew Jones does homework for his class in between classes in the Gaylord computer lab. He is excited to be starting the student run advertising agency this summer.

Students Excited About Starting AD/PR Agency

Advertising and Public Relations students have completed their applications of the student run advertising agency, and are excited about getting started.

The ad agency idea was started by Professor Tarpenning at the beginning of last semester. This idea came from several advertising professionals saying that they hire advertising graduates who worked in a student run advertising agency because they get better real life experiences there than internships.

"I am really excited to get started. We have had over 70 applications filled out for the first year alone. The students that start in the summer will go through a leadership course and teach the students that come in the fall," Faculty Advisor to the advertising agency Tarpenning said.

Students who have applied for the advertising and public relations agency should expect phone calls and interviews to proceed through the next month.
