Student Groups

Ad Club

Open to all majors, Ad Club is an accredited club of the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Ad Club is a student-run organization that advertises for local businesses within the community. Members find businesses that lack advertising, and provide full-service ads (creation, presentation and placement). Money raised from the advertising work goes to the club to support events for its members, such as job shadowing trips.

You don't need to be an advertising major to be in Ad Club! We look for students with experience in business, public relations, event planning, economics, management, accounting, graphic design and creativity. One-time ($65) dues are required to join Ad Club within the first four weeks of joining, with at least 80% meeting attendance. You'll receive a membership card, membership into the national branch of AdClub and professional experience to add to your resume.
