An up and coming club at Cabrini is the Advertising and Promotions Club. The club had once existed before but flopped, and with the encouragement of Dr.Dawn Francis an assistant communication professor, the club had managed to start up again.
The mission of the Advertising and Promotions club is to “provide a community for creative thinkers who are interested in marketing, advertising, public relations and social media to learn about strategic communications network with one another and professionals in the field and collaborate on special projects.”
Valerie Ruiz a junior majoring in communication, is the president of the Advertising and Promotions Club.
The club has lots of upcoming projects planned. “We want to totally recreate the communications wing, and go out with the old, and in with the new.” The club members plan to get signs out so everyone knows where everything is in the communication department, and make it more attractive for future communication students.
One project the club is taking on is possibly putting LOQation on televisions around campus , and to place pictures that students shot out on the hallways so that others have more of an understanding and students get recognized for the work that they do.
At the club meetings members spend their time talking about networking when they are not working on projects. Everything from resume tips, to tips on how to give a presentation and preparing for interviews are topics discussed.
The club is trying to establish its presence on campus, ” We want to be a place where others can come if they want help in establishing themselves,” Ruiz said “We are advertisers and promoters, it is what we do so we hope other clubs can find our usefulness and use us.”
Anyone is welcome to join the club and the door is always open. Meetings take place twice a month on Tuesdays at 3:15 in Founders room 279.
