It’s not every day you get an opportunity to tour a corporate in-house marketing department! On February 14th, we’ll have that opportunity. Meijer’s team will be taking us through their Marketing team area as well as their video and photo production spaces, so you can get an idea of what it’s like to work in a corporate team.

The tour is free to Ad Club members, or $10 for non-members and there are limited spots. For more info and to sign up, follow the link below!

Creative agency, HAVEN is looking for student volunteers to staff their annual Super Bowl party! There will be food and drinks provided, students will be asked to assist with the setup and tear down (minimal tasks in this portion) and assistance with voting tallies throughout the duration of the game. They are looking for 10 students, and there will be media present, so volunteers should be comfortable with the chance of being interviewed or on camera.

For more information, or to volunteer, shoot us a DM!
