Cal State San Bernardino was well represented among the winners of the regional portion of a national advertising competition recently with 27 CSUSB students who collectively took home 40 prestigious ADDY Awards.
The 40 CSUSB student awards represents nearly one-third of the total given during the 2015 American Advertising Awards-Inland Empire Gala, attended by more than 300 at the Mission Inn in Riverside on March 13.
“We have truly amazing talent here at CSUSB,” said Jacob Poore, manager of the CSUSB Coyote Advertising program. Poore, together with Andrew Oakes, a CSUSB assistant professor of art, helped students to enter the competition.
On the morning of December 19th, 2014, more than 500 dollars of supplies and toys were dropped off with the CSUSB Children’s Center; the result of a creative holiday fundraiser. A total of eight campus units contributed including: the College of Arts and Letters; Department of Marketing; Academic Technologies and Innovation; Alumni Office; Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority; College of Education Reading & Literacy Program; Coyote Radio and Coyote Advertising.
The Information Technology Services Division started the Fall 2014 quarter strong with it’s first ever “Free Downloads and Pizza Party”. Students showed up to receive a free slice of pizza and download the latest version of Microsoft Office 365.
The Coyote Advertising Program played a key role in both planning the event and marketing it to the CSUSB student population.
