SJMC alum to discuss starting her own ad agency

Join us in Ad Principles to hear from Sarah Reinwald Guldalian, JO’03, the owner/CEO of St. Louis ad agency Rhino Hyde Productions. Sarah will be talking with the class on Thursday, April 24, at 11 a.m. in Mer. 102.  All are welcome!

MCL major featured

The Master of Communication Leadership was featured in a story on the Drake Community Engagement and Service-Learning website. The story discussed the applied research and theory class’ project for the YMCA Supportive Housing organization in Des Moines.

According to the article, written by MCL student Jill Brimeyer, “This permanent, supportive housing campus offers 140 efficiency units to single adults who meet income and lifestyle criteria, filling a unique, much-needed niche in the affordable housing continuum. While the organization was at capacity and serving its residents well, it was lacking the public awareness and funding needed to propel its mission and fuel future expansion.”

The MCL students tackled the problem and offered suggested remedies.

Seniors, pick up your coffee mug!

Seniors can get their SJMC coffee mug from Shari Tenney in Mer. 118.
