Winter Break Competition Help

Starting next Tuesday, January 3 from 1-3 pm, there will be a competition entry workshop in room 310 at 410 Bush. The workshops will continue each Tuesday at the same time until the semester starts. First come, first served. Come for as long as you like – you don’t have to stay the full two hours. You’ll have direct access to all the department directors and full-time advertising instructors. If you’re serious about winning a competition this year, you need to work harder and smarter than everyone else. This is your chance to do both.
