Event to help groups advertise

The Student Leader Fellowship Program (SLFP) is holding a Skill Builder! on Wednesday, March 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. to help students improve their advertising skills.

Cindy Paavola, NMU’s director of communications and marketing and Kira Jankowski, a junior double majoring in graphic design and public relations, will be leading the workshop “Posters that Pop” in the Back Room of the University Center.

Jankowski said that the purpose of this workshop is to help students develop more effective marketing skills and to let students know how useful posters can be for advertising. This workshop will also help students and community members discover resources on campus for laminating and printing supplies. This free event is open to students.
