Student Organizations

Advertising Club
Doing real work for real clients, the RMU Advertising Club could be described as an ad agency disguised as a club. The Advertising Club defines engaged learning by providing account and creative services for both RMU organizations and community clients. Open to all majors, club meetings consist of creative brainstorming and work sessions. From conception to execution, the RMU Advertising Club develops quality campaigns for clients that need them.
