Our Mission

As a student, sometimes you just want someone to tell you what to do. You want to know the secrets everyone else seems to know: how to succeed, what clubs to join, and what classes you should take. Our mission is to create a space made BY students, FOR students. We want to provide students in advertising with a platform to learn, contribute, and become part of the industry as well as the community. Our hope is to help you find your way and to make things a little easier by putting resources all in the same place.
