Welcome back Gators! This week marks the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year at the University of Florida, along with the second year anniversary of the Ad Society blog.

I am Sandra Salvatierra, this year’s Blog Director. As a second-year advertising major and English minor, my love for the industry has only grown through taking courses and participating in student organizations such as Ad Society. I love my major so much that I decided to use my free time to blog about it; crazy, right? 

Within this blog, you can find all things advertising, from the internal workings of Ad Society, event recaps, and industry updates. This blog is meant to be a source for not only Ad Society members, but to anyone interested in the advertising/marketing world, especially college students or those just embarking on their career paths.

This year, the goal of this blog is to not only educate our readers, but to entertain them (expect gifs galore). We want your input as to what you want us to cover, whether it be questions about upcoming Ad Society trips, interviews with our executive board about their passions, or just Mad Men commentary. Additionally, if you are interested in contributing to the Ad Society blog even more than just messaging us about potential posts, come to our Membership Rally next Thursday, August 29th and learn more about the Assistant Blog Director position.
