Ad Society is ready to start off the 2019-20 school year with our Membership Rally this Thursday, but are you ready? Let’s go over what you should bring to our first meeting:

Notebook & Pen

Throughout our Membership Rally, the Ad Society team will be going over the slew of activities you can join as a member. Ways to get involved include Elevate, our very own student-run advertising agency, and Rookie/Guru, a program that partners new members with mentors within Ad Society. We will mention lots of due dates to get applications in, along with other details you will want to jot down to remember later.

A Friend

Face it: meeting new people can be scary. Coming with a friend can give you the extra boost of confidence you need to put yourself out there. Bring your new roommate, an old high school acquaintance, or someone you sat next to in your Introduction to Media & Communications class. The more the merrier!

Contacts App

Coming alone? Get ready to have your phone flooding with new phone numbers from people you meet on Thursday. Advertising students are oftentimes naturally social, so expect lots of smiles and conversation starters.

An Appetite

Need a little after-dinner snack? No worries: we are hosting an after-meeting social at the AHA! Lab with refreshments and more mingling. Find us after the Membership Rally on the third floor of Weimer Hall.

An Open Mind 

Ad Society meetings are a safe place for students, regardless of what major you are pursuing. If you are just exploring what career paths are available to you, Ad Society is the perfect place to gain professional skills in a welcoming environment. We love what we do, and we want you to join in on the fun!


We are super excited to see what this year holds and hope you will join us. See you on Thursday at 6:15 p.m. in Gannett Auditorium (Weimer 1064)!
