Liberty University students honored at marketing competition
When searching for Christian colleges and universities, prospective students may want to see what types of opportunities are available to those enrolled at these schools.
Anybody who has an interest in pursuing a degree through Liberty University’s Department of Communication Studies need look no further than the 2012 John Caples International Awards, which were held in New York City on March 22. According to a press release, students from the Christian university were awarded first and second place for the Student Campaign of the Year during the marketing competition.
Out of more than 700 entries, Liberty alumna Ashley Kelly and senior Chelsea Dawson were awarded the first place prize of $5,000 and paid internships from Alloy Media + Marketing. The pair was recognized for the marketing campaign they designed for General Motors (GM).
“We never thought we would get this far, and we never would have if we didn’t apply ourselves,” said Kelly. “It was amazing meeting the GM representatives and hearing their thoughts about our campaign.”
Prospective students who wish to follow in Kelly and Dawson’s footsteps should know that Liberty offers several communications programs, including a bachelor’s degree in advertising and public relations, as well as a master’s in communication studies, according to the school’s website.
