Our students inspire us with their disciplined work ethic and passion for advertising and public relations. They never cease to go above and beyond. They are drawn to the opportunity of exploring the seemingly endless avenues of advertising and public relations taught at the Stan Richards School of Advertising & Public Relations. Students are guided by faculty, advisors, and our amazing alumni network to find their niche allowing them to become budding experts in the industry area of their choice.
Our students are actively involved in campus organizations in order to gain new experiences, build their personal and professional networks and complement their career paths.
