WE ARE AAF + UNI
Advertising is the greatest art form of the 20th century.
AAF-UNI is dedicated to providing our members with professional opportunities and experiences that incite a passion for advertising and the advertising industry!
We bring in speakers from across the industry and from a variety of disciplines. Our speakers and events give you numerous opportunities to network with future and present advertising professionals.
AAF-UNI provides the unique opportunity to work with real clients in the National Student Advertising Competition. NSAC enables college students to develop a national campaign for a well known brand – then develop a pitch team to present our ideas!
There’s a place for everyone in AAF. We are made up of a wide variety of majors – including Marketing, Public Relations, IDS, English/Writing, Graphic Design, Digital Media and Graphic Technology. There are many opportunities for you to apply your skills and talents to the advertising world!
Advertising is full of great thinkers. This is a powerful industry and does a lot more than we take credit for.
Mostly professional, always driven. Our leadership team strives to inspire students to go on to successful, rewarding careers in advertising across the country.
