If the questions/answers below do not meet your needs, please contact Trish Watson at email@example.com or 573.341.4996.
1. Why should my business/organization be on the flash drive?
The flash drive will be given to over 1200 freshman and transfer students-potential new customers for your business or members of your organization. The flash drive also provides marketing possibilities that were not available with ordinary flyers-including hyperlinks to company web sites, and videos.
2. Whom can I contact for more information?
For more information, contact Trish Watson in New Student Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 573.341.4996.
3. It’s easier for me to print flyers; does my ad have to be an electronic copy?
While we prefer the ease of the electronic version of your advertisement, you can submit a hard copy of a single-sided ad to scan onto the flash drive. The ad can be brought by or mailed to our office at 106 Centennial Hall. We will not be editing any ads, so hyperlinks will not be available for ads that are scanned in.
4. How long can I make my advertisement?
Your advertisement can be one full page in Word or Publisher format (portrait orientation); since we are no longer concerned about saving paper or space in goody bags, we are not limiting advertisements to 1/2 page or less, as requested in prior years. If you are submitting your advertisement as a hard copy, please limit it to a single-sided 8½ x 11 sheet of paper.
5. What can I put on the page?
Missouri S&T encourages you to give a description of your business, geographic location, relation to the student body, and any specials or discounts you may offer to Missouri S&T students. However, Missouri S&T New Student Programs asks your business please keep in mind the target population; the incoming students are generally between the ages of 17-19. Therefore, we ask that you refrain from any alcohol, drug, or sexual content.
6. What if my company puts coupons on the page, can’t they print out more than one copy?
The coupons can be printed multiple times. To prevent this, New Student Programs suggests providing students with coupons that have deadlines and are only valid with a Missouri S&T ID.
7. Is this a fundraiser with a different name?
Missouri S&T is providing area businesses with the opportunity to advertise to incoming students. The advertising fee helps New Student Programs provide each student with a flash drive. The fee is not for fundraising, but advertising services.
8. Who do I send the advertisement to?
The Microsoft Word Document, Publisher file, or PDF will need to be sent to Trish Watson at email@example.com by June 1.
9. What is the deadline for turning in the advertisement?
The deadline to submit a Microsoft Word Document, Publisher file, PDF, or hard copy of the flyer is June 1.
10. Can New Student Programs generate a flyer if my business provides general information?
Unfortunately, we are unable to do so at this time.
