SHRL Marketing Team Receives ACUHO-I Marketing Award


The Student Housing and Residential Life (SHRL) marketing team was recognized at the 5th annual Marketing Awards and Showcase at the Association of College and University Housing Officers – International (ACUHO-I) Virtual Business Operations Conference from October 26-27, 2020. With submissions across 13 categories, the team was awarded second place in the “Specialty” category for their SHRL Staff Welcome Box.

The ACUHO-I Marketing Awards serve as an annual opportunity to recognize well-designed and innovative media for residence life and housing operations. These awards acknowledge ACUHO-I members and their departments for their accomplishments and creativity.

The purpose of the Staff Welcome Box was to provide new team members with a supply of SHRL promotional items, a variety of Cougar Red swag to promote campus pride, and a special note from their supervisor to let them know they are a valuable part of the department.

“Whenever we welcome someone to our team, it’s important that we make a good first impression. The first day on the job can be overwhelming and exciting so we wanted to set our new employees up for success with a box of items that made them feel connected to the department and the university,” Alexsaundra Preston, Assistant Director for Marketing, stated.

Team members who contributed to the project include Alexsaundra Preston, Assistant Director for Marketing; Rhoda Arnes, Marketing Coordinator; Teeba Rose, Marketing Manager; Elise Featherly, Communication Coordinator.

The entire SHRL Department would like to congratulate the SHRL marketing team on their excellent work.
