We Get College Students
(and Parents Too)

We know what they want, who they listen to, and how they make decisions. Use our experience with this audience to drive your sales.

A Young and Knowing Generation

“Gen Z” includes digital natives who learn about the world from hundreds of sources. They are influenced by their parents, peers, social media, and real-world messages. They crave authentic experiences. Their purchasing decisions reflect their personal values.

We speak Gen Z.

More than ever before, teens and young adults are driving family spending. Almost 90% of parents surveyed by the National Retail Federation say their children have a say in household purchases. With more than 19 million students enrolled in American colleges and universities, this generation packs tremendous purchasing power.

Times Are Changing

The days are long gone when you could buy a billboard and get results. You need to go deeper than brand awareness with content that answers questions and changes minds. A modern multi-pronged campus marketing campaign uses always-on messaging across many different channels.

Wherever they go, there we are.

No Student Is an Island

Student opinions are shaped by their friends and the people they admire and follow. Students notice catchy messages as they attend classes and events on campus. They read reviews on YouTube and TikTok. They sometimes even listen to their parents.

We influence the influencers.
