OCM welcomes input from the faculty, staff and students in its efforts to continually promote the College and the achievements of our colleagues.

Advertising

Trying to contact students can be difficult if you don't know how. Before you consider paying for advertising, make sure that you've:

  • utilized our video display system
  • submitted your news item for Web and press promotion
  • approved your posters for the fifth floor walkway.

If your communications require a more sophisticated outside campaign, then its time to meet with our advertising representative to discuss the various media outlets through which you can advertise.

Direct Mail

If you are introducing a new program or event series to the college, direct mail can be a cost-effective way to reach your audience.

OCM can help you purchase address lists for our geographic region. Then, we can help tailor your message to attract your target audience back to you.

Photography

If you are hosting an event on campus and would like to have photos taken, OCM will either:

  • provide you with a camera
  • send professional staff to take photos.

You will be responsible for distributing and collecting photograph releases from your students/attendees. We suggest having students sign ahead of time if it is a class event. If you have a variable guest list, please ask attendees to sign when they check in at your event. The OCM is not permitted to release any photographs without proper authorization from participants.
