Student advertising team gets high marks in national competition

April 20, 2012

The Loyola University New Orleans student-created advertising team, Rebirth Advertising, placed fourth in their region in the American Advertising Federation's annual national student competition for their campaign, "Meet Your Match," produced for Nissan Americas.

Loyola's team consisted of David Aviles, Ophelia Battle, Cristina Chiu, Kristin Diaz, Kate Gremillion, Erica Guastella, Norrene John, Jared Katsoupis, Jamie Martin, Eddie Schneider, John Bickle and Kylie Tregre. They competed in Nashville last week against colleges from Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee and finished fourth out of nine schools in their district and were the highest-ranked school from Louisiana.

"I could not be prouder of the creativity and hard work these students put into this campaign," said Yolanda Cal, Ph.D., advertising sequence head. "They were wonderful representatives of the School of Mass Communication."

The University of Alabama won the District 7 competition and will represent the district in June at the national competition in Austin, Texas.
