University of Wisconsin–Madison


Every Tuesday from 5:45p.m. to 6:45p.m. we gather in Vilas Hall, Room 2195, to hear from professionals in the advertising industry. Our general meetings aren’t just learning opportunities. They are chances to make a break for it, meet and greet our future bosses and spark new campaign ideas. Our workshops teach, share and discuss what is currently ‘hot’ in advertising. They’re topical. They’re dynamic. They’re priceless.

Follow us on Instagram and Twitter for live updates from these meetings.

Think of it this way: when you are competing for a job 10 years from now, the difference between you and the other candidate could be the connection you made at an Ad Club social. College is fun, and Ad Club socials make it even better.

Ad Club Agency – where the magic happens. We meet every Tuesday from 6:45p.m.-7:15p.m. after general meetings. Agency helps you build your portfolio while gaining hands-on experience working with real world clients! From account management and graphic design, to copywriting and social media, you will soon be able to say “I’ve dabbled” with them all.

Is there a membership fee?

Yes. $45 in the fall (for a full year membership) and $35 in the spring. What will you get? Pizza at every meeting, club swag, agency tours, socials, networking opportunities and more!

What majors fit with ad club?

Most of our members are current/prospective students of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication or the Wisconsin School of Business. However, we have many communication arts, graphic design, creative writing and psychology students join the club, too. To be honest, if you have a nice brain and great sense of humor, you’ll fit right in! We’re a proud, diverse bunch of freaks.
