Oh look, you’ve stumbled upon Advertising Club! You probably want to know more! Well, here’s what we’re all about!

Advertising Club is rooted in building the next generation of advertising professionals. Our goal is to prepare our members for the advertising world with unique and formative experiences, similar to that of an agency.


We invite a variety of talented professionals from all spectrums of advertising, marketing and communications to discuss the pathways they took into their current careers as well as tricks and tips on how they navigated their specific fields.


In Agency you have the opportunity to work with real businesses and organizations around campus in creating your own advertising campaign with other Ad Club members to grow your advertising portfolio. You and your team will have individual agency positions including an Account Manager, Graphic Designer, Social Media Manager, Copywriter and Production Director.


This semester, we will be touring agencies around the country safely from our our dorms/apartments/homes. Normally, we host tour agency tours a semester to visit some of the best agencies in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis.


We will still be having socials this year – via Zoom! COVID won’t stop game nights, and while zoom socials don’t sound like your typical gathering, we guarantee you won’t want to miss out on meeting your fellow Ad Club members!

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. If you consider yourself an innovator, creator, outside-of-the-box thinker, designer or producer, you’ll fit right in.
