Cafe Abroad in Print

Freddie Chavda, a 2008 Marquette University graduate is spearheading a college campaign competition for Café Abroad.

According to Freddie's communique: "Since its inception in 2006, Café Abroad has become a name known by study abroad-minded students and schools thanks to its magazine, Café Abroad InPRINT, which is distributed to more than 320 study abroad offices, and available online at www.cafeabroadinprint.com.

"In the past year, more than a dozen university study abroad offices have adopted Café Abroad's Network Solution, an online platform that allows schools to interact with their prospective, current and returned study abroad students using a private network customized by the university and hosted on www.cafeabroad.com.

"Café Abroad also fosters close ties with students through its numerous internships offered to students who are studying all over the world. Interns generate the content on the website, which includes hundreds of journalism articles, events, reviews, photographs, blogs and more. Through its interns' efforts, Café Abroad has become the largest online student generated study abroad resource."

Keeping with the organization's commitment and dedication to students, Freddie invites CCNY MCA students to join Café Abroad's 2008 Campaign Competition. Participants are accepted until Friday, September 26, 2008 and the competition will extend to the end of November 2008. Advertising and marketing students are encouraged to enter; the competition challenges them to create an innovative and well thought out integrated advertising and marketing campaign for Café Abroad. Café Abroad encourages students to work in teams, with ideally 3-5 members per group.

If you are interested in coordinating a team, reach out to any MCA professor. Once an official entry form is completed and returned, Café Abroad will provide an official schedule for the competition and detailed information regarding the campaign’s focal points. Questions?
