Club Carnival is a once- a-semester event at which all HPU clubs and organizations get a chance to recruit current and new HPU students and showcase their products, activities, or agendas.

“ Forty and fabulous” was the theme of Akamai Advertising for HPU’s 40th birthday. “The student-based advertising agency designed its own slogan and created unique logos and advertisements for HPU’s birthday celebration,” said faculty advisor Dr. Joanne Gula. A large number of students stopped at the Akamai tent to check out the artwork and logo designs produced by club members such as senior visual communication major, Amy Stanley.

“It was fun using my own picture to create an ad,” Stanley said. She had a chance to create an advertisement that pictured herself sunbathing at the beach. Other student-created print ads, banners, and sketches were proudly displayed, and Gula mentioned that all the artwork was produced in HPU classes or utilized skills learned in classrooms at HPU.

Students who join Akamai also become members of the American Advertising Federation and get a chance to compete in the National Student Advertising Competition. Gula added, “Membership in Akamai and competing with the club are great resume builders.”

HPU junior Lyan Ammerman, who was answering questions and handing out brochures, said, “We want people to join, but more so we want people to get involved.”

HPU students can be part of Akamai for $40 a year. Applications are available at the College of Communication Office at 1132 Bishop Street, Suite 504.

Gula added that “It is well worth it to join,” because of the benefits that come with the membership, such as gaining access to the AAF American Internship Directory, attending AD2 meetings with local professionals, and the chance to work on an advertising campaign for a local non-profit agency. “These benefits will get HPU students ahead in the competitive world of professional advertising, especially when it comes to getting hired,” said Gula.
