FRESHERS WEEK

06

In late September each year we have around 6,000 students joining us across the Cambridge, Chelmsford, Peterborough and London campuses. As a welcome to our university and the cities we utilise a number of communication methods to introduce students to the products and services of the Students’ Union and our partners. Student spending habits haven’t yet been developed, and they’re at their most receptive to new products and services in their first few weeks at university. Your promotional material such as flyers, pens, bottle openers and fridge magnets could be included in our high quality welcome bags. We can offer you a link on the pre-arrival email, advertising in our fortnightly email newsletter, a printed advert or voucher in our Freshers Guide, or perhaps book a stall at our Fresher’s Fair so that your message reaches both new and returning students. Your organisation can make a lasting impression and develop long term brand awareness. Our students are potential lifelong customers.

Wall Planners Each year we print and distribute two wall planners, in September for semester one and in January for semester two. Students actively seek out the wall planner to keep up with essential social events. The wall planners cover the entire academic year and includes all ARU Students’ Union events, both on and off campus. Before our students arrive in their new accommodation, our semester one wall planner will be on display in each room of Anglia Ruskin University owned and affiliated halls of residence. Being a sponsor of the wall planner will provide you with a great head start in reaching your message across to our students in the comfort of their “new home”. Wall planners will also be handed out at key events, such as our Freshers Fair. The wall-planners will be available digitally all year for students to download from our website. Advertising on the wall planner will provide your business with a strong initial impact, with the option of promoting student days/dates/events on the planner specific to your business.

SPONSORSHIP

16

Events Anglia Ruskin Students’ Union run a variety of events throughout the year and we are always looking for sponsorship support. The events range from large one off events such as our annual SU Awards through to regular club nights and smaller bespoke activities within the university. Sponsorship can be via financial donations or through the supply of services such as food venders, activities, technical services or any other skills or services. Give It A Go Give It A Go is all about trying something new, something the students might never have done before or something they never thought they would. Give It A Go’s (GIAG’s) are one off or limited number activities and trips the Students’ Union put on throughout the year. Previous activities have ranged from learning sign language to rock climbing, cheese & wine tasting and website development, along with trips to Brighton, London, Thorpe Park and West End shows. If you have a service and feel our students could ‘Give It A Go’, we will be happy to promote your service to our students via website, leaflets, email and posters.

ONSITE STALLS Meet students face to face and promote your business by booking a day on one of our campuses!

WEBSITE & PAPER ADVERTISING

17

Website Our website, www.angliastudent.com, is used by prospective students as well as current students. Last academic year saw over 200,000 visitors and over 1 million page views. Banners give you a visual opportunity to promote and attract students to your services through url linking. Cost: Small Banner (w 450 x h 75 pixels with a 300dpi) £200 per calendar month Leafleting on Campus and Posters If you want to distribute leaflets or samples but don’t need a stand on campus then a simple leafleting or poster campaign is likely to be the best option. Our friendly and professional staff can distribute around 500 items per day. Our staff use their excellent knowledge of the campus to select the best areas for distribution at different times of the day. Placed in the busiest locations within Anglia Ruskin University, posters are a simple, but successful way to reinforce your message to the student market! With several posters you can re-enforce the same message at a number of locations across the University. We control a large number of poster sites around both the university buildings and student halls on both campuses. Cost: Leafleting (per 1000) £175 Posters (30 x A3) £50 per month
