To Whom It May Concern: The Daily Titan understands that our advertisers need an active, creative medium that not only tells, but also sells. Our college publication offers many unique advantages that complement daily contact with a market that is constantly changing. I would like to invite you to advertise your program and events in three different ways. The Daily Titan offers affordable online advertising. For $60 you can purchase a “Top Banner” position on our website. This ad will deliver 10,000 page views, which means 10,000 current students, alumni, and members of the community will have the opportunity to see your ad. The Daily Titan can design your online ad free of charge as well as link to your website. Your organization is also invited to take part in the outdoor AdRax advertising program. The new Daily Titan paper racks now have a 17”x21” full color poster in many high-traffic locations on campus. The total investment for this advertising space is $300 per location for a full month. The cost is less than running a quarter page black and white ad once in The Daily Titan. The Daily Titan also offers front page, full-color advertising. The contract runs for a week with full color for a total cost of only $1,200 for a six column by two-inch banner ad. The Daily Titan normally charges $600 for color per day. Your investment would normally cost $2,803.20. Included in this envelope is our newly updated Media kit, which outlines all of the different advertising opportunities. Please feel free to contact me to set up a meeting to discuss how to promote your organization further. I look forward to helping you develop the ideal advertising plan that will work for you. Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely,

Sarah Oak Advertising Manager The Daily Titan P: 714.278.4411 F: 714.278.2702 soak@dailytitan.com

California Faculty Association members voted unanimously to accept the tentative agreement it reached with the California State University administration in April. Union members voted on deals about issues of salary, workload, parking, grievances and appointments through recommendations offered in the fact-finding report. “It’s a good contract,” said CFA Fullerton chapter President G. Nanjundappa. “I’m glad most of the faculty members were happy with it.” Under the new contract, faculty would receive raises that would total 20.7 percent, in phases retroactive to July 2006 through 2010. In addition, some faculty will get added

raises based on merit, seniority and new salary steps fashioned in their pay ladders, according to the union’s Web site. The total salary package will cost CSU more than $400 million over four years, according to the CSU Web site. A contract vote was held last week, in which 97 percent of CFA members voted to approve the provisional contract – after nearly two years of negotiations that almost resulted in a strike. CFA’s 12,000 union members were eligible to vote on the ratification of the tentative agreement, although the union bargains on behalf of about 23,000 campus workers. The contract vote brought in a 65 percent voter turnout last week, down from the 81 percent who cast their ballot in April on whether to sanction

a series of two-day rolling strikes. “I am pretty confident that they’ll ratify the agreements and make it a reality,” Nanjundappa said. The CSU Trustees, which include 19 members and 1 student alternate, will decide whether to implement the contract during their May 15 meeting, according to Paul Browning, a CSU spokesman. “We are happy to ratify this contract and hope that the CSU administration will do the same,” CFA President John Travis said in a press release. “Through intense negotiations, faculty activism and finally strike preparations, the CSU faculty have won a contract that provides fair salaries, retirement security, proper grievance procedures and much more.” “Our focus now is on ensuring the university has adequate resources to pay for compensation increases,”

CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed said in a statement. “We will continue working with the Legislature and the Governor to secure additional funding to minimize campus impacts.” According to a CSU press release, the average salary for a tenure-track faculty member will increase from $74,000 to $90,749, and the average salary for a full-time, full professor with tenure from $86,000 to $105,465 by the end of the contract period. The strike was a “key factor” in producing an agreement both the union and the CSU could agree on, according to Nanjundappa. “It sent a strong message to the chancellor that we were not happy with the way he dealt with negotiations,” Nanjundappa said. “We’ll see what happens.”

Each year students of Engineering 419 gear up to compete against schools around the globe in the Society of Automotive Engineers Collegiate Design Competitions. Of the five major projects produced, two of them competed at the competition this year, which included a radiocontrolled aircraft and a Mini Baja, which is a dune buggy-like vehicle. The class, taught by engineering Professor Jesa Kreiner, provides an arena for graduating mechanical engineering students to put their knowledge to the test. In aero design, a team of six students designed and constructed a radio-controlled aircraft that was set out to carry as much cargo weight as possible within a restricted wing area of 1,000 square inches. The testing process was conducted with the help of a wind-tunnel that would simulate actual flight. With the help of computer modeling and simulation, they were able to create landing gear that would allow the plane to ease safely onto the ground. At this year’s competition the safety of the landing gear could not stop an untimely crash. “We were in eighth place after our presentation and technical report, and then we had an engine malfunction, [the plane] crashed and snapped the wing in half,” 29-yearold engineering student Tony Bova said. Out of 37 teams, Cal State Fullerton’s aero design team placed 17th

g n i m o c HomeBBQ RoseRowdies

EVENT MARKETING. 1) HOMECOMING. We hosted a BBQ at Tailgating for all alumni, students and friends of Central Michigan Life. Not only did we feed our readers, but we also handed out 90th Anniversary Football tattoos, What A Life! bracelets and 90th Anniversary What A Life t-shirts. The tailgating tent was lined with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Decade Postersâ&#x20AC;? displaying front pages of Central Michigan Life through the 9 decades of covering Central Michigan University. 2) ROSE ROWDIE BASKETBALL.

During November and December games, we handed out special papers for the CMU basketball fans known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rose Rowdiesâ&#x20AC;? to hold up at the games. These are very popular with the group. In addition, these crazy fans were given special 90th Anniversary Basketball tattoos.


Sales Promotion Materials

Central Michigan Life

k o o b e Fac Flair!

iL fe Tawt itter! SOCIAL NETWORKING. 1) FACEBOOK.

Our Facebook page was updated with the 90th anniversary logo. Readers and advertisers were given weekly reminders on CM LIFE’s Facebook page of Anniversary activities and specials. We even created special “pieces of flair” for people to add to their Facebook pages.

2) TWITTER.

Our Twitter page also helped reinforce our birthday message to a broader audience. It was a great way to announce the official “birthday” date, and interact directly with many CMU and CM LIFE alumni. The “tweets” back were great.

FACE TO FACE MEETINGS 1) RESIDENCE HALL MEETINGS.

Our public relations interns attended residence hall council (especially freshman halls) meetings during the first month of school. During these meetings we introduced the paper to the new student population. The review included publication dates and where to get a copy, breaking news and the other elements of the online product, our 90th Anniversary significance and events, communicating group events and story ideas to the CM LIFE newsroom, and signing them up for CM LIFE Facebook follow up. We also included a reminder of the Anniversary edition on December 3rd. At the end of each session, a quick Q & A is conducted and winners were rewarded with a CM LIFE “What A Life” 90th Anniversary T-Shirt and bracelet.

The advertising rates on this were simple, cheap and effective. We had our biggest issue of the semester, except for the BTS issue. $90 per quarter page. Advertisers could buy in increments of quarter pages at $90 per quarter up to a full page. The only requirement was they had to have a congratulatory message to Central Michigan Life somewhere in their ad. Everyone was happy to do so, and many included our 90th Anniversary logo.
