Virginia International University is the proud recipient of two major awards in the 30th Annual Educational Advertising Awards competition. VIU received a bronze award for its 2015 VIU Calendar as well as a merit award for the third issue of University Magazine. This is a big achievement for the Media Department whose design and creative ideas brought the publications to life.
The university calendar depicts VIU’s students across each month of the year. The theme behind the 2015 publication was the philosophies that fuel students toward achieving their academic goals. Twelve famous quotes from famous personalities around the work – like Henry L. Doheherty, Nelson Mandela, Will Rogers, and Albert Einstein – added value and meaning to each page of the calendar.
VIU’s University Magazine features student-centered articles, timely news stories, a spotlight on outstanding faculty, and upcoming VIU events. In the third issue, several articles highlighted student success stories and special interest stories of students from around the globe. The informative content succeeded in making it a cherished piece of VIU history.
