The Glen Oaks Community College Communications and Marketing Department recently received a “Gold” award in the 33rd Annual Educational Advertising Awards for the 2017 Glen Oaks Holiday Card titled “The Students were Nestled.”

A national panel of education industry specialists reviewed all entered pieces, presenting gold, silver, bronze and merit awards based on creativity, marketing execution and message impact.

The cover of card depicted a moonlit-snowy evening scene of the new Devier Student Suites with the text “The Students were Nestled all Snug in Their Beds.” The college’s Communications and Marketing team of Valorie Juergens, executive director of communications and marketing, and Lauren Sterling, assistant director, chose to photograph the new campus suites and design it for the card since construction of the new residence hall was the highlight for the college in 2017.

The card was printed by Lawson Printers in Battle Creek, Michigan.
