Publicity Programmers are undergraduate students who are responsible for reaching the entire AppState community to inform them about UREC, our programs, our facilities, and special events. Publicity programmers achieve this through a variety of methods including creating flyers, posters, and banners, participating in promotional tables throughout the semester, and updating bulletin boards and our website. These programmers work to engage with and encourage students, faculty, and staff to participate in a variety of activities to ensure that all members of the campus community may have the complete recreation experience. Each area (Administration, Aquatics, Club Sports, Fitness, Intramurals, and Outdoor Programs) has a publicity programmer who works to specifically promote activities and events within that area while simultaneously working as a team to promote UREC as a whole. This position is a great opportunity for students interested in marketing, graphic design, public relations, or health promotion careers.
