Higher education is associated with a very noble history, but the new University of San Francisco marketing campaign gets down to the nitty gritty with slogans that grab attention. The advertisements speak to a younger demographic regarding such important topics related to education as location, social status and even personal values.

Created in partnership with Hub Strategy, the University of San Francisco advertisements have come to be critically acclaimed by many members of the targeted group. Speaking on the success of the campaign, David Macmillan who is the Vice President for Communications and Marketing for the university explains, "It has been amazing to hear so many members of our target audience actually repeat our ad headlines verbatim and tell us about heated office conversations relating to the campaign." Perhaps we'll see more of this casual style of advertising take a stronger precedence in the near future to help grab the attention of younger demographics.
