Inside IPFW
IPFW to Unveil New TV Spot
Through a partnership with Boyden & Youngblutt (Fort Wayne, Ind.), University Relations and Communications has produced a new TV spot for IPFW, entitled "Dare to Imagine." The advertisement is scheduled to begin airing in Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Lima, Ohio markets starting Monday, February 13.

The ad capitalizes on a "mixed media" approach, using a mixture of live action and animation to represent the wide breadth of interests of our students. Christina Egts of Boyden & Youngblutt said her company wanted to "achieve a convincing and environmentally immersive animation."

Jack Patton, IPFW's director of marketing, believes the advertisement achieves its goals of "being visually aspirational, distinctive in the marketplace, and gaining name recognition among our target markets."


"Dare to Imagine" will appear on a variety of cable networks during such widely viewed programming as American Idol and Glee, and will air in RAVE and Carmike theatres throughout March.

Featured Faculty Lecture Series
Talia Bugel IPFW's Featured Faculty Lecture Series continues Friday, February 10. Assistant Professor of Spanish Talia Bugel will present "Foreign Languages: What Can We Do with Them?"

Every Friday in February, students, faculty, staff, and the public are invited to meet the Featured Faculty and learn more about their outstanding work. Lectures are from noon to 1 p.m. on the second floor of the Helmke Library.  All attendees can enjoy free pizza and soda. Read about the lectures ...
