Coming Spring 2013: Community Workshop Series 

By Maggie Quan


In my experience as the Common Ground Newsletter & Marketing intern at the Cross-Cultural Center, I have seen many passionate student and staff leaders who develop amazing programs for the community, but who face problems when it comes to the communication or marketing aspects of programming, be it making flyers or getting the word out. I don't blame people for not being well versed in Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop - those programs cost hundreds of dollars and taking classes to learn those programs are just as costly. - Read More
