City of Mesa called “Mesa Educates U.”
The cooperative marketing program is designed to raise the profile of Mesa as a premier destination for higher education and highlights the two community colleges as well as A.T. Still University, Albright College, Benedictine University, Upper Iowa University, Westminster College, and Wilkes University.
“Each of these institutions brings unique program offerings to the table and this initiative makes it easy for prospective students to discover all that Mesa has to offer,” said Mesa City Manager Chris Brady.
The campaign features a 20+ page website at MesaEducatesU.org, a 20+ page app, and a facebook page. In addition to higher education information, the Mesa Educates U campaign also shares things to do in Mesa, how to choose the right school, and even how to pay for college with details on the Mesa Educates U scholarship program.
The campaign is anchored by Discover U Weekend scheduled for March 8-9. Discover U Weekend will give prospective students a chance to meet with school representatives at signature events in Mesa — at Mesa’s 2nd Friday Night Out monthly block party on March 8 and during the Chicago Cubs spring training game at Hohokam Stadium on March 9 (sign up to win tickets to the Cubs spring training game on MesaEducatesU.org.)
