The Kent State University at Ashtabula Campus will be launching a new promotional campaign to get students to open, read and act upon emails sent to them from the campus. A student’s artwork will be the main visual representation of the entire campaign.

Alicia Colicchio submitted the winning design in a contest held for students to create an image to go with the Campus’ “You’ve Got Mail” promotional campaign.YGM Campaign image

Colicchio, a Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies major, drew the Kent State mascot Flash in full flight while holding an envelope. This image will appear not only in flyers and other pieces of communications about the importance of opening emails, but will appear in the emails as well.

Retention Specialist Liz Driscoll felt that the students needed to be reminded exactly of how important opening, reading and acting upon email is for the student. “We have students who miss important deadlines and then wonder why they got dropped from a class,” Driscoll said. “Most of the time it’s because they didn’t pay attention to an email that was sent to them from the university.”

Email is the official form of communication from Kent State University.
