Question: What stars Father Wild, Marquette students and Central Mall?
Answer: Our new television commercial. The commercial debuts in November
and will run throughout the year during select broadcasts of men’s basketball
games, but you can get a preview at www.marquette.edu/btd/. You can also
check out our new print ads, which will run weekly in Milwaukee’s Business
Journal, the online version of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and some high
school newspapers. The ad campaign highlights how Marquette students,
faculty and alumni make a difference in the world.
