New Marketing Campaign Highlights
Boston-Suffolk Connection
This is Boston. This is Suffolk.
That simple but catchy phrase is the message behind Suffolk’s new marketing
campaign for Undergraduate Admission.
“It is a very specific message to a very specific audience,” said Kathleen Peets, managing associate director of Creative Services.
University Media Services departments worked closely with Undergraduate Admission
to develop the campaign. Research, focus groups and strategizing set the stage for creation of the final informational and promotional elements—a virtual tour, an interactive
campus map and a series of publications.
“This was definitely a team effort,” said Peets. “Everyone had to know our product
from beginning to end.”
The overall concept was to promote Suffolk and its strong connection with Boston and
its historic, cultural and social significance. Boston Common, Beacon Hill, Downtown
Crossing and Faneuil Hall. TD Banknorth Garden, Fenway Park and the Theater District.
“One of the key points we discovered is that people come to Suffolk because of
Boston, so we built on that fact,” said University Media and Creative Services Director
Midge Wilcke. “Suffolk is a great and exciting place to go to school because of where it is
located—in the heart of Boston. Students who come here know that, in addition to receiving a quality education, they will be only a few steps from where everything happens.”
In order to be as accurate as possible in their marketing efforts, Wilcke and her staff
had to learn about what makes today’s undergraduate student tick. “We found out what

Honored With Heritage Medallions
The University recognized the commitment of four people who made outstanding contributions to
the life of the University through its 2008 Heritage Medallion Ceremony on Sept. 17 Those attending
included President David J. Sargent and College of Arts and Sciences Associate Dean David Robbins,
chair of the Heritage Committee; honorees William F Coughlin, part-time counselor, Undergraduate
Admission, and retired director of Admission; and Herbert Lemelman, professor of law and former
associate law dean. College of Arts and Sciences Dean Kenneth Greenberg accepted the medallion
for recipient Alexandra Dumas Todd, professor and former chair of the Sociology department, while
Joseph H. Strain, retired dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, received the medallion on behalf
of the late Robert J. Munce, president (1954–1960) and chancellor emeritus. (Photo by John Gillooly)

Campus Handles Nearly 100 Events a Month
The University is a beehive of activity year-round, and the proof is in Facilities
Management event statistics.
Since Facilities Management began using a new online work request system on April 1, it
has received 650 event requests. That’s an average of nearly 100 events per month, or more
than three per day.
Facilities Management schedules staff seven days a week and from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
weekdays to handle the load.
“Campus events put a huge workload on the facilities staff,” said James Wallace, director
of Facilities Operations. “Many events need to be set up after normal business hours,
including weekends. And for every event setup there is a breakdown afterwards, so the
workload is really doubled.”
The Law School hosted the majority of the 552 events completed as of Oct. 16, with
372 taking place there.
There were 98 active requests in the system on that date, with 60 in the Law School,
24 in Donahue and seven in Sawyer. The few remaining were spread throughout other
campus buildings.

page, or go to

teens read, what clothes they wear, what
music they listen to and what trends they’re
interested in,” said Wilcke. “We had to put
ourselves in their shoes.”
Said Peets: “This marketing campaign is
to recruit students for our College of Arts
and Sciences and Sawyer Business School,
educating them and their parents about
what this institution is all about. We really
did our homework on who we are trying to
reach, and we continue to do so.”
Wilcke pointed out that the three
publications promoting “This is Boston.
This is Suffolk.”—An Introduction to Suffolk
University, Information for International
Students, and Viewbook 2008–09—are
smaller and more compact than marketing
materials produced in years past.
“The purpose of these pieces is to whet
people’s appetite and direct them to our
Web site. These publications, the virtual
tour and the interactive campus map are all
part of an admission counselor’s tool kit.”
Director of Undergraduate Admission
John Hamel is delighted with the new
marketing campaign. “We want the information we provide to prospective students and
families to accurately represent the University
so that students will elect to apply and
attend our school and ultimately graduate
from Suffolk,” said Hamel. “This marketing
campaign is right on target, and it enables
us to continually update information that is
important in telling the Suffolk story.”

Virtual Tour and Campus Map Speak to Prospective Students
The new marketing campaign for under­
grad­ ate admission—“This is Boston. This is
Suffolk.”—includes a virtual tour and interactive campus map, giving people from all over
the world a front-row seat at the University and
its neighborhood: the city of Boston.
University Media and Creative Services
spent a year creating the communication
vehicle, working in collaboration with
CampusTours Inc., an interactive media and
software company.
The virtual tour is comprised of 11 videos,
each about 90 seconds long. The videos feature
nine Suffolk students and two professors in an
interactive, flash-based, online “experience.”
“Our goal was to create an online atmosphere
that would give prospective students the same
experience that they would have if they were on
campus,” said University Media and Creative
Services Director Midge Wilcke. “We wanted to
provide them with the best chance possible to
test drive Suffolk. A lot of schools have virtual
campus tours, but what we wanted to do was
take this to another level.”
George Comeau, managing associate director of University Media and Creative Services,
worked closely with CampusTours throughout
the project, managing a creative and technical
group of designers, video editors, flash engineers and content managers. “There was always real collaboration
going on,” said Comeau. “We would have weekly conference calls
involving people from all over the country.”
Closer to home, Comeau credits Suffolk junior Rebecca Bishop
for her role on the in-house team. “She did a great job for us,” said
Comeau. “She was a production manager, but I gave her the title of
‘director of authenticity.’” Bishop managed workflow and guaranteed that the project would speak directly to the student audience.
It took 2,031 elements—photographs, video, audio and Web
links—to create the virtual tour.
An interactive campus map, “Suffolk Univercity,” was created
by illustrator John Roman, a 1974 graduate of the New England
School of Art & Design, as part of the virtual tour.

“In this illustrated city/campus map, I wanted to show Suffolk’s
relationship to the sites and landmarks of Boston that are within
the school’s proximity,” said Roman. “My intention on this project
was to accentuate Suffolk University’s structures within the maze of
Boston’s downtown architecture and accomplish this in a way that
captures the urban spirit and fun, while maintaining a priority of
focus on Suffolk’s position amidst the bustle of the city.”
The Suffolk University Virtual Tour and Interactive Campus Map
was named the Adobe Site of the Day on October 3. Suffolk was
only the 30th higher education institution to receive this award.
Said Wilcke: “It was a wonderful honor and a tribute to all the
hard work and dedication of everyone involved in putting this all

Connections Depicts Service Learning in El Salvador
Connections: Suffolk University Keeps Moakley
Legacy Alive in El Salvador presents a look
at the ongoing relationship between Suffolk
University and the Salvadoran people.
The exhibit, at the Adams Gallery
through Jan. 12, 2009, features photographs
from Suffolk University service-learning
efforts in Boston-area communities and in
El Salvador.
The late Congressman John Joseph
Moakley played an important role in moving
El Salvador beyond repression and rebellion
to peace. In doing so, he forged a lasting
relationship with the people of El Salvador.
Students and faculty visit El Salvador
annually, retracing Moakley’s path from San
Salvador to rural villages. Along the way
they have met officials, former guerrillas
and witnesses who assisted Moakley in the
congressional investigation that helped pave
the way to peace in El Salvador.
The exhibit also presents an encore
showing of El Congresista: Joe Moakley en El
Salvador, a display of photos and documents
from the John Joseph Moakley Archive that
explore El Salvador, the civil war and the
conflict’s impact on the Salvadoran people.
The campus community is invited to
an opening reception for the exhibit from
5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19. RSVP:

celebrating Mass and is revered as a martyr by many Salvadorans, 2008. (Photo by Tom Gearty)

Behind the Image at NESAD

The gallery at the New England School of
Art & Design will present Behind the Image,
an exhibit of works of seven established
artists who live and work in the Boston area,
from Nov. 6, 2008–Jan. 3, 2009.
An opening reception will be held from
5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6.
Artists exhibiting are Hannah Barrett,
Dana Clancy, Lisa Costanzo, Heather
Hobler, John Guthrie, Cristi Rinklin and
Joe Wardwell.
The exhibit reveals some of the investigations, processes and inspirations these artists
used to produce specific artworks.
Their highly crafted paintings and
drawings are shown alongside the sketches,



Dana Clancy, study for “ The Storm Outside the Window (2008)”

Internet and magazine sources; art history
books; and color studies that informed their
creative decision-making.
In effect, the curator attempts to re-create
the “studio wall” covered with unexpected
images, postcards and inspirational objects
that exist in each of the artist’s studios.

The finished work is given a history
through this “contextualizing” of the
artwork, with early stages of thought
and jumping-off points all in evidence.
Visitors to the gallery will learn from
seeing just what is “behind the image” in
these diverse artistic works.
