Audience • The Audience for the Greek community is graduating high school students. • These students range from around 18-25. • Students have to be ready for a great opportunity and open to new ideas.
Strategies & Tactics • Jacksonville State needs to plan a Greek Rally after all Preview Days. • Brochures and Compact Disc’s describing the benefits of Greek Life should be mailed out 6 months prior to the Fall semester.
Calendar • November 1, 2008 is the first Preview Day and will start the kick-off of the first Greek Rally. • The Rally will be promoted as one of the events to take place at the Preview Day. • Brochures and compact discs must be mailed out 6 months prior to the Fall semester.
