Welcome to NYU Class of 2017! Mktsoc kicked off the semester last Wednesday with an amazing meeting featuring food, fun, and info for over 160 students. What an amazing turnout.
We started off the meeting with a great introduction from our e-board and learned a little bit more about the club.
Then we announced a lucky freshman as the winner of our Favorite Brand contest! She took home an awesome Marketing Society t-shirt for telling us about her favorite brand, Express, at the club fair.
After Stan gave everyone the run down of all the awesome events to come this semester, the club tested wits in a game of Brand Scattergories, with the winner taking home the crown with an astounding 14 unique words.
We’re sorry about the last of pictures in this post and the food crunch this past past week. But, come back for this week’s meeting, because we’re sure to have enough amazing Korilla BBQ for everyone, sponsored by our fabulous guest panel from Nielsen.
Can’t wait to see you there :)
So how many people feel like at Stern, everyone and their mom is majoring in Finance? -Katherine
On Wednesday during common hour we had our very first Marketing Society event of Spring 2013, woohoo! Our president Katherine started it off by giving a rundown of all the exciting programs and events we have in store for this semester, what we're all about, and why Marketing Society is awesome. Professor Narayanan, our distinguished and always adorable faculty advisor, made a brief guest appearance, and then we went on to e-board introductions. These introductions are always hilarious because nobody seems to remember how/why/when they chose their favorite brands or slogans, but we make it work in the end (also, Katherine was being super sneaky/proactive and updating some of the profiles as we went along, so we'll be all set for next time!).
Next up was Brand Taboo! The two sides of the room faced off in a friendly verbal charades competition. Just as the game was getting pretty intense, our treasurer Josh arrived with several delicious pizzas. Fooooooooooooood! Yes! The pizza was consumed, Taboo was resumed, and in the end, team Destiny's Children was presumed...the winner!
Okay, apologies to y'all for that terrible rhyme, and for not having pictures from the meeting. To make up for it I've included a fierce photo of Beyoncé instead (source).
Next Monday (after this giant upcoming blizzard) will be our event with Macy's- hope to see you there!
So yesterday during common hour, we had our first Marketing Society meeting of the year. Woo! If you were there, you saw that there were so many people that there were not enough seats. (If you were one of the seatless people, I am so sorry.)
The meeting started off with our lovely president Katherine talking about marketing stuff and society stuff and all the really cool events coming up. (TV Guide is coming in next week. Who's pumped?) Then she started introducing the E-board members. This turned out to be a lot funnier than we anticipated. A lot of the E-board members did not remember submitting the brands, slogans, and pictures that they did. Maria made a super cheesy joke about Kraft (cause they have macaroni and cheese...get it...) and Kris had a great photo from when he studied abroad (he was getting intimate with a glass of beer.) When I went up (last) to introduce myself, there was a disruption from the back of the room.
Apparently after I said my slogan is "You're so cute", a girl laughed and sneezed at the same time creating one of the strangest sounds I've ever heard. Chaos ensued! Except not really. We actually just moved on to Brand Bingo which is one of the Marketing Society's favorite games after Brand Taboo, of course.
The lucky winners received a Google+ sticker and a membership point. Yay! Just a reminder, to be considered a member you need to attend 4 speaker events and a combination of social events and community services events and you need to have fun. You don't get points for that, but everything is better when you have fun. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to email us at email@example.com. See you at the next meeting!
