Support

Taste of StMU is only made possible with the help of generous supporters. Please continue to encourage our students who want to learn graphic design and multimedia by considering a donation of time, talent and/or treasure. We are grateful to Henry’s Puffy Tacos for sponsoring our magazine launch in 2017 and Fratello’s Deli for providing us with gift cards.

Professional Judges Committee

Graphic designers and those working in the creative field of mass media are needed to volunteer as mentors to the graphic design class (computer lab enrollment is limited to 10 students). Their professional expertise is needed to give feedback and encouragement to aspiring graphic designers. Judges are periodically sent digital drafts of the students’ ads, covers and magazine designs during the semester for anonymous “real world” critiques.  They are honored guests at the magazine launch party where the student winner of the “Professionals’ Choice” award is announced.

Internship and Job Opportunities

Local businesses may help support Taste of StMU by offering internships or career-entry level positions at their companies. Students have learned the basic skills of graphic design and/or multimedia and can provide creative services to aid in the company’s marketing, advertising, public relations and mass communications efforts.

Scholarships

Organizers of Taste of StMU would like to establish a scholarship fund for the winners of the student magazine to aid in offsetting expenses incurred while taking the graphic design course (lab fees, textbooks, supplies, etc.). Prizes will be awarded during the annual magazine launch party. Donations in any amount are welcome.

Sponsors

Although Taste of StMU is non-profit, donations are still needed to help defray the costs of this site’s domain and hosting fees, magazine launch party supplies, marketing materials, printing and other necessary operations costs.  Alumni, university departments, local businesses and individual donors are welcome to contribute money or items specifically for Taste of StMU. As an appreciation for their generosity as sponsors, they are invited to attend the magazine launch party and witness the impact of their support.  Sponsors are also recognized for supporting the educational endeavors of Taste of StMU by being listed in the widgets sidebar.
