About & Mission

AdInk is the advertising club at Northwest Missouri State University, in Maryville, Missouri.

We provide networking opportunities to students, encourage increased exposure to the advertising process, and offer educational events that expand the student perception of how to communicate to consumers. We explore consumer communication by opening the door for students to access the professional world.

We organize two big events each year: In the fall, we organize a bus to take students to the AAF-KC’s annual student Career Day; in the Spring, we organize our own agency tour, called Off Broadway (because many of the agencies are on or off downtown KC’s main road, Broadway!).

There are no membership fees: AdInk is organized by a small group of volunteers who manage our events and speakers. Event expenses are covered by the event fees associated with our bigger trips; most activities are free.

AdInk’s mission is to make the vast world of consumer communication field accessible for students. We provide networking opportunities to students, encourage increased exposure to the advertising process, and offer educational events that expand the student perception of how to communicate to consumers.
