Working at CSU

Campus directories: An integral part of CSU life

January 5, 2012

CSU's Creative Services and University Directories have a long-standing relationship creating campus directories and internships for students.

An established partnership

Each year 11,500 copies of the Campus Directory are distributed throughout campus to the CSU community. With the help of University Directories and CSU’s Department of Creative Services, a complete Campus Directory with a consumer guide of local business listings and coupons as well as departmental, faculty, staff and student listings is compiled for convenience and use campus-wide.

A detailed process

Since 2006, the university has submitted all of the introductory pages and the departmental, faculty, staff and student listings to University Directories. University Directories is then responsible for compiling the submitted information with the advertising sections in the back of the book, which is comprised of premium pages for advertising, coupons and an alphabetical consumer guide section containing information for all advertisers. They then print all of the newsprint pages on recycled paper, compile the publication and ship it to CSU, where it is subsequently distributed.

Generating student internships

Every spring, University Directories recruits three to four CSU students for their 12-week Sales and Marketing Internship program to help them attain local advertising. The students are invited to the Sales Foundations Academy, their week-long training program located in Chapel Hill, N.C. “It is the hard work of these students, and the support of the local businesses, that make the directory possible,” said Anna Bowland, the managing director of publications for University Directories.
