“The VCU Brandcenter is more than just advertising.”


Last year, Professor Mark Fenske asked us to write a letter to someone who we are grateful for. I sent a letter to my best friend back at home.

When we reported back to Fenske about what we did and the response we got, he emailed me with this: “No investment you can make of money in the bank pays dividends like the investment of time and effort in friendships. Especially when you’re young.”

This has stuck with me since then and I think about it often. The VCU Brandcenter is more than just advertising. It’s a network beyond the industry, it’s friendships, it’s life lessons.  That’s what makes the Brandcenter different.
