• College/University Brochure Assignment

    • You will research a college/university of your choice and create an informational brochure. You may use any computer program you like, or you may cut and paste information onto a brochure.  As long as it is thoroughly and neatly completed, you will do well.
    • I suggest you email and/or call the school. I will show you how to create an MLA Bibliography entry for these.
    • DO NOT plagiarize. Copying website or any other information put out by the college is plagiarism.  You must summarize/paraphrase the information.
    • When you create the brochure, you must organize it by “flaps” using title and subtitles to guide the reader.
      • First/front flap: appropriate title, a visual, your name, and a teaser (a phrase or sentence that makes people interested in reading the brochure)
      • Second/inside flap: a subtitle, a paragraph and one visual with a caption (one complete sentence explaining visual) – write a paragraph about why you chose this school and if this project changed your mind or not, and why or why not
      • Inside flaps (third, fourth, and fifth flaps) must include:
        • admission requirements (also include information about whether or not they accept AP/IB/AICE credits; Is SAT or ACT preferred?)
        • educational offerings
        • campus life (housing, clubs, etc.)
        • information about location
        • athletics
        • student population
        • cost
        • scholarship/financial aid
        • two to three visuals that represent the information – each visual should have a caption (one complete sentence explaining visual)
      • Sixth/back flap: school’s address and website
    • You may use paragraphs and/or bulleted lists. PLEASE capitalize titles/subtitles correctly!!

    • You must use at least one source so you must include a Bibliography. Turn this in separately with a heading.
    • Lay-out of flat brochure – if you type it and print it, then you will fold it. However, you may choose to create it by hand and cut and paste information onto it.
