Advertising and Publicity

Marketing and Communications serves as the vehicle to publicize special events, awards, newsworthy stories, etc., if the information to be transmitted is relevant to the well-being of Savannah State University. Anyone interested in having an event publicized must submit material in a timely manner and must provide pertinent and substantive information.


The Marketing and Communications staff is responsible for all media purchases that promote and advance the university. This includes advertisements in periodicals, newspapers, high school publications (yearbooks, newspapers, etc.), souvenir programs, business guides and directories, etc.; billboards and other public postings; and radio and television.

Factors taken into consideration when evaluating media purchases solicited by vendors include target audience demographics, circulation, reproduction quality and more. 

Please contact a member of the Marketing and Communications staff to assist with an ad plan, budget and design. 


Marketing and Communications offers a number of outlets for events and stories to receive attention. Submissions for story ideas and announcements can be sent in here
