Register and Relax campaign coming to a classroom near you!

Student Services and Public Relations and Marketing have teamed up to encourage current students to register for spring classes with the Register and Relax campaign. The campaign includes a sign at the entrance to Register & Relaxcampus, a display in A. Lincoln Commons, postcards to current students, posters, lapel pins, digital signs and a web banner. Off-campus locations are participating also.

Soon, you will see “Register and Relax” written on classroom blackboards and whiteboards, along with mirrors in bathrooms (all with Facilities Services approval of course!)

We ask that you encourage students to register now for spring classes so they can relax on their holiday break, knowing their spring schedule is in place. Advantages to registering now are a greater selection of classes and a more flexible payment plan.

If students have questions, please refer them to the Enrollment Services hallway in Menard or to ESA staff members, who are eager to help them Register and Relax!
