Stephen F. Austin State University’s Jacks Council on Family Relations and Residence Hall Association recently donated approximately 1,000 books to Greater East Texas Community Action Program Head Start and Early Head Start.

During the past few weeks, the two organizations planned the book drive on campus and throughout the Nacogdoches community and collected books to benefit area children in the GETCAP program.

Representatives from GETCAP Head Start and Early Head Start visited campus Wednesday, April 27, to collect the books. Dian Wise, GETCAP Head Start education coordinator, was overwhelmed and excited to receive them.

“We are very thankful,” Wise said. “We really appreciate the collaboration and the good partnership we have with SFA. These books will make a huge difference for the children involved.”

SFA child development and family living senior and JCFR president Adrian Gutierrez also was on hand to help distribute the books.

“We are always looking for service opportunities, and this book drive was amazing. It has really grown a lot since last year,” Gutierrez said. “Helping out and working with children are my passions, so I’m very excited the children will get these books to read, and it is really going to impact them in the long run. I’m excited to see where this program goes in the future.”

SFA’s online public administration master’s degree program ranked third best in the nation by GradSchoolHub.com

Stephen F. Austin State University’s online Master of Public Administration was ranked third out of the top 30 programs offered nationally based on its affordability and recognition, according to a recent release by GradSchoolHub.com.

“SFA as a regional university has programs that tend to provide the academic needs of the people, institutions and organizations in the region,” said Dr. Kwame Antwi-Boasiako, SFA professor and chair of the Department of Government. “This recognition affirms the quality of the public administration program and its affordability.”

GradSchoolHub.com examined 84 schools accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration that offer online master’s degrees in public administration or public affairs. From this pool of schools, the website selected programs that had earned rankings from major publications, including Forbes magazine, The Princeton Review, and U.S. News and World Report, among others.

“Stephen F. Austin State University offers an affordable online master’s degree in public administration that is designed to help prepare graduates for leadership and management roles in the public sector,” according to GradSchoolHub.com. “The institution is ranked with U.S. News and World Report as the 87th best regional university in the West and the 35th top public school.”

The online public administration master’s degree program has been offered at SFA since 1999. In that time, the program has moved from a regional epicenter with in-class instruction to serving students statewide through completely online course offerings.

“The online public administration master’s program meets the needs of professionals interested in enhanced public-sector careers and recent graduates interested in public-service careers,” said Antwi-Boasiako. “The program combines academic expertise with ‘real world’ experiences to provide students with outstanding opportunities to connect knowledge with practice. Our students can work at their own pace while gaining the experience and professional credentials necessary to become responsible and effective managers and leaders.”

SFA mass communication, art and music students create ad campaign for Snapple

Stephen F. Austin State University mass communication, art and music students collaborated during the course of several months to produce an advertising campaign for Dr. Pepper’s Snapple. Mass communication students who traveled to Lubbock to present the campaign during the National Student Advertising Competition include, front row, from left, Dayna Kelley, Kendra Byrd, Kristelh Delcid and Nadia Oulahna; and, back row, James Burns.

Classes across the Stephen F. Austin State University campus collaborated during the course of several months to produce an entry for the National Student Advertising Competition, which took place this month.

Sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, the annual program challenges college students to create an integrated marketing campaign for a specific product, service or brand.

“My class, Advanced Advertising II, worked on the campaign all semester,” said SFA student Dayna Kelley of Richmond. “We began doing research on Snapple as well as Snapple competitors almost immediately into the semester. It was important for us to begin early so we could get to know Snapple as a brand and also to find out what types of people purchased Snapple and why they chose Snapple over other juice/tea drinks.

“Along with our own research, Snapple provided us with a packet that entailed what they were looking for us to do as well as some research they previously did,” she added. “Once we began to put together our campaign, the School of Art became very involved and began to design our PowerPoint and that really brought our campaign to life.”

Country, pop, salsa and hip-hop jingles, a step dance routine and an innovative vending/recycling machine were part of SFA’s entry in NSAC District 10. The competition took place Thursday through Saturday, April 14-16, in Lubbock.

District 10 is the largest American Advertising Federation’s district with 17 top-tier universities in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.

“It definitely was not what I expected,” said SFA student Nadia Oulahna of Houston. “We had to use microphones and present in front of not only judges but a crowd. It was kind of intimidating for many of my peers. I am a radio/TV major, so naturally I wasn’t nervous because I am used to speaking in front of an audience. It kind of blew us away because we thought it would just be us and the judges and maybe a few other people, but it was a bunch of other schools that were watching us give the presentation as well.”

Several SFA colleges collaborated to create the ad campaign. Mass communication classes researched the product and wrote the jingle while SFA professor of graphic design Peter Andrew’s advertising design students in the School of Art created the layout and 27-page book on the campaign.

Dr. Kevin Kelleher, SFA assistant professor of music and director of the sound recording technology program, worked with SFA mass communication professor Dr. Linda Bond and her students to decide on a beat and chords for the music. This is the second time the SRT students have worked with mass communication. The first collaboration resulted in jingles for Timber Falls Water Park in Nacogdoches.

Bond traveled with 20 mass communication students to Lubbock to present SFA’s campaign in the annual competition.

“The drive to Lubbock was long!” Kelley said. “However, it worked in our favor. Dr. Bond had the presenters practice every 100 miles. By the time we arrived, we were starting to feel extremely comfortable with our presentation.

“Once at the hotel it was noticed exactly how large this competition was. Everywhere you looked there was a different group of dressed-up students preparing themselves. I think a lot of us were beginning to really feel the pressure. We knew it was up to us to present the work of three academic areas at SFA.”

Caroline French from national Snapple headquarters said she loved SFA’s jingles and noted the “very clever use of jingles in order to bring the segment to life.”

“The SFA team did a great job,” said competition judge Simon El Hage, SVP director of strategic planning at Casanova Pendrill, a California-based advertising agency. “The campaign was exciting, interesting, clever and fun. Congratulations on your very strong presentation!”

SFA students will present their Snapple campaign at 5 p.m. Monday, May 2, at the Cole Art Center in downtown Nacogdoches. The event is free and the public is invited to attend.
