Business college seeks new slogan

The B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration has launched a slogan competition challenging students, faculty and staff members at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette to pitch slogans that could be used to market the college and its programs.

“This competition allows the creativity of our students, faculty and staff across the UL-Lafayette campus to capture the spirit of the remarkable programs Moody College of Business offers,” Dean Joby John said in a news release.

John will serve on the selection committee that will determine the winners. Potential prizes include a total of $1,500 in retail gift certificates to Best Buy, with $500 for first place.

The deadline for online slogan submissions is 6 p.m. Sept. 17.
