JWU is Advertising with WEEI During Red Sox Broadcasts

JWU Admissions and the College of Online Education is collaborating on a project to do radio advertising during Boston Red Sox broadcasts throughout the 2018 season.

It’s a combination of traditional radio ads and sponsorship opportunities (i.e. “tonight’s starting line-up brought to you by…”). Currently, the ads that are airing now are more general but as the season progresses, the ads will switch out and speak to more specific colleges and programs. This is one of the many first steps JWU is using its new brand approach. Take a listen!

Paving the Way for the Next JWU Generation

WHAT: Year End Campaign, JWU Fund. Funds raised will go to scholarships, JWU’s innovative programming, and where it is needed most. This year, the JWU Fund is doing a multi-channeled campaign with a goal of increasing engagement, donations and donor retention from our more than 109,000 alumni as well as friends of JWU. 

WHEN: From NOW until June 30, 2018



An anonymous donor has pledged an additional $10,000 to the university if 250 individuals donate by the end of June. Please spread the word.

Thank you for paying it forward to our next generation of students. You have more power than you think.
