Tuesday, April 6, 2021 - 5:00pm

Jacht Agency is proud to announce its crew for fall 2021. The crew is composed of both new and returning student “Jachters” from diverse backgrounds and disciplines at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Jacht is UNL’s student-run advertising and public relations agency through the College of Journalism and Mass Communications. Services at Jacht include: brand strategy, graphic design, photography and videography, social content creation and strategy, and public relations. Jacht provides students with real-world experience that extends beyond classroom instruction by giving students opportunities to work in a real advertising agency setting.

“Jacht provides students with the chance to experience a real-world agency with paying clients,” Griffin said. “They get to work in teams to produce meaningful work and solve creative challenges, which sets them apart and gives them an advantage when they enter the industry after college.” 

Students use their skills and knowledge to work with real clients such as Husker Dialogues, Mobile Me & You and Nebraska Collegiate Prevention Alliance.
