How we serve you:

Marketing and Communication is a team of dedicated staff and student workers who are excited to serve the campus. We love AU! Last year alone, more than 1,600 projects were completed in our office. Because many of the jobs that we process are recurring, please keep all final PDFs of your jobs on file internally, so that they are easier to retrieve and process in the future. is our internal project management system and how we collect, store and keep up with jobs. It is also how we will communicate your job to you. Once a job is submitted, it is automatically uploaded into Monday. Once you have submitted a request, you will receive a confirmation email. When a proof is ready for review or your order is ready to be picked up, we will notify you through Monday and it will appear as an email in your inbox.  If you reply to this email, the information will be uploaded into your job in Monday. 

Help us help you. Always complete the appropriate form for your job. This allows our entire team to view your request, which will allow it to be completed faster. It also minimizes the questions we might have while processing your job, which streamlines the process and makes us as efficient as possible.
