Marketing Advisory Board

Did you know 100% of fall 2018 MAB members said they'd recommend this opportunity to a friend? 

The Marketing Advisory Board (MAB) is a group of students who play a critical role in assessing Waterloo Residences marketing strategies, communications and campaigns. We rely on your input to provide suggestions, feedback and ideas to better connect with current and future UWaterloo students.

Applications for the winter 2019 Marketing Advisory Board are now open.
