Re: U of T Computer Science Student Union

Would somebody on the marketing list like to be our university contact and start with Toronto? You can then send Behdad if they have an event we can participate in.

I also know several other professors that were looking for GNOME speakers to come attend their classes. I think having a university liaison would help the GNOME project make sure we reach out to these folks.

Any interest? Feel free to respond here or to me privately.

Eh, indeed I was approached with the original request for marketing materials and I think I sent them towards Stormy and the list.  I'd be happy to attend campus events, sure.

Behdad lives in Toronto.  Ryan lives *near* Toronto.  I have included
both individuals in this email.  There may be other GNOME ethusiasts
who live in Toronto.

Just my two cents.

Anybody in the Toronto area want to check this out? (I'm thinking it would
make more sense to attend than to just give them stuff to hand out.)

Hi Stormy Peters,

I am a representative of the Computer Science Student Union at the
University of Toronto. The CSSU is responsible for representing the greater
interests of the computer science student body at the University of Toronto.
As such we at the CSSU would like to inquire about your interest in
providing promotional materials for your company at a CSSU student event.
These promotional materials would be items, such as branded pens, stickers,
disks with trial/opensource versions of software, that can be used to create
awareness of your company within the student populace. We would then
distribute these items at student events, such as first year orientation, to
the students in attendance.

 We have found that companies in the past who have provided us with these
kinds of materials have profited greatly from the level of attention they
receive from the students in a manner they may not have been able to receive
otherwise. Many companies have commented on how difficult it can be to
create a presence at the university due to the restricitions imposed and
processing normally required by the university in order to distribute
materials on campus, but as an organization of our nature we are able to
bypass most of these difficulties.

If you are interested in providing your own promotional materials at a CSSU
student event or require more details please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Rohan Chandra
External Liaison
