Dan, the guy behind Higher Ed Chat, is starting-up a Codex of Terrible Higher Ed Marketing.

He writes:

There will be a few categories:

1. “They Paid Someone to Design This?!”
A list of the most poorly designed college websites.

2. “This Video is Supposed to Inspire… Whom?”
A list of the cheesiest and most tasteless college promotional videos. (Currently, Appalachian State holds the title for this one.)

3. “College PR Blunders”
Dumbest moments in college PR. (Such as UNC’s 2,700 congratulatory emails on students’ un-admission.)

Please, nominate your favorites!
You can use the Comments link below, or simply email me.
