In Awards and Achievements, School of Communications

Recognition after recognition, the BYU AdLab keeps taking the prize 

During any given fall or winter semester, the AdLab will win award after award and even in a spring term, it’s no different. 

The School of Communications advertising students continue to thrive with the following awards announced during Spring 2021: 

The AdLab was ranked the #1 school of 2021 by the One Club School of the Year award. They were ranked the #2 school in 2018, 2019 and 2020. 

“This is a huge accomplishment for the program and in a really difficult year with the pandemic, to be able to produce this many award winning projects, we have seen tremendous blessings!” said professor Jeff Sheets.
