Student Clubs



AdFed is a student organization that uses creative and strategic methods to further students’ knowledge of the advertising business.

Members gain hands-on experience similar to what they would experience in a real-world advertising agency. The group is centered around a year-long project where members have to create an entire integrated marketing communications (IMC) plan for a different client each year.

For more information about AdFed, contact Dr. Hwiman Chung at

Broadcasters Club 



The Broadcasters Club is another exciting option for NMSU students interested in television or radio. Broadcasters Club members meet every other week and are joined by industry professionals from the local area and around the world as they share their experiences in journalism and broadcasting. Students raise funds through bake sales and car washes and attend professional conferences both in and out of state. For more information about the Broadcasters Club, contact Mr. Nick Miller at

Dodge & Burn Club



The Dodge & Burn Club at NMSU is open to both journalism majors and non-majors, and offers students the opportunity to gain experience as photojournalists outside the classroom. It emphasizes visual storytelling along with basic photography skills and workshops.

Club members enrolled in advanced photography classes also maintain the NMSU Shooters website as a means of showcasing student work.
