Our Students Can Help!

Deadline for Submissions: January 14, 2022

The Graphic & Interactive Design Department at Mount Wachusett Community College is looking for “real-world,” service-learning projects for every student who has enrolled in our capstone Portfolio Prep and Production course.

Service-learning is an experiential, educational project developed as part of our students’ coursework. Our students will use this experience to learn how to work with a client, and for most students, this will be their first opportunity to put their skills to use on a “real-world” design project.

Examples of projects our students worked on last spring include the design of new websites for non-profit organizations, the redesign of an existing website that needed “freshening up”, special event and promotional web ads, and digital marketing campaigns. Additionally, students worked on a large variety of print media projects including posters, brochures, advertisements, logo design and branding, invitations, and much more.

These projects will require time and commitment on the part of the client (you or your designee) to meet online with the student designer and/or via phone, provide all necessary content and information, and work with the student to create achievable goals and deadlines. Before submitting a project proposal, please read the following guidelines:

  • Students will not start these projects until after classes begin on January 18th
  • Projects with a January or early February deadline cannot be accepted.
  • Please describe your project, as detailed as possible. Include your deadline (if applicable), the name, phone number, and email of the person who will be available and can remain in close contact with our student designer.

*Any requests received after January 14 will not be considered.

    “Our school community is delighted with our new website and it is working just as we hoped it would. It is not only highly usable by our own families but it showcases our school for prospective families. It is simply A++! The partnership with MWCC's GID program far exceeded our expectations and provided an excellent opportunity for those students to work with a real client! I cannot say enough about the total experience.”
