The American Advertising Federation at UCSD (Adwave) provides an educational and professional platform for students to develop their abilities for an advertising and/or marketing career. We aim to inspire and bring together the brightest and most creative minds at UCSD. 

We are a team of talented individuals that have come together to develop ourselves professionally for the fields of marketing, advertising, and business consulting. We involve ourselves in competitions, projects, and events to hone our skills and develop a thriving marketing and advertising community on the UC San Diego campus. 

We participate annually in the National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC). Each year a corporate sponsor challenges us with problems their brand is actually facing and we develop solutions as a real-world ad agency would - conducting research, identifying opportunities and developing an ad campaign for the brand.
