XAVIER ON DISPLAY AT
N.O. INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT


A new display ad at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport highlights Xavier University's unique history & mission, as well as the extraordinary successes of its students. The five-foot (62”w X 43” h) backlit display ad was designed by the Office of University & Media Relations as part of a marketing campaign designed to increase the university's visibility and to encourage more Admissions applicants. It was installed in May along the Southwest Airlines concourse B, where it can be seen daily by thousands of travelers as they arrive and depart from the Big Easy. Alumni and friends of Xavier are encouraged to look for the display ad whenever they are flying into or out of New Orleans.
