Case Study

University of South Carolina

The University of South Carolina, an athletic powerhouse in the SEC, wanted to grow its academic reputation. With excellent programs ranging from aerospace to music and the top- ranked Darla Moore School of Business, the university was poised to stand out as an academic research institution. In 2011, USC rolled out its first integrated marketing campaign that took the university’s messaging to different audiences in different ways under the “No Limits” creative campaign. Introduced to encourage prospective students, current students and alumni to look deeper at USC and to explore its wide-range of offerings, the plan emphasized the role of Gamecocks as leaders in an economically-challenged state.  No Limits was built on the five-year Integrated Marketing Communications plan introduced in 2011. Both the plan and the campaign were the first institution-wide marketing effort for the University.
