— How do you breakthrough the glut of invisible college advertising – all of it speaking to kids in platitudes, like "Reach Your Full Potential!" and "You Are the Future!"? Create an anti-institution, a foil to poke fun at most universities' approach to attracting students, while defining our university, Point Park, as anything but the norm.

Introducing Generic U - a college in the middle of nowhere (think State Schools), where students can get a "good enough" education.

With this unique, admittedly snarky approach, we are speaking to high school kids in their own language and directing them to the antithesis of this mythical institution - Point Park University. —
