Free Camel Ride With Purchase Of Hump Day Donut!

2015-03-23_17-10-46Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike! Guess what day is it Mike? Hump Dayyyyy!

You may have seen the signs- Hump Day Donuts are here!

This event is put on by PRSSA every Wednesday morning in an effort to bring awareness to the club and to raise funds for PR conferences.

“We thought donuts sounded like a great way to make money. Everyone loves donuts and they don’t offer them at ABP… which is ridiculous!” said Tori Halloran.

Then, marketing genius Zach Nissen came up with the Hump Day camel idea.

“My family has 273 camels roaming the land of Camanche” said Nissen. “I thought, hey, if we give each person that buys a donut a ride on a camel, I bet we’d have a lot more sales!”

This marketing plan proved to work. After their first day in Dirlam, they not only ran out of donuts, but they had enough orders to buy a permanent stable on campus for the camel.

“This is awesome! Now we can send our students to conferences all across the nation” said PRSSA adviser Jane Murphy. “However, I’m not sure why they had to sell donuts. People were buying donuts and giving them away just to ride the camel. Maybe charging for camel rides would have been a better option… oh well!”

Donuts cost $1 and are available tomorrow 8:30-10:30am in Dirlam Lounge… aka “Holy Rounds

    Will the donuts have humps? Will the camels be glazed?

      Yes, it costs $1 for one hump donuts, $2 for two humped donuts.
      Camels are glazed at the start of the day, but by evening they usually lick it off of themselves or are licked off by hungry college students.
