How It’s Made: Catalogs

The first draft of the SYP catalog will be ready soon, and we here in the office could not be more excited! We sent all of the updates away to our friends at University Marketing and Communications, and they have been doing a great job putting the print catalog together for you all to enjoy.

What’s next for us? A lot of proofreading! We go to great lengths to make sure that every date, description, and picture is just how it needs to be. We are also still in the process of confirming the last few classes—we hope you are ready for a couple of exciting new offerings in 2019.

Once the final proofs are done, the file will be sent to the printer. How many would you guess that we order? If you guessed a few thousand… try again! We get around 20,000 catalogs each year to send all over the country. They are distributed to high schools, students at events, the Regional Admissions Managers, and many of you via direct mail.

We hope to have everything in the mail starting in early December, so keep an eye out!

If you’re like us and are already excited for SYP 2019, you can go ahead and request a catalog. That way, you will be among the first to receive the 2019 listings when they print. If you have any questions, you can always find us at syp@mtu.edu or by phone at 906-487-2219.
