Read More, Spend Less

GUEST BLOGGER: McKenzie Duquaine


Reading is the ultimate underrated pastime. Weeks, months or even years can pass by and you don’t even realize that you haven’t read a book. Then, when you go to pick out a book, you realize you don’t want to spend more than $10 on something you may only use once. So, here are 5 tips and tricks for saving some money on books!

Make Promo Products Work For You

College Hill Marketing 2019 - Promo Infographic 2

Make promo products go to work for you. It's one of the easiest, fastest and most hands-off ways to advertise your company in the long term.

Why Promo?

- Flyers get thrown in the trash. Business cards pile up. Promo products - those people use. A promo product is basically any piece of merchandise with your company or brand name, logo, slogan, design or messaging on it. 

- As seen in the infographic above, there's an incredible return on investment with promo products. We produce them affordably so you can blanket your town with your name. These make great client gifts, giveaways, leave-behinds, mailers and more - whether you're looking for small items like USB drives or hand sanitizers, mid-sized items like umbrellas or drinkware or large scale displays like tradeshow panels, we can help you advertise your business in the most cost-effective, long term way possible.

- The average billboard is tremendously expensive and the average digital ad, while affordable, is seen only once or twice. Your promo products are seen all the time - for months or even years!

- Not only do the people that receive your promo products see them all the time, reinforcing your company name, but the people around them see them all the time, too. Every time that pen comes out at a meeting or someone passes by a desk calendar or someone is behind you with your company umbrella - people remember your name.

Not Just Four Years, For Life



How many times has a boomer reminded you that college will be the best four years of your life? My guess is about seven times a day for the last decade. Here’s the thing, though – they’re actually not wrong about this one. College has been the most fun I’ve ever had in my life – over 21 years! Here’s why: I joined student organizations that made my time here more than worthwhile.

Healthy Eating: College Edition


Healthy eating is likely a goal for every college student, but let’s be real: it’s not what every college student is actually doing.

Junk food is cheaper, easier and faster. It’s also just more accessible. I can’t even name the number of times I’ve come home from a long day on campus just to throw in some top ramen for the 12th night in a row. It’s a matter of convenience, really.

Well, since it’s still the start of a new year, I’m sure we’ve all heard (and probably already failed) the new year resolutions that all tend to revolve around eating healthy and working out.

I know they’ve probably already failed because, well, that was me and… hello, I had a whole pizza last night. Here’s the thing, though. You don’t have to embark on some crazy crash diet that asks you to cut out everything fun in life in order to eat healthy.

College Winter Term Blues Got You Down? Try Some Self Love.


The end of winter break often means the end of relaxation - savoring the holidays and all those home-cooked meals. It’s always a bit of a slap in the face to get back into the real world, especially when you're coming back to winter quarter.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, winter for college students tends to mean the least amount of fun you’ll have at school each year. The weather gets a little sad, people are less inclined to go out and school gets tougher because people sign up for harder classes.


As a senior at the University of Oregon, I’ve learned that in order to survive winter quarter, you absolutely have to take mental health days.
