Frosh Week & Events Coordinator



DrugSmart Pharmacy


The DrugSmart Pharmacy in the Queen's ARC needs a student to coordinate frosh week promotion and other marketing events for the drug store. Events could include a presence at the Sidewalk Sale, makeup demonstrations, coupon giveaway blitzes, and focus groups. The goal is to promote awareness of and goodwill towards DrugSmart. The student will also be expected to come up with their own ideas, so have some fun with it!

This is a big project, which will require preparatory work in July and August, with work tapering off into the school year. It is ideal if the student is in Kingston for the summer, though not required. The student must be available in Kingston for all of Frosh week (September 4th onwards). The position concludes in March, and the project fee will be split into several payments.

  • Learn to evaluate and then execute marketing ideas.

  3. Once September hits, execute those plans!
  4. Evaluate your completed events, and plan more events based on this analysis.
