This can be done through graphic designs such as bingo boards for fundraising; merchandise such as T-shirts, crewnecks, and stickers; marketing through the annual campaign and monthly campaigns; tabling events around campus; and the promotion of PDM in the Pitt Community and Pittsburgh region through radio/TV interviews. They are also the photographers and videographers for day of DM.
