SDSU’s Department of Marketing & Communications won two golds and a silver in the 2011 Awards of Excellence competition for the western district of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

The “Aztec for Life” video created for SDSU Month 2010 won a gold award in the category of video public service announcements and commercial spots.

Last year, the video won a silver ADDY in the television category from the San Diego Ad Club. Starring the Aztec Warrior, the video illustrates the rock-solid loyalty of San Diego State University alumni.
