Ever Upward Campaign
Every year, thousands of Weber State students overcome obstacles that are in the way of earning their degrees and pursuing their dreams.
Those challenges look different for each person. Some may be the first in their family to pursue a college degree. For others, finances may pose a challenge, or they may be switching career tracks later in life.
The amount of grit and tenacity it takes for a student to make that first step toward pursuing a dream, despite the obstacles — and the dedication it takes to complete that journey — is what we hope to capture in our Ever Upward campaign. Our students’ ability to overcome obstacles will keep them moving, Ever Upward, toward their goals and dreams.
You can use the materials below to help you incorporate that messaging in your own communications to external audiences, while staying true to the campaign’s branding and tone.
If you know someone who captures the spirit of Weber State or have yourself experienced hardships as you've pursued your educational dreams, share your Ever Upward story with us for a chance to win prizes and have your story featured on Weber State’s social media and marketing!

We incorporated colors derived from our secondary color palette to reflect the gorgeous surroundings of our region and complement the outdoor imagery showcased in this campaign. They do not replace our regular brand colors.
We added two additional fonts to our regular brand fonts for this campaign, both of which are ideal for phrases that require emphasis, such as headlines and titles. Contact Marketing & Communications for access to these additional font files.

Voice & Language
To adapt these campaign materials to your specific audience, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
- Know your audience: We have many high school students, parents, alumni, donors, working professionals, etc. Each of those groups might respond to a different writing approach, tone or word choice.
- Avoid jargon: Universities have a lot of internal terms that an outside audience may not understand. Try to be as simple and direct as possible. If you must use terms that you didn’t understand before you became familiar with higher education, explain them.
- Be consistent and professional: Each print piece WSU produces helps reinforce the university’s image. Edit carefully to avoid errors and typos. Use the WSU Writing Style Guide for your publications. It will guide you on proper names for campus buildings, the proper way to format degrees and much more.
- Incorporate campaign language/phrases: There are a variety of phrases/ideas from the campaign you can use in your own products. Review the following script, which was used for the Ever Upward commercial. The language you use in your products does not need to be taken verbatim from the script, but being familiar with the words and using them when appropriate will help keep the university’s tone and messaging consistent. We particularly recommend using the phrases in bold.
