SBC Orlando Students Deliver Powerful Message for National Women’s History Month 1Retail Merchandise Management students from the Orlando campus of Sanford-Brown College were recently challenged to design, create and install a selling environment constructed from paper, using no more than two colors. The purpose of the display was to promote a cause, and act as an educational tool to passers-by.

The group of four students had a 10-day project turnaround time from start to completion. A display space at the SBC Orlando campus was selected by the group, and they voted to use the theme of National Women’s History Month. The title of the display was #BREAKTHENORM. Its aim was to inspire female students, and celebrate the achievements of the female population on campus.

The focal point of the display was an elevated purple female mannequin, wearing a gown constructed from paper, printed with empowering quotes from leading business women, entrepreneurs and female influencers.

The back wall of the display was decorated with wallpaper containing images of SBC Orlando female students, faculty and staff holding signs that celebrated their own “Female Firsts.”

In addition, the Retail Merchandise Management students worked with Digital Media Production students to film student women talking about their achievements and how it feels to #BREAKTHENORM. The video played on campus throughout the month of March.
