Assume you are a student working part time for FitnessPLUS, a new health and fitness club on Michigan Avenue directly across from Kanley Track near WMU. You have been asked to write a message to students encouraging them to visit the FitnessPLUS facility for an open house and demonstration. The open house will be held on Saturday, [you pick the date], 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There will be food, refreshments and door prize drawings, including a drawing for a free one-year membership. (Do not include any other incentives in your message). Use your imagination to fill in the details about the club, its features, normal hours of operation, pricing, website, etc.
Your task: Craft your message with sufficient detail, and make up additional details as necessary. Remember, your goal is to inform students about the open house; you’re not trying to sell them anything or persuade anyone to join at this point, you’re simply providing information.
Audience: This problem has a specific audience. Determine if your audience (all WMU students) is internal or external, and then format your message appropriately. If you’re writing a memo, simply address it to “All WMU Students” in the memo header. If you’re writing a letter, just address it to an individual and use the university’s address:
A. Juan Student
1903 W Michigan Ave
Kalamazoo, MI 49008-5412 USA
