Notre Dame, IN (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Notre Dame FCU employees were spotted wearing the very popular Grumpy Cat Internet meme during Friday’s Student Return activities. Poking fun at big banks, the Grumpy Cat meme’s message read, “I went to a bank once. It was awful.” The back of the t-shirt read, “Be grumpy no more”. Notre Dame FCU’s t-shirt design touches on the unbank approach to conducting finances, and opens the door for Notre Dame FCU employees to educate younger members about the difference between credit unions and banks.
Chief of Marketing at Notre Dame Federal Credit Union, Deidre Davis, commented, “In many instances, the credit union finds that Notre Dame FCU is the first financial institution to which incoming students are exposed. We recognize what a wonderful opportunity it is for Notre Dame FCU employees to relate to this younger generation each year during Student Return Week, and our t-shirts were designed to portray Notre Dame FCU as both approachable and relatable. If anything, the t-shirt designs act as an icebreaker and help start conversations about the credit union’s personalized service and vast array of products. Our younger members are the future of the credit union. Ultimately, we hope that all of the effort and energy we’ve put into Student Return Week strengthens our relationship with the students, thereby increasing the likelihood of retaining these members after they graduate.”
