UDC Students Participate in American Idol Viewing Party

Washington, DC - Several University of the District of Columbia students gathered at Madam Tussads Wax Museum January 19th to represent the university at Fox-5's viewing party for the premiere of American Idol.  More than 200 people packed into a room at Madam Tussads to watch the national program, one of Fox-5's most popular programs.  UDC was a sponsor of the Fox-5 event and was able to gain tremendous exposure through promotional advertising and by giving out UDC t-shirts and marketing items during the viewing party.
