A student-run, faculty mentored marketing & consulting agency
The Oiler 10 is a student-run, faculty-mentored marketing and consulting agency, where students gain authentic hands-on experience by providing support and solutions to real businesses and organizations. The group also has opportunities to travel and learn from agencies and businesses around the country.
Since the agency functions as a real business, the students peer evaluate each other's performance, assess potential candidates, and make decisions as to who is hired into the group. Students can earn credit hours for participating in the group or participate in the group as an extracurricular activity. Depending on a student's performance with the agency and their personal commitment to the group, they can spend anywhere between a semester to three years in the group.
The team provides a variety of services within the categories of:
- Social media management
Since starting in 2016, the group has worked with a variety of businesses across the United States, which include the areas like:

"Every single day, the Oiler10 gave me the opportunity to work with external businesses to find my passion points, expand my skillsets, add value to business and customers, and to ultimately learn the skills you can't learn in a classroom. Every single day, the Oiler10 allowed me to build relationships with remarkable, high-energy people; the kind that inspired me to push on. As I developed personally and professionally, opportunities started coming and to be honest, some are still coming."Kelsey Koesters '18

"The culture and growth opportunities are what makes The Oiler 10 special. It is a group of ambitious college students that are determined to get the most value they can out of their education and set themselves up for meaningful lives and productive careers upon graduation. When you place 10+ of these like-minded students in a group, it creates a culture that is absolutely remarkable to be a part of. You can't help but want to put forth your best effort and ensure you are squeezing all you can out of each day. It goes beyond just 'doing work' as well, it's about having fun as a group and loving the work you do. The personal and professional growth is a byproduct of the culture; you are put in a position to learn more about your career field of interest and are exposed to things that help you grow as an individual."
