I heartily second this.  I attended PLU in Tacoma, WA and we managed
to snag one of th bookstore display windows at the start of every 
semester.  Students had to wait in line to buy books and had plenty 
time to study the items therein.  

I'd also recommend having a weekly lunch or dinner in either the 
commons or coffee shop (or one of each, or alternate weeks)
and poster for it if you can.  Sometimes with demos, although it 
*looks* interesting, it's not the hook that talking to someone with
enthusiasm and passion can be.
