Free Coffee Ad in Students’ Powerpoint Slides

Coffee Company in the Netherlands is giving away free coffee to students who sneak in a branded slide into their homework PowerPoint decks.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. I think this will just attract more students to advertise the slide in their powerpoints because we all know how college students feel about free anything- it’s pretty much their entire collegiate goal to collect as many freebies as possible whether it be t-shirts, beer or body lice. And how do their professors feel about this slide? Will they get docked points? In a Communications (or related) class, I could see this as completely acceptable, however, I can’t see this flying with “Prof. No-Fun” in a Microbiology class. I would be very interested to hear their point-of-view.
