Putting posters up around the campus for Openoffice will help, particularly
making sure they are within sight of the inevitable Vista posters :) Rally a
few local students to help do a poster drop which will raise awareness and
give students another option.

I'd suggest puting the following websites on the poster, and also running a
local Software Freedom Day event in September :)
