Hey everyone, we’ve officially moved into the fall semester now that Labor Day weekend is over. Doesn’t it feel “real” now? It does to me. When we move from “getting to know you” in my COM 205 class to actually discussing communication theories and research, I know it’s for real now.
This post is a veritable buffet of helpful tips, calendar items, and things you need to know. I hope you find this helpful as you plan your September!
The Public Relations Student Society of America
invites YOU to the first meeting
of the school year on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. in Craig 204 TODAY! Anyone interested in public relations and communication is encouraged to at least stop in and learn more about the many opportunities available with PRSSA. We’ll be talking about our plans for this year’s PRSSA including hands-on PR campaign experience, chair opportunities and the National Conference in San Diego. Plus, there will be snacks!
Hope to see you there! Feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
