I'm Baaack
I had a wonderful summer relaxing, being with my friends, and lifeguarding. Now I'm back at school, and I just got settled. I am taking a PR research class, a Broadcast Journalism class, and a Marketing class along with some non-major classes.

I like my PR class, it is interesting to see just how much goes behind a campaign. It makes me think that we should have this class first not the one I took, because I basically did very little research besides niching the audience. We have a big research project due at the end of the year. I was surprised that I like my Broadcast class. I thought it would be about being a news reportor on camera. Instead we're doing broadcast writing, which will be important to learn, and a video package at the end. Finally, I'm taking a Marketing class, which is unfortunatly on the same day as my PR research class. I read basically the same stuff for both classes and we talk about the same stuff given different names in both classes. And then of course is the jabs each class takes at the other class. Like the rest of my major classes there is a big project due at the end similar to what I did for my PR class last year.

Besides classes I am really excited to be doing PR for the Italian club I am in, C.I.A.O. I have an offical position on the e-board as "Secretary of Public Relations." First, I planned and make decisions with the president and vice president for this semester. Then I designed a recipe book to sell at the Italian Fest this Sunday on campus. I also made flyers to pass out and hang around campus. I keep helping with overall decisions within all the e-board positions. I greeted and recruited students at the first annual Street Fair, as well as the activities fair. Also, I've redesigned our Facebook group to be more informative. Eventually I will be sending messages and inviting people to events through there. I still have to setup a group on the Hofstra Portal, which will inform everyone at Hofstra of our events. I can't wait for the 24th when we go to the San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy!!

The last major thing I am working on is getting an internship for the summer. I am trying to meet with my teacher from last year, Professor Frisina, to talk about travel/book/movie PR internships as well as internships abroad. I also have to meet with the director of the EPA and IES programs, (study abroad internships), to get more detail about where I could go to do PR.

I have a busy semster ahead of me but it should be fun.
