TODAY~ Cupcake Bakesale!

Hey Guys! Don't forget to check out our bakesale that is taking place today - right now, until 3PM at the GSU.
Last night the PRSSA girls worked hard to make you all the most delectable little cupcake delights. Heather, Jacki and Christen made a variety of chocolate, vanilla and even marble cupcakes with a combination of chocolate and vanilla frosting, and Alexandra made her very special Carrot Cake Cupcakes. Those are absolutely fantastic - you must get yours before they are all sold out!
Christen and Jacki pose with the pre-frosted goods
(If you're wondering, yes, that's the washing machine - the kitchen was in the basement!)

There's Heather with our finished products!

Spring Break in NYC!!!


Spring Break in New York City

New York, New York here we come. Why waste spring break in the Caribbean or Florida when you can join Professor Quigley and a bevy of your classmates on the annual COM tour of New York City PR firms and departments? From Monday March 9- Wednesday March 11 a select group of COM public relations students will have the opportunity to meet our alums working at the world’s best firms and departments.

This year we plan to visit a mix of some of the largest PR firms, a mid size firm, a boutique and two in-house departments. Confirmed stops include Ketchum, Burson-Marsteller, MTV Networks, Showtime, Marina Maher Communication and Cohn & Wolfe. More to come! Presenters at the firms range from AAE’s to senior VP’s (last year Ray Kotcher, CEO of Ketchum spoke to our students.). HR representatives will also be at the present.

PRAdvanced Conference

Hi Everyone!

Our PRAdvanced Conference is only 24 days away! Things are coming along great and we hope you will all be able to come!

On that note, PLEASE remember that the cutoff date for the $20.00 reduced registration price is Friday, February 20! If you register later than that, the price jumps to $35.00!

That being said, Jacki Archard will be available at this Thursday's meeting (2/5, 5pm in COM101) and next Thursday's meeting (2/12) to collect money and help fill out registration forms. If you are interested in coming to the conference, please bring your $20 (cash or check made out to Boston University PRSSA) and Jacki will give you a registration form to fill out on the spot - that way, you don't have to worry about passing anything in later or your form/money getting lost in the shuffle.

Remember, our breakout sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis! So, the earlier you register for the conference, the more likely you are to get into the breakout session you want.

If you have any questions, please email Jacki at jackiarchard@gmail.com!

See you Thursday!

Hello there!
My name is Mike. I am a singer/songwriter.
Click to view a list of People I have Played With.

I play all kinds of music - mostly pop rock, but also funk, jazz, jam, and latin. I’ve been playing the piano since I was 2. I can also play the violin pretty well.
I can play the drums, but not very well. That’s why I have a drummer.
