Class Reflection

I remember the first day of class I walked in there not really knowing what to expert out of it. I just knew that I didn’t have clue about PR at all , I just signed up for the class because I thought it would be interesting and a new experience for me. This semester has literally gone by in a blink of an eye, it has always amazed me how fast time really goes by when you are not focusing on it. I have learned so much in this short time. One thing that i have learned about PR is how to write a press release and fact sheet before taking this class I had no idea what those even were let alone how to write them. I have also learned about PR campaigns and what goes into them for the client. I would have to say that my favorite part about taking this class is getting to have an amazing client like Lonnie for his amazing organization Team River Runner. I have to say that I am deeply saddened though that this semester has gone by so fast and that us as a a group have not gotten to do to much for the Team River Runner due to all the snow that we have had during this semester. I am glad that the semester isn’t quite over yet so we have one more shot to have an event for Team River Runner to get at least some donations for them. I have a new out look on what PR is because of this class and what goes behind a great well organized plan for the clients. It has made me realize that PR is not an easy job to have there are so many different aspects that goes into it.  I am so thankful that I decided to take this class because even though didn’t get to do much for Team River Runner and I am still taking away a lot of knowledge and feel more humbled by it.
