Crisis Simulation Event

Today we had our last PR event of this academic year, a crisis simulation! This in particular was an event I was incredibly excited about due to the unknown scenario we would be given as well as an insight into how a crisis could be managed within the industry. We were given a scenario, and in our groups, we would have to attempt to deal with this crisis as the threat escalated throughout the day.  At the beginning of the day…

My Blogging Truths

Within the last few days I have been feeling a little down about my blog. Don’t get me wrong I am in love with the theme and the posts I write but I can’t help but feel slightly disappointed about the lack of views I have on here or even the amount of followers or likes I get on social media. Sometimes I feel like there is no point in writing if no-one is reading. I admire those bloggers who…

‘Meet The Professionals’ Event

One thing I love about Solent University’s PR degree is the number of events they hold throughout the year. Not too long ago I blogged about the e-campaign in a day event which was a new and exciting experience for me. Last Wednesday I went along to their second event of this academic year, ‘Meet the Professionals’. This event, run by third year students, saw multiple professionals from the industry gather in the University for a chance to network with…

Why The Internet Has No Secrets

Recently the topic of secrecy online has come to mind during my social media scrolling. Over the last few days many lifestyle bloggers that I follow have completed a five things about me challenge. This made me think, nothing online is private anymore. Admittedly, these bloggers have willingly shared this information and the facts are nothing too intimate. However, the question I asked myself was, “why?”. Why did these bloggers feel the need to share this information and why did…

My Very First PR Event

9.00am – Three of us first year students walk into room TS212 early on a Wednesday morning ready fora busy day ahead of us. Those studying PR were gathered to partake in Solent’s ‘E-Campaign In A Day’ where us students were given the task titled ‘Solent Saves The World’. I felt a little intimidated walking into a room full of students from the second and third years of our degree as well as various Masters students. After only 7 weeks of studying the…

What Is PR?

Since I decided to do my degree in public relations, I have been asked multiple times what exactly that is. It is not a very well known concept amongst the general public and in my mind is very hard to explain. Whenever I tell people what degree I am doing at Uni, the main response is “Oh, what does that involve?”. Overtime I have created the generic response of “managing reputations of companies”. I personally know that this does not…

My First Week At Uni

The 16th of September 2017 will forever be a memorable day for me as it was the day that I moved 111 miles away from home to begin a new chapter in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been looking forward to this day pretty much since I got my UCAS offer confirmed. However, there is something about being almost abandoned in a strange city that can be a little daunting. I moved to Southampton to begin my BA…
