Twenty-four die-hard Loyalist PR students turned out to the mock disaster session yesterday, despite the disastrous weather conditions (a well-timed natural crisis in itself).
Those who were able to battle their way through the ice and snow to the college campus, had a first-hand glimpse into a true-to-life mock disaster. The disaster, based on real events, took place in the student commons residence.
While the ski chalet-like atmosphere mellowed us nicely (fireplace and all!), students were also on their toes to face the media during a gruelling round of questioning at a mock news conference.
The results were excellent, and I believe I speak for us all when I say, "a fond farewell to crisis week!"
