"How to Fly" (with Ryan Porter)

"Stop listening to people who are telling you to be realistic and decide for yourself what's real." ~ Ryan Porter

I came across a great link today (click photo above) featuring Ryan Porter. We're actually in the process of booking him to visit Loyalist next year.

You can learn more about Ryan by clicking here. Peace, all.

Sign of the times...

I was driving through Prince Edward County this past weekend when I came across this signpost, featuring Liz Biz, the business of one of our past grads, Lizanne Donelly.

It's always such a great feeling to see our students taking their own direction with the skills they learn here in Loyalist PR.

Congratulations on your successful communications consulting business, Lizanne!

Loyalist PR Program doubles for fall 2010!

It's going to be double the fun this year for the Post-Graduate Public Relations Program!

We've received official word that we'll be expanding to two sections for the fall of 2010.

The good news is this means there is STILL SPACE in the Post-Graduate Public Relations Program.

To register, simply go to the Ontario Colleges web site ($95 fee to apply) or, if you are already a Loyalist student, see Kaley Gale in the Registrar's Office (no fee to apply).

We recommend that you apply soon if interested in the Loyalist PR program to avoid disappointment.

If you have any questions about the program, please don't hesitate to contact Professor Kerry Ramsay, Program Co-ordinator at kramsay@loyalistc.on.ca.

Thanks, and we hope to see you in September 2010!
