In the Post-Graduate Public Relations Program here at Loyalist College, we welcome international students (like Abhijit Kahlon of India, a current Loyalist PR student seen in the photo above).

We believe international students bring a fresh perspective and approach to our learning environment.

If you're an international student who's interested in studying public relations at Loyalist, please contact Jodie Russett at jrussett@loyalistc.on.ca.

Yeeboo Digital touches down at Loyalist

Post-Graduate Public Relations students enjoyed a lively presentation by Erik Rubadeau and Shannon Pitt of Yeeboo Digital yesterday afternoon.

In keeping with our "Business of PR" theme this week, Erik and Shannon presented to Loyalist PR students about what it takes to start a new communications business from the ground up, how to build key contacts, as well as the "nuts and bolts" of brand building.

Here's just some of the great advice we heard from our Yeeboo Digital presenters:"Try hard, fail fast and then move one." And not to be forgotten, "Learn, certify, show up and repeat."

Thanks for a memorable afternoon, Erik and Shannon! We thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

A big thanks to Pam Sylvan (Belleville's "Downtown Gal") of Pamela Sylvan PR for stopping by our Post-Graduate Public Relations class yesterday to chat with students about owning and operating their own PR consultancy.
Pam's straightforward advice and wise counsel (for career and life alike) was much appreciated by our students.
Hearing from a seasoned professional who has spent her career in the field (ranging from politics to non-profit work), the experience was eye-opening and engaging for us all.
Thanks for taking the time to spend with us, Pam! We truly appreciate your insights.
