TOW 1 My Dearest First Year Students by Naida Lindberg
I loved reading this and completely agree with your tips. College is so much more than just homework and classes…it’s a whole new learning experience from meeting new people to growing deeper in your relationship with God. I know for me, I would be in a completely different place right now if I hadn’t come to college. I loved your third tip, because I’ve found such encouragement and love from all of my professors at SEU, and that has been such a blessing to me.
I think we definitely spend a huge part of our lives on the internet whether that is through our computer or mobile devices because everything has gone mobile now. I can do my homework, connect with family on the other side of the country, listen to my favorite music on Pandora and order a pizza all at the same time. I think it definitely has taken away from spending time with family and friends. All too often I’ll look around my family room at home and see each of my family members online in some way or another.
Life has changed, and we rely on the internet for a lot of things. We just have to be careful to not let it take away from social interaction with others and our spiritual lives..although that has become mobile too with the Youversion app.

Nuh-Uh! McD’s Would Never Deceive Me! What!?! by Isa Ramos

Interview with PR Professional Casey Taylor by Kate Elizabeth
I appreciated some of his advice, especially “nothing is what it seems. stay grounded in reality.” This is especially important to remember in the PR world.
Let’s just hope they learn from their “caught” mistake and don’t do this again. I would hate to see such a wonderful organization loose support because of bad judgment.
A Man for the Job by Paul Hamilton
I also didn’t know much about Herman Cain before reading your blog post. I appreciate the background you gave on him and sharing your personal opinion. I didn’t even know he was running for President (my mom’s a huge Ron Paul fan and that’s all she talks about) but I’ll be sure to look more into his politics and views.

Bring on the Camels by Naida Lindberg
Can I just say that I love how you post pictures of camels? I’m not too sure how they relate to PR..but they’re pretty cool to look at. You should ride one!!! I did in Israel and it was a neat experience..although they seem pretty mean! I thought for sure the one I was riding was going to turn around and bite my toes off.

My Ultimate 10 by Kate Higdon
Loved reading your list of top 10! I can relate to many of these, but my favorite was your Hashtag one. I had no idea what they were, and I was even using twitter for a few months before I used my first one! Learned what they were in our PR Class–special thanks to Professor Nixon for enlightening me on them!
Coca-Cola and Music by Jessi Ellerbe
This was a really cool video–thanks for sharing! I agree that Coke did a great job of merging music in with the teen’s and their love of the popular drink. I think it also points at how Coke unites the world, in a way. They showed many different teens in the film, and Coke is quite a worldwide company! I’ve traveled to 12 different countries and in each one, Coke was always easy to find!
(Although..I must admit, I prefer Pepsi over Coke!)
