TOW Week 15: Guest Blogger

April 18, 2010 at 5:11 pm (PRCA 3030, TOW "Topic of the Week")

The following is a description of our blogging topic of the week for my PR and Social Media class:

This week’s topic was inspired by Adam Vincenzini’s Be My Guest month: post something by a guest blogger. Connect with another blogger (it can, but doesn’t have to, be someone in your class) and exchange blog posts for the week. (You don’t have to write something new . . . share your favorite post you’ve written this semester.) In your own blog, make it really clear that the post is written by another person, and link to your guest’s blog.

My guest blogger this week is Allie Schlumper. Below is a blog found directly from Allie’s personal blog. I chose this blog post because will be interesting to all students at Georgia Southern including those who are not but might be experiencing the same sort of thing at their own college or university.

PR Connections- University Proposed Budget Cuts March 3, 2010

Filed under: PR Connections, PRCA 3030 — aschlum1 @ 5:34 pm

For the past couple of days, the proposed budget cuts for Universities in Georgia has been the topic of conversation. Georgia Southern alone has been asked (in the PROPOSED budget cuts) to cut 14.7 million dollars from their budget. This, plus the original 11 million dollars they were asked to cut, comes to about 30% cuts in the money that is provided from the state.

GSU’s President Keel posted a web cast on the GSU website about the budget cuts.

This post is more about rumors and word of mouth, which can be forms of PR. I encourage everyone at GSU and other Universities that are going through the same thing, to really fully understand what is going on before they spread rumors. The cuts have NOT been made yet and there is still something that every single person can do. A website at GSU has been made to inform students, faculty, staff, and the community about the proposed cuts and what they can do to help.

It is important that people are well informed about the situation before they talk about it to others. President Keel and the GSU staff did a great job (from a PR perspective) by posting his video on the site. This shows that they are all concerned about what is going on and it is a very informative video on the situation at hand.
