Flyer catches attention on campusBy Jessica Mellet
Public Relations students took the initiative to create a campaign focused on increasing pre-registration rates for freshmen.
The flyer reads “The new BraveWeb: so easy…even a UNCP Student Can Do It!”
Get students’ attention
The flyer was meant to get the attention of students and the reaction that it got totally caught us by surprise, said senior Phillip Aldridge who is a group member of the campaign.
“If the intent was to get attention, it did that, but in a very negative way,” said Stratil.
Aldridge said that when the group heard the reaction of some of the students, the group’s reaction was “you’ve got to be kidding,” because we never meant to offend anyone.
“All in all I am actually glad that it got the attention it did.
Part of a course
The Public Relations Campaigns course is a requirement for students in the Mass Communication Department in the Public Relations track.
