Giving Thanks

As we gear up for Thanksgiving and the holidays, it’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of our daily activities. Our semester at Rider University is winding down (already!). I’m so grateful for the students I’ve had the pleasure and honor to work with this semester. Some were new acquaintances in September, but many were “repeat students.” Both classes (COM106 Writing for the Communication Professions and COM240 Public Relations) have been productive and fun — for me, at least! 🙂

In my writing class, we’re closing the semester by exploring career opportunities. We’re creating LinkedIn profiles and discovering new ways to find jobs in a very difficult job market.

In my public relations class, we’re working on developing public relations strategies and campaigns to raise awareness about thyroid cancer. Yes, it’s a serious topic, but my students seem to be tackling this project with a lot of enthusiasm and creativity, and I’m confident in their abilities to develop ideas that can make a real difference in the “real world.” 😉 I’m looking forward to the presentations of their ideas during the first week of December… I will keep you posted!

I’m thankful for many things right now, including you. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and sharing your ideas and comments with me here — and on Twitter @kathymagrino — throughout the year!
