With the Fall semester at Boston University coming to a close, I thought I would give you all an update on the final and continuing projects of the different associations and clubs I am a part of:
HCBU has been a huge success this semester. We are currently a Platinum Chapter but we are working hard to reach the level of a Pink Chapter, the highest ranking of all the chapters across the country. Here are some Facebook Page statistics that show how far we have come from the beginning of September to now:
We have a great PR team of 7 girls who post articles from our newly redesigned website every day of the week. My day is Thursdays, so like Her Campus Boston University on Facebook to keep up with our chapter! Here are some examples of my favorite posts from this semester:
We have also hosted several events this fall including:
Becoming a part of Her Campus has given me a chance to get to know so many great girls, attend fashion shows, makeup tutorials and learn so much from the women who work at HC National and other intelligent and strong women in other fields as well. I look forward to working on the Events and PR team in the spring too!
Being a member of the Boston Chapter of PRSSA has been very helpful and I highly recommend becoming a part of a PRSSA chapter near you if you are interested in PR. Every week, we have a guest speaker come in to talk about their role in the PR world. This semester we have had guests from CONE Communications, Burson-Marstellar, ContentLEAD, MSNBC and CEO Fred Cook of Golin:
And when we arent having amazing guest speakers teach us, we teach each other through workshops that help with proper networking, body language, and presenting techniques:
I did also end up joining the PR Advanced committee. I post articles on the PRAdvanced Facebook page about public relations tactics, blogs, and advice columns. Our actual website is currently undergoing major redesign but I am very excited for our conference in February! Our theme this year is Breaking Barriers. I will make sure to update my blog when our website goes live.
All semester, we have been preparing to showcase our semi-annual fashion show: Shanghai Whispers. I would like to give a big congratulations to all of our designers, models, and FAB members that have made this semesters’ fashion show go off with a bang! The fashion show was a huge success, from our beautiful venue at Hotel Commonwealth, to the small, but important gift bags given to all attendees including goodies from Sephora, Jack Wills, Valentino, Neiman Marcus, and Michael Kors. Here are a few snapshots from our fall fashion show, Shanghai Whispers!
In addition to preparing for the fashion show, FAB held events all semester inlcuding workshops, fashion intern Q & A’s and two events that I was glad to help out with as an LF Stores Fashion Stylist:
I have such a great time representing LF because it really is my favorite place to shop. Our stores try to stay ahead of the trends and keep all types of women chic and stylish from head to toe.
I am excited to announce that The Buzz has launched the fall issue of our magazine. Featured in our magazine are several looks from LF and other popular retailers, celebrity look-alikes, and articles about everything from Instagram for foodies, and testimonials from our amazing study study abroad program, to what you will find when you visit the MFA in Boston.
We also organized a pre-party with local refreshments, entertainment from BU’s a cappella groups, and a photo booth to kick off the magazine launch. The night ended with an afterparty event held at Naga nightclub in Cambridge.
Flip through our Fall Issue: Refined
I am extremely happy with all of the hard work and long hours that have been invested into each of these organizations to create stunning outcomes. I have never been so busy before, but the time was well spent. I will be continuing to work with all of these clubs in the future and make sure to post about our successes. Please comment or message me if you have any questions about how to get involved or start clubs like these at your own school, I would love to help!
