We are 360 Communications and we represent Smoking Words
It has been an exciting opening week here at 360Communications. We have been assigned to run the public relations campaign for the nonprofit organization Smoking Words, an organization fighting for Louisiana State University to be a tobacco-free campus. Smoking Words was founded at LSU in 2000 by mass communication professor Judith Sylvester. We have meetings set up and are excited to get the ball rolling on this campaign.
Dr. Sylvester envisions Smoking Words to be a student-run organization; that will be one of our bigger challenges. Our first goal will be to spread the word amongst students about the organization itself and also ways to get involved. We plan on initially implementing a high profile student-friendly campaign on LSU’s campus to create some buzz about Smoking Words. Once we meet our student involvement goals, we will then spread the cause beyond LSU.
We consider the already monumental effort behind creating smoke free campuses an advantage to us. There are over one thousand of non-smoking campuses in the United States today. Seven of which are in Louisiana which puts LSU behind the curve. It is our duty to put this issue in the forefront of students’ minds. It is great to be working for an organization that has the best interest of everyone at LSU at heart. The goal is to create a healthier campus and student body for everyone. It is an honor to be commandeering the evolution of a richer and healthier campus and student body at LSU. Keep checking our blog for more updates throughout the campaign, you will definitely want to stay in the loop with Smoking Words. You should also like us on Facebook to get updates from our campaign as we go.
We promise to provide plenty of content for you all once the campaign gains more steam. Next week we are beginning the research process which will surely provides us with a plethora of blog-able materials. Have a great weekend everybody, from everyone at 360Communications and Smoking Words.
