In a combined effort from the Career Center, Alumni Relations, and the Public Relations Student Society of America Seton Hall Chapter, the Points of PRide Annual Event will be held April 3 at 7 p.m. in the Jubilee Hall Atrium at Seton Hall University.
Points of PRide (formerly known as ROPE) is a networking event held to recognize professionals in the Public Relations industry. Industry professionals, Seton Hall Alumni, and current students are all welcome for a night of networking, celebration, and fun. “Points of PRide is a very important event to us at Seton Hall,” says Professor Kristen Koehler of the Public Relations Department, “Not only is it an amazing networking opportunity, but we get to celebrate leaders in our industry that are an inspiration to the students following in their footsteps.”
During the event, Seton Hall’s Bateman team will present their campaign to those in attendance. Every year, the PRSSA Bateman Case Study Competition challenges a select group of seniors from participating universities to create a campaign for a universal client. This year, competitors are working to challenge the way the public thinks and talks about mental health. The Seton Hall team has been working on a campaign to promote these values all semester, which included an informative discussion panel on mental health and stigma surrounding the issue.
In the spirit of networking, resume books will be provided for all employers and industry professionals interested. Resumes collected from participating students will be put on a number of USB flash drives and then made available to potential employers. If you are a student interested in submitting your resume for the event, send us a direct message on Instagram or Twitter, or tweet at us using #PointsofPRide.
The Career Center is dedicated to facilitating career development and career-based experiential education opportunities that empower students to discover their unique calling and to engage in lifelong career management.
The Alumni Relations Department creates exciting and meaningful ways for alumni to participate in the life and vitality of the University.
Established in 1995, Seton Hall University’s Public Relations Student Society of America chapter has provided expert advice and service to organizations on and off campus for over 20 years.

Social Media Element:
I created a quick fact graphic to accompany my social media release when posted to any social media platform. The graphic is a good accompaniment for Twitter and Facebook. It was also created with Instagram dimensions in mind so that nothing has to be cropped or lost when posted to that platform.
Most people do not want to read a lengthy article or release, even if it is only 350 words. A quick fact graphic can help draw people into clicking, while still getting the most important information across.
This is an example of what the graphic would look like on social media:
