Publicity Center


In addition to crafting press releases and online announcements, our writers contribute to Hype Online and frequently have stories published in The Daily Record, Ellensburg's local newspaper. This is a great opportunity for the students to enhance their portfolios, while providing another outlet to promote campus events.
