LOYOLA PUBLIC RELATIONS: A team of five students from Loyola University New Orleans recently won a Silver Anvil award from the New Orleans chapter of the Public Relations Society of America.
The Bateman team won for its “Pay Easy in the Big Easy” campaign to introduce Popmoney, a person-to-person payment service.
The Bateman team included Shermicia Calice, Natalie Masone, Lindsey Rousselle, Ashley Ureta and Alden Woodhull. Their faculty adviser was professor Cathy Rogers.
Loyola’s April Fools’ Day campaign to replace the iconic Loyola sign in front of Marquette Hall with permanent YOLO letters (You Only Loyola Once) won an Award of Merit. The public relations portion of the campaign was developed and executed by Mikel Pak, Loyola’s associate director of public affairs, while the social media campaign was executed by FSC Interactive.
FSC Interactive also received an Award of Merit for Loyola’s 2014 “selfie” campaign for commencement. Loyola was the only local university to showcase live social media posts on multiple giant video screens throughout the Mercedes-Benz Superdome leading up to its spring undergraduate and graduate commencement ceremony. Students, parents, families and faculty submitted photos before the ceremony with the hashtag #Loyno2014.
