COM 224 town hall program explores popular addictions

Students in Com 224: Foundations of Journalism and Promotional Communication presented 10 issues relating to the topic of 21st century addictions during a Town Hall presentation April 24.

Under the direction of communications professor Edward Horowitz, Ph.D., who as instructor of the class, selected the general topic, students worked in groups to explore themes of interest to them and create public relations campaigns about them.

They created table displays about their topics, including such dependencies as gambling, shopping addiction and overdoing it working out.

Featured speaker Amber Ferris, from University of Akron, discussed Facebook dependency and how to overcome it as part of the program.

Cleveland State’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) treated the Town Hall program as a client and helped promote the event with the Office of Civic Engagement, headed by Julian Rogers.
