This topic of the week is for both PRCA 2330 and PRCA 3334.

Halloween is this week. What was your favorite costume when you were a child? (If you have a picture, please share). Did you carve a pumpkin?

As seen in the image above, universities are getting in on the act of Halloween by supplying templates for fans to use when carving their pumpkins. As public relations students, what are your thoughts on this? Do you think it’s a proactive way to remain in the forefront of a community’s mind? Or, is it something else, and if so, what? Should other businesses other than universities (i.e. fast food, drink companies, etc.) provide templates of their logos for this purpose? Do you think it would be a success or a flop?
