In my last semester of college, I took the capstone course for my Public Communication degree. Unlike most capstone courses where you have a ginormous monster of a thesis paper, this capstone course was more hands-on. At the beginning of the semester, the class was divided into teams and we were all given a client and we had to create a PR plan to meet the client’s goals. Several weeks later, the client team came back to campus and we had to pitch our PR plans to them. A big chunk of our final grade was based off that presentation. Almost an entire semester’s worth of work boiled down to a 10 minute pitch. It was stressful and nerve-wracking and exciting all at the same time. The morning of our presentation, my team was in one of the library’s conference rooms finalizing and rehearsing our pitch for the zillionth time, putting out any last-minute fires and getting ourselves ready. I read over my notecard with a curling iron in one hand and a bagel in the other.
