Public relations to hold blue-carpet workshops May 13 and 14

Ever wonder if Tery Donelson is director of enrollment management, or for enrollment management? Are those folks who so deftly assist students advisors or advisers? What are the official Columbia College fonts, and how do you make an invitation well, inviting?

Find out the answers to these burning questions May 13 from 10-11 a.m. and May 14 from 3-4 p.m. in Dorsey Gym as the public relations department holds its first blue carpet style-guide workshops. Public relations is responsible for managing the college's reputation and identity by ensuring consistent editorial and design standards. With valuable input from representatives of virtually all areas of the college, we have developed the Columbia College Style and Editorial Guide.

The Columbia College Style and Editorial Guide is a single reference for all aspects of the college's identity, including editorial requirements and policies regarding the use of the college logo, seal and other marks on all college publications and materials, whether produced by the college or by an outside agency.

RSVP to Jennifer Jonas at by May 8. You also can request one-on-one or departmental training for you or your staff by contacting her at the e-mail above or at 875-7207.

Can a logo be pink? Should sites include that http://, and is it Web site or website? Yes, there will be a quiz. You can get a jump by studying the guide now, previously sent to all staff.

And why blue carpet, not red carpet? Come and find out.
