Directed by Edward Powers, director of the theater program and professor of theater at Waynesburg University, the Waynesburg University Theater Program will host an evening of one-act plays, Tuesday, April 22, at 8 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

The three one-act plays bring student work to life as students perform their scripts written from a recent playwriting course. Original one-act plays are showcased and presented in a workshop format.

“Each of these stories offers an opportunity for actor and director to build a character and a situation from the ground up,” said Powers. “The playwright has given them the words, and now the other theater artists are striving to bring these words to life.”

Reservations are strongly suggested. Seats may be reserved by calling 724-852-3226.

Waynesburg University’s chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) will hold its fourth annual PR Week celebration Monday, April 7, through Friday, April 11. This week-long event recognizes the hard work and dedication public relations majors show within the field of public relations throughout the academic year.

PR Week is comprised of high-profile guests who travel to Waynesburg University to speak about their personal wealth of experiences in public relations. Students also receive the opportunity to network and gain further insight into the industry.

The week will include an alumni and sports panel, a Mini Bateman Competition and a Communication Carnival. In addition to those events, four speakers will discuss PRSA National Board, blogging, healthcare public relations and marketing communications.

Joy Eggleston, Senior Public Affairs Officer at Southwest Regional Medical Center
Eggleston serves as the Public Affairs Officer in the healthcare sector of public relations. She will bring a dynamic view to PR Week through speaking on behalf of healthcare in public relations.

Under the supervision of Richard Krause, chair of the Department of Communication and Chapter advisor, PR Week was founded and developed extensively to reward students for their year-long work ethic and to provide essential learning opportunities outside of the classroom setting. Krause originally designed the week with the help of students and now relies on them to assist in contacting and introducing speakers, coordinating facilities and performing evaluation measures.

“The programs are designed to give our current students knowledge of the public relations industry,” Krause said. “We have a very strong list of speakers and the range is intentionally diverse. The speakers will provide students with insight about agency, healthcare, corporate and energy fields of public relations.”

PRSSA would like to invite any Waynesburg University student, particularly those studying advertising, marketing and business, to participate in the week’s events. PR Week focuses on informing those who are interested in learning more about the field and networking with various professionals.

Waynesburg University’s PRSSA Chapter enhances the education of public relations students by advocating rigorous academic standards, creating valuable networking opportunities and enriching professional development within the field. As an affiliation with its parent chapter Public Relations Society of American (PRSA), the PRSSA chapter of Waynesburg University gains tools to support advocacy from the society and encourage individual leaders to adopt their own initiatives to support their communities.
