What the Heck is PR?

Almost every time I tell someone that I am taking Public Relations at Durham College, that is the question I am always asked. But really, what the heck is PR anyways?

Google defines Public Relations as: “The maintenance of a favorable public image and relationship with the public and a company, organization or famous person.”

So what the heck does that mean? Well, simply put, PR Professionals are the people who make companies, organizations and individuals look good and do good by the public. Any company, organization or famous individual that you have ever thought very highly of probably has a really good PR representative.
