Public relations, reports the Des Moines Register, is in newly demonstrated good standing at Iowa State University, as it is, presumably, at other colleges and universities. Seventy-one students changed their majors at an open house on Iowa State's just-approved PR major and 12 to 15 more chose to add PR as a double major. In these times, that's truly a demonstration of confidence in a career field for the future. The Greenlee School, where the new major is housed, has a total of 700 students majoring in journalism and mass communication, advertising and, now, public relations.
