Public Relations are an essential component of any career. As NGG students, we hope to always put our best foot forward: to our alumni, to future NGG students, and to the Internet-at-large.  Activities include the alumni affairs initiative, recruitment, and website management; of these, recruitment draws the greatest number of NGG students each year, whether in  participatory or organizational roles.  Recruitment weekends rely heavily on the enthusiasm and dedication of NGG students.
