Meet the Public Relations Directorship

Public Relations Directorship
Note:  This profile is the fourth article in a series profiling the directorships within the PSWE Executive Board.

Meet the Directorship and Chairs!

Public Relations DirectorshipThe Public Relations Directorship is the behind-the-scenes directorship that helps get the word out about how amazing PSWE is and the upcoming events within PSWE.  Our chairwomen are Atiqah Rahmen, the Publicity Chair, and Molly Riccitelli, our Webmaster. Both Atiqah and Molly get dates and information about upcoming events from other members of the board.

Publicity – Atiqah Rahmen 
Using information from other board members, Atiqah creates fliers, writes on whiteboards, chalks sidewalks and creates sheetsigns for the events requesting these forms of advertisement. Atiqah also runs a publicity committee as needed to help her with advertising. She also posts announcements through ECN and the secretaries in the engineering offices. Make sure to be on the lookout for her advertisements!

Webmaster – Molly Riccitelli
Molly handles most of our digital advertising. Molly runs the PSWE Facebook pagewebsite, and twitter for Purdue SWE. These resources are all great ways to keep involved with SWE and learn what events are coming up! We strongly encourage people to communicate within the organization on the Facebook page and tweet at us (@pswesays) during events or about events. We welcome engineering jokes and questions on both the Facebook page and on Twitter.

Meet the Director!

Theresa Matthews
The Public Relations Director helps the chairs however needed by the chairs. She also acts as the liaison between the officers, other directors and her chairwomen. This helps keep everyone on the same page about what needs advertising, what’s been advertised and how advertising is going. The director also plans the fall cookout and the spring pancake breakfast.  Theresa is a senior in Chemical Engineering.

Q:  What Public Relations event are you looking forward to?
A:  For those who missed the free hotdogs and information about PSWE in the fall… be ready for the pancake breakfast after spring break. We’re waiting for the weather to warm up, so expect free pancakes around the end of March or early April!

Thanks for learning about the Public Relations Directorship. We love talking about Purdue SWE, so if you have any questions about what we do or how you can learn more about PSWE, feel free to email the Public Relations director Theresa at
