“Where Stately Oaks and Broad Magnolias Shade Inspiring Halls…”

We are Broad Magnolias Public Relations. We are a group of graduating seniors with one core tie: our love for LSU and gratitude for the education it has provided us. As such, we plucked our name from the first line of the LSU Alma Mater, as it was only fitting that we dedicate our final group project to the university that brought us all together.

Mission Statement:

To assist the humanitarian efforts of local organizations by improving their communication and garnering awareness and advocacy within their publics.
