Detroit Day One: Part Two

Finally, we rode the people mover back to the hotel. It was an interesting experience. Think the monorail at Disney World meets the extreme urban life. We meet another student who helped planned the conference from Eastern Michigan University. She gave us tips for places to eat. Apparently, there is a restaurant close to our hotel that serves "southern" food. There will be a PRSA/PRSSA impromptu twitters'(?) meet-up there tomorrow night. 

We sat with Tennessee at the Motown social.  We gave out our Bama stuff, including shoe laces, pins, pens, note pads and pencils. Everyone else had better stuff than us! I got tons of pens from schools like University of Northern Iowa and the University of Tennessee. I got a cup from Penn. State (those girls were very nice! They are the proud new owners of Bama shoe laces). I got a Frisbee and lots of candy. I think the stand out of the event was the University of Florida, they gave me a tee shirt and messenger bag!! The tee shirt has 10 things PR people are NOT. 
The view from the Renaissance Center. Notice the buildings on the opposite side of the river? They're actually in Canada. You can either walk to Canada from downtown, take a bridge over or go in a tunnel under the river.

The entrance to the conference rooms.
