Public Relations Student Society of America (Loyola Chapter)

The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. We seek to advance the public relations profession by nurturing generations of future professionals. We advocate rigorous academic standards for public relations education, the highest ethical principles and diversity in the profession. We have a rich history of support from our parent organization, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), which offers professional development, networking opportunities and news.

Today, the Public Relations Student Society of America has more than 10,000 members in over 300 universities across the country.

PRSSA seeks to:

Enhance your education by recommending great places to study public relations, and helping you get the experience, achievements and practical knowledge employers are seeking. PRSSA offers internship listings, competitions, and Chapter and National leadership opportunities; scholarships and leaderships awards; and publications, news and social media to keep you updated on industry trends.

Broaden your network by connecting you to lifelong opportunity, experience and professional growth. Develop valuable relationships with future colleagues through PRSSA National and regional events, PRSSA Chapters, PRSSA social media or Chapter and National leadership opportunities.
