Public Relations Student Society of America
The Public Relations Student Society of America Chapter at LIU Post Campus enhances a student’s education in public relations through direct national membership benefits and PRSSA chapter activities. Open to majors, minors and students who have taken at least one PR course, PRSSA membership provides access to a databank of internships and jobs, offers exclusive scholarships, and connects students to professionals in the field. For general information, visit the national website at http://www.prssa.org/
At LIU Post, public relations students lead the PRSSA’s Business Etiquette workshops given in Management 12 classes each semester to build communication and presentation skills. Professionals are invited to PRSSA Open Lunches so students can meet practitioners in informal settings to learn about their work and talk about the changing dynamics of the field. In addition, students periodically visit New York agencies and the offices of Business Wire and NAPS to get a perspective on the scope of the business as part of PR Ventures.
Spring semester features the annual Public Relations Explorations Forum. This event brings well known practitioners to the campus to serve as panelists on themes, such as Fashion and Beauty; Sports and Entertainment; Where PR and News Meet, The Special Event: Gala, Glamour & Good Works; Global PR; Earth Angels: Promoting Good Earth Practices; and Powering PR, just to name a few.
When you become a member of PRSSA, you meet other students like yourself and join a community of alumni and professionals who are respected practitioners.
