The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA), is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications as a career field or focus.
PRSSA, founded in 1967, is comprised of nearly 9,000 students and advisors within 300+ chapters throughout multiple countries. Led by a U.S. National Committee, the organization is heavily supported by professionals in its parent organization, PRSA.
PRSSA advocates rigorous academic standards for public relations education, the highest ethical principles, and diversity in the profession. Students engaged in PRSSA can be connected with internships, competitions, scholarships, awards, and leadership opportunities. PRSSA also provides publications, news, and social media to keep students updated on industry trends.
Students engaged in area PRSSA chapters are encouraged to attend Central PA PRSA events, always at reduced rates, as well as submit entries into our annual chapter Keystone Awards program at no cost.
