Our Student Run PR Firm

The title for the group is currently pending. The firm gives members the opportunity to gain experience working with on and off campus organizations. It gives the members of PRSSA hands on experience to help clients, impress future employers, and see what it is like to work in the real world of public relations. In the 2012-2013 year, the firm took on three clients: Alleyway Boutique, Aj's Burgers, and Waterspring Water, Inc. We generated press through press releases, social networking, and various events. We look forward to continuing our work and partnerships in the future.
