The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA)
One of the funnest parts of my job is serving as the faculty adviser to the University of Florida chapter of PRSSA. UF PRSSA is a pre-professional society for students interested in pursuing public relations and communications.
Each year we host several visiting speakers, attend luncheons with our PRSA sponsoring chapter in Jacksonville, FL, and attend the PRSA/PRSSA national conference.
I also advise Alpha PRoductions, which is the student-run public relations firm affiliated with UF PRSSA. I have helped Alpha put on some fantastic events, including the annual Diversity in Public Relations Panel and The Executive Communications Summit, held last fall. Alpha has national affiliation with PRSSA and is the largest student-run firm in the state of florida.
