In 1968, 20 years after its own establishment, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) founded the Public Relations Student Society of America. The declared purpose of PRSSA is to cultivate a favorable and mutually advantageous relationship between students and professional public relations practitioners.

The student society aims to foster the following:

  • Understanding of current theories and procedures of the profession
  • Appreciation of the highest ethical ideals and principles
  • Awareness of an appropriate professional attitude
  • Appreciation of Associate Membership in PRSA and eventually accredited membership

Today The Public Relations Student Society of America has more than 11,000 members in 300 universities across the country.

The Fresno State Paul D. Adams chapter of PRSSA, established in 2001, is a great way to network with other students and professionals in your particular field of interest. PRSSA offers beneficial workshops and insightful guest speakers that help guide you toward your ultimate professional goal.

PRSSA is not only for public relations options. We love to diversify our group by combining all of our valuable knowledge in order to create a team-driven road to success. We are a fun group that's all about making friends and enhancing our futures.
