Student Org Spotlight: PRSSA

Akasha Khalsa

Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is NMU’s branch of a wider organization which seeks to connect students to their peers who are interested in pursuing careers in public relations. The student-led organization hopes to help its members gain skills which will help them integrate into the workforce and become more desirable applicants.

“We invite communications, marketing, business, art and graphic design majors and anyone who wants to be involved,” President of the PRSSA Molly Gaudreau said, “PR is an extremely diverse major that you can do so many things with and it translates well with other majors.”

PRSSA invites its members to take leadership roles in campus events and programs. For example, several passionate PRSSA members created and brought to fruition the Coffee Crawl, which raises money in Marquette for the women’s center. Through this event, the students had an opportunity to practice their PR skills.

PRSSA meets every Tuesday at 8 p.m. in room 224 of the library.
