Why did you join PRSSA?

I joined PRSSA because I recognized how much our organization could help enhance my knowledge of the Public Relations field. I knew that I would have opportunities like no other by becoming a member. When I first came to American University I was not very familiar with what Public Relations is, even after my first semester I had little to no idea. Once becoming more involved with PRSSA, I have seen first hand where Public Relations is used and learned more than I ever thought possible about it! I am now able to recognize how important this organization is in relation to my major and do my best to take as much away from all of the PRSSA events that I can!

Why do you think others should join?

The biggest reason why I think that other people should join PRSSA is because of the opportunities people are given. As a member, you get access to special internships, speakers, and events that you might not otherwise get. Although many other organizations give similar opportunities, PRSSA is different in the way that we are a pre-professional organization focusing on enhancing members educations about the Public Relations field. I think it is important to remember that members get as much out of it as they put in. The more you are willing to learn and take away, the better effects it will have on yourself and your career.
