PRSSA gearing up for semester

Posted 8-30-2011 by Barrie Hill

Studies show that students involved in student organizations related to their field of study do better in their classes. Students who participate in organizations also have a higher chance of gaining career employment after graduation.

The Public Relations Student Society of America is inviting UTA Department of Communication students the opportunity to network with professionals, professors and colleagues. 

"Our group provides an environment where students can learn by doing," said Rachel Makutuya, VP of Recruitment and Retainment for PRSSA's UTA chapter. "Our organization is made up of multiple committees within our team. Within these teams, students can work on writing skills, graphic design and event planning."

In Fall 2010, PRSSA was voted the “Best Student Organization on Campus” by The Shorthorn.

PRSSA members will be visiting Communication classes in the coming weeks to inform students about the benefits of joining PRSSA. 

"We will also be at the Student Activities Fair on Aug. 31 with more information about our club," Makutuya said.

The PRSSA chapter meets the first Thursday of the month. The semester's first meeting will be Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m. in FAB room 327.
