UTA's chapter of PRSSA has been very busy with all sorts of preparatory tasks for the upcoming semester!  We've committed a lot of time to being sure that new students recognize us as a distint presence and an active organization—as soon as they begin their courses!

Student participation is a crucial part of any organization, but that's especially true with PRSSA.  Our members volunteer their own time to host our various events and fundraisers.

PRSSA has had an active student chapter at UTA for several years. PRSSA is the student branch of its parent organization PRSA, the Public Relations Society of America.
