Bring in the spring with PRSSA-UD

Fall 2011 Accomplishments

Last semester, PRSSA-UD increased meeting attendance by 30%, gave away more than $3,500 in scholarships, kicked off our mentor-mentee program which grew by 700%, and much more!

This semester, we’re looking forward to doing so much more including bringing the infamous Intern Queen to campus, hosting a variety of Skill Slam activities and speakers, going on agency tours, and bringing back our PRSSA Challenge event! So, pull out those calendars and save the dates for these events.
