PRSSA is an organization for students studying public relations or a related field. Our chapter is one of many across the nation that work with students to advance the academic field. 

By getting involved with PRSSA, you will:

  • Enhance your education:  PRSSA gives you resources that connect your classes with other academic activities. You'll gain practical knowledge and have access to scholarships and internships.
  • Gain hands-on experience: Members of PRSSA gain hands-on public relations experience by working together to host events and campaigns both on and off-campus. Messiah's PRSSA connects with local nonprofits to help their cause and generate publicity for the organization.
  • Join the network: PRSSA members can attend countless conferences throughout the year hosted by regional and local chapters, such as the Pennsylvania Public Relations Society (PPRS).

PRSSASome of our Chapter's projects include:

  • Relay For Life: In Spring 2015, we hosted the annual Relay for Life of Messiah College. We raised over $12,000 to support the American Cancer Society and those struggling with cancer. Over 200 participants came to the event
  • Caitlin's Smiles: Our chapter planned a 5K event called "Miles for Smiles" for the Harrisburg-based nonprofit, Caitlin Smiles.
