Welcome to the Hugh M. Culbertson Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) at Ohio University
As a Chapter in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, our main goal is to offer members beneficial relationships with public relations practicioners that facilitate the learning, acquiring and development of professional skills -supplemented by educational knowledge- to be applied in everyday decisions.
We meet every Monday at 6 p.m. in Alden Library’s Friends of the Library room, and host weekly professional speakers to allow in-person networking opportunities for our members. Our Chapter prides itself on providing real-world experience matched with up-to-date educational tools in order to best prepare our members to be the best communicators post graduation.
According to the National Public Relations Student Society of America website, PRSSA is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. PRSSA seeks to “advance the public relations profession by nurturing generations of future professionals.” This is the pre-professional student version of the Public Relations Society of America.
