About Us

Welcome to the Edward L. Bernays Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America at Boston University!

The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. We seek to advance the public relations profession by nurturing generations of future professionals. We advocate rigorous academic standards for public relations education, the highest ethical principles and diversity in the profession.

Here at Boston University PRSSA, we are committed to the following goals:

  • To offer the opportunity to learn about public relations through lectures, panels, and workshops.
  • To act as a liaison between students and the professional organization of the Public Relations Society of America.
  • To provide students the chance to share their experiences in public relations with other interested students.
  • To give students a chance to network with public relations professionals.

BU’s Chapter of PRSSA hosts weekly meetings where professionals in public relations, marketing, communications speak to our Chapter’s members about their professional experiences.

It’s not too late to join PRSSA! Come join us in COM 106 this Thursday at 5 for our weekly meeting.
