PRSSA provides opportunities for communication students
Anyone studying or interested in communication is welcome to join the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
An especially exciting update in the club is its newest venture, “SOCIAL by PRSSA” — a real-world PR opportunity for PRSSA members to hire out their services to other clubs on campus. Services include social media management, branding, video production, photography, event planning, public relations, digital content, research, advertising, and influencer marketing. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience as a communications professional and is something you can add to your resume that will make you stand out to employers.
Being able to tell future employers that you were connected with PRSSA bears a lot of weight in the PR community. PRSSA is a highly respected organization, and many Carthage graduates have gotten internships and jobs because of their connections with PRSSA. PRSSA is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. With over 300 chapters across the country, you’re invited to join Carthage’s PRSSA chapter right here on campus.
PRSSA at Carthage is excited to have begun their Social Media Master Class with the help of The Aspire Center! Through this event, Carthage students are given the opportunity to learn about marketing via social media using Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok. This event is geared towards students in leadership positions of clubs on campus so they can have the necessary tools to market themselves for events and membership. The class focuses its teaching on creating engaging content to increase student involvement on campus. PRSSA and The Aspire Center plan to continue hosting classes for students who wish to learn more about social media and public relations!
“Our first Social Media Master Class was a huge success,” says Nina Werger ’24, PRSSA president at Carthage. “We had almost 50 people attend including students, staff, and faculty. Collaborating with The Aspire Center allowed us to create a larger-scale event where we could present research on how to create successful posts, social media calendars, and event marketing. At our second class next semester, we plan on going more in-depth into the algorithms and social media marketing.”
Lorin Bucur ’26 says, “Attending PRSSA’s master class taught me valuable skills for social media. I know it will be useful in helping me to market my club’s future activities to other students.”
