Photo by Mona Arnold. The Public Relations Student Society of America has earned the distinction of being the second largest public relations society in the world. Over five thousand students in one hundred and fifty chapters across the nation make up PRSSA and members are quick to add that it is not a "club" but rather a pre- professional organization. PRSSA was founded in 1968 by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) with the purpose of cultivating a mutually advantageous relationship between students and professional public relations practitioners. Its further aims are to foster the student understanding of modern theories and procedures, to instill in them a profes sional attitude and encourage them to adhere to the highest ideals of the practice of public relations. There are many hands-on opportunities in PRSSA. The UH chapter held a communications mixer, participated in the Activities Marts for incoming students, was the first non- ethnically oriented group to participate in the International Food Fair, sent a member to the national conference in Cincinnati, sent a member to the national assembly in Atlanta, and attended PRSA luncheon meetings and seminars. They also assisted the Houston PRSA group with the Excalibur Awards and the PRSA membership drive. Helping with production of a monthly newsletter also gave newcomers a great chance to get their feet wet. PRSSA also worked with a non-profit service center to design a newsletter template, update their brochure design and logo. Several members also used the free PRSA job bank to find their first public relations jobs. The mentor program also helped newcomers to "buddy-up" with a professional and learn about the different public relations fields. Perhaps the highlight of the year was adopting a new chapter name. In honor of one of the original founding members, they petitioned PRSA National to change the chapter name to The Farris Block Chapter. At a surprise banquet, he was paid tribute by sev- eral speakers and awarded a plaque to commemorate the occasion. ► Alice Quinn 108 ■ Organizations
