To that end, the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) was established to help public relations majors gain an entry into the world of PR. PRSSA often assisted its parent organization, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSSA), which was very influential in the PR community. "When you get a PR degree, you are expected to be in PRSSA^' said senior public relations major Erika Farris. "If you're not, people wonder why!' For this reason, most of the members' professors were in the group. This enabled the students to get to know their professors on a more personal level. Within the PRSSA group, the professors treated the students as peers, rather than pupils. When they returned to the classroom, the students' relationship with their professors was more familiar and less strained, It shows that you have initiative and enthusiasm." - Erika Farris PRSSA OFFICERS Top: Michelle Norton, Kelly Papinchak, Allison Davis, Christina Foley, Vanessa Wade, Stephen Steficek.

The group set the students up with internship opportunities throughout the PR community and also helped them through its mentorship program. A student could specify which aspect of the public relations field interested them the most, and the group would find a professor who specialized in that part of the job. This way, the student could learn more about the opportunities available in that area, as well as getting personalized attention to help him or her make important career decisions. No matter what opportunities the members of the organization choose to take advantage of, they built relationships with people who could help them later on down the line. "When you are in a field like PR, you have to be willing to get to know people and network;' said Farris. -Ashley Grubbs TICKET TO RIDE Natalie Yeats, Melissa MacNeish, Lindsey Fridge and Erika Farris rode the bus at the National Conference in Chicago.
