My first year in the FIT PRSSA has changed my life.
Before coming to FIT I didn’t really have a career path. As a transfer student, I was worried about where I would fit in within the school. Not really a freshman, but not an upperclassman either, I was in transfer student limbo. I decided the best way to get included on campus was to join a club, and I am so glad that I did.
After joining PRSSA I have not only found my passion for PR, I have also created amazing connections with fellow members that will last a lifetime.
PRSSA does an incredible job at being informative and creating a space in which people enjoy coming to. The members of the executive board make everyone feel welcome and have amazing insight. The inclusion of off-campus meet-ups where members get to know each other outside of the meetings is another great way PRSSA has allowed us all to get to know each other and bond.
I was recently awarded PRSSA Member of the Month, which was both an honor and a privilege. I have since been chosen as one of the ticket sales leads for “Match Made on 7th”, our student-run speed dating event, and I am super excited to be working with such an amazing group of people.
PRSSA has helped shape the way I make connections. I have attended all of the PRSSA meetings thus far, and have met numerous professionals in the industry, allowing for wonderful networking opportunities.
As I begin my first internship this semester, I owe the knowledge and experience I have obtained to my time in the PRSSA. I am thankful for all that PRSSA has given me, and I look forward to giving back to the chapter throughout my time at FIT.
