What is PRSSA?

The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the leading pre-professional public relations society in the country. All majors are welcome to join and through membership, students have access to a wide range of benefits that will enhance one’s knowledge of the public relations profession and provide resources to increase marketability. Students also have opportunities to travel and attend national events; network with professionals and colleagues; obtain access to internships and jobs around the country; and gain leadership experience and training on local, regional and national levels. Meetings are held during the school year every month in the Communications Building and all are invited to attend, regardless of major. 

The Sammie Lynn Puett Chapter 

UTK PRSSA was established in 1973 and named the Sammie Lynn Putt Chapter. Today, the chapter has more than 100 members. UTK PRSSA works closely with the local PRSA chapter, the Knoxville Volunteer Chapter. Our chapter is dedicated to Sammie Lynn Puett, who tragically passed away on October 11, 2001. The mission of UTK PRSSA is to serve its members by enhancing their knowledge of PR while providing access to professional development opportunities.
