We are the oldest chapter of PRSSA in Indiana and among the oldest in the nation. PRSSA is a student-run organization that strives to educate it's members about the art and science of Public Relations. Members get a chance to develop relationships with PR professionals and other Ball State students interested in the profession. Members learn more about PR through chapter programs on internships and job skills.

It is the premier learning laboratory for students in both the art and science of public relations, advertising and marketing at Ball State University This learning environment creates a 'win-win' situation for client and student alike.
