OREM, Utah (Dec. 8, 2016) — The Utah Valley University Public Relations Student Society of America Chapter hosted students for their semi-annual fall excursion to agencies such as Adobe, DOMO and Nuvi on Nov. 4, 2016.

Students that applied for the excursion had to be a national PRSSA member, a UVU student and interested in the public relations industry.

“We were so excited to have the opportunity to visit some of the most successful start-up’s in Utah county,” said Kaycee Colledge, vice president of fundraising, UVU PRSSA. “To get the chance of learning from some of the brightest minds in Utah, is something that is worth the cost of our college tuition.”
