PRowl Public Relations Celebrates Tenth Anniversary

September 20, 2017

PHILADELPHIA (Sept. 20, 2017) — PRowl Public Relations, Temple University’s Nationally Affiliated Student-run Firm, is celebrating its tenth anniversary during the 2017-2018 school year. The firm will mark their anniversary with a special logo and other celebrations. Students from Temple are encouraged to apply for positions as the firm looks to continue to grow.


PRowl is one of approximately 25 firms in the country that holds National Affiliation through the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). The firm’s mission is threefold: to provide clients with comprehensive public relations services and solutions, to offer Temple PRSSA members the opportunity to apply their knowledge while gaining experience beyond the classroom and to build credibility while forming lasting student-client relationships.


“The most rewarding aspect of this position is watching passionate students’ work mature and improve over the course of the year with PRowl serving as the foundation to the start of successful careers in the industry,” said Clarissa Ford, PRowl Public Relations firm director. “Being able to serve clients in a Student-run Firm is a practical skill not every student has the opportunity to experience. That’s what makes PRowl so distinct.”


PRowl currently serves six clients with a staff of 56 members, the largest in the firm’s history. The firm has worked with a diverse set of clients during the last decade including Temple-related organizations and regional non-profit organizations and companies.

In October 2007, several Temple students attended the PRSSA National Conference in Philadelphia. Inspired by the Conference, PRowl’s founder, Natalie Prazenica, created the full-service firm in 2008. Since its inception, PRowl has specialized in various public relations services including research, content creation, media relations, social media management, event planning and more.

Within four years of its opening, the firm became Nationally Affiliated by the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). Being Nationally Affiliated certifies PRowl to work with national clients with added benefits such as Student-run Firm awards. In order to achieve National Affiliation, a firm must hold high levels of professionalism and meet the ethical standards outlined by PRSSA and PRSA.

“As I reflect back on PRowl Public Relations’ first decade, I’m amazed by its growth and the opportunities it has afforded our students,” said Associate Professor of Practice Gregg Feistman, PRowl’s Faculty Adviser. “From the beginning with a handful of staff members working with one or two clients, to now with hundreds of PRowl alumni who have gone on to do great things around the country based on their PRowl experience.”
