UVU Chapter Holds First Social Event of the Year

October 15, 2018



OREM, UTAH (Oct 15, 2018) – On Sept. 13, the Utah Valley University Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (UVU PRSSA) started the school year with their first social event “Rolling Through the Decades.” Nearly 80 students attended the event and many, including the entire executive board, were dressed in costumes from different decades.

“I love seeing the students come together and build connections with each other,” said Vice President of Events Paige Simpson. “Growing our networks is what PRSSA is all about and I think that goes beyond networking with professionals. Making connections with each other is what makes it enjoyable, exciting and straight up fun. I love being able to provide a place for the ‘UVUPRCrew’ to build those connections.”

The event was embellished with items and decorations from eras ranging from the 50’s to today. Each table had items such as Disney VHS tapes, Prince records and more. The highlight of the event was crepes catered by The Roll Up Crepe and a table adorned with retro candy.

“I can tell this year is going to be great from the turnout we had from this event,” said the UVU PRSSA Chapter President Tanner Kahl. “We had a huge turnout tonight, and I’m hoping this will help our committees grow and we can continue having a strong Chapter.”
