sealOlivet PRSSA is an official club at Olivet Nazarene University that is working towards official recognition as an official chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America National organization. As the new PR program launches at Olivet, a group of founding students have passionately launched a club and were recognized on September 8, 2015. Local PRSA chapters are working with ONU faculty and students mentoring them through the process of chapter recognition. Founding students have jumped with both feet into embracing the mission of the national organization and will uphold the code of ethics through the recognition process.

The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. We seek to advance the public relations profession by nurturing generations of future professionals. We advocate rigorous academic standards for public relations education, the highest ethical principles and diversity in the profession.


PRSSA is made up of more than 11,000 students and advisers organized into 300 plus Chapters in the United States, Argentina, Colombia and Peru. We are headquartered in New York City and led by a National Committee of PRSSA and PRSA members. We have a rich history of support from our parent organization, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), which offers professional development, networking opportunities and news.

PRSSA helps you enhance your education, broaden your network and launch your career in public relations.

Here at Olivet, the professors provide “Education with a Christian Purpose.” Our chapter strongly identifies with this mission and centers themselves upon Hebrews 10:24, the verse chosen for the year. “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”
