PRSSA Kicks Off Year With Information Panel

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 8, 2015)  The University of Kentucky chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) will host its first meeting of the 2015-2016 school year today at 6:30 p.m. in Student Services Center in Grehan Journalism Building on campus. The meeting, open to current members and all students interested in joining, will feature a panel of faculty and staff in UK’s integrated strategic communication department.  

The ISC panel, including Anthony Limperos, Chike Anyaegbunam, Sarah Geegan and Beth Barnes of the College of Communication and Information, will answer commonly asked questions about ISC and the public relations field.  Following this portion of the meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to ask any unanswered questions or receive advice from any and all panel members.

Students will learn more about PRSSA, the ISC major and public relations. The panel-style meeting will provide students with networking opportunities and the chance to ask any questions they may have about related fields.  

In addition to this kick-off meeting, PRSSA will host another event in September.  The annual Keeneland tour, open to members and non-members, will be Sept. 25.  Students will tour the track, hear from Keeneland’s marketing director and learn about Keeneland’s involvement with the Breeder’s Cup World Championship.  Meetings are held once a month, and there will be various public relations events held throughout the year, as well.
