Welcome PR Students!
We’re glad you found your way to this page on the PRSA Boston web site!
We are hoping you will use this web page as your resource to stay up-to-date on industry and networking events and entry-level jobs and internships.
Our @PRstudentsConnect Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/PRstudentsConnect) is another great resource that allows you to connect with other PR students throughout New England & Upstate New York. You can also access tips & advice (like this one from culpwrit titled, “3 Reasons You Should Shadow a PR Pro”) and find out about news & events happening throughout the district as well as on a national level.
This page also provides you with direct links to help you easily connect to PRSA Boston professionals through job shadow opportunities, blog posts and the Mentor Match program through links built directly to other areas of this PRSA Boston web site from this dedicated page.

We invite all students interested in PR to connect here
using these links.
This includes students who:
• Belong to an official PRSSA Chapter
at your college or university
• Are a PRSSA Champion
• Belong to a PR Club formed at your college
• Are an independent PRSSA Associate Member
• Belong to the PR Club or are an AMA Member
• Students who are exploring an interest in PR
Do you want to be a member of PRSSA but your school does not have
an official PRSSA group?
Here’s some great ways to become involved:
• Become a PRSSA Affiliate Member (prsa.org/join-prssa)
This is a chance for students at a college or university that does not have an official PRSSA Chapter to become an Affiliate member and access the many benefits PRSSA has to offer. Download the application: http://prssa.prsa.org/join-prssa/prssa-affiliate-program/.
• Then start a PR Club at your school.
Get other communication and marketing students involved and host some speakers or do some fundraisers that you can promote. Find a group or club on campus (Career Services, Health Services, Intercultural Affairs) to partner with to help them promote some of their services. If you get enough students involved and you have PR classes at your college, you can look into forming an “official” PRSSA Chapter.
