Founded in 1972, the Ball State chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the oldest in Indiana. We strive to enhance students’ knowledge about the industry, enhance their professional, personal and educational development and promote the ethical practice of public relations.

The chapter meets every other Thursday in room 341 in the Art and Journalism building at 7:15 p.m. Meetings last about an hour.

The Ball State Chapter has hosted speakers from BRANDed Management, RoundPeg, DKNY, Irvin Public Relations, St. Vincent Hospital, Visit Indy, Borshoff, Weber Shandwick, Indiana Department of Revenue, Indiana Pacers, 500 Festival, Torchlite Marketing, BLASTmedia and more.
