BU PRSSA helped me establish a network of peers and mentors who have given me invaluable advice in navigating my career. Additionally, as Conference Coordinator, I learned event management and team leadership skills that I would continue to reference to years post-graduation.

As a young professional in the PR, media, and communications industries, I attribute much of my early career success to my time in BUPRSSA. While in college, I was able to greatly expand my professional network from Boston to California thanks to BUPRSSA. I am truly grateful for all that I learned and was able to be a part of through BUPRSSA.

BUPRSSA taught me to be a leader in a way that no other experience I've ever had has done. Surrounding myself with the smart, passionate and driven PRSSA members of Boston University's chapter truly shaped me as a professional, and am constantly in awe of the fact that the people that I met during my time in PRSSA are still very much a part of my professional network.

BUPRSSA has been an amazing networking tool for me after my time at BU. Everyone who is in it is more than happy to help out a current member or past alum. I, unknowingly, met some of my current coworkers at events like PR Advanced and was able to use that connection to build relationships.
