Hilltoppers Attend PRSSA National Assembly in Hometown

This week seven St. Edward’s University students will attend the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) National Assembly.  For the first time, the National Assembly will be hosted at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Austin.

The PRSSA National Assembly will host students and elected Chapter delegates from 248 universities nationwide. PRSSA members will receive leadership training as well as vote on the National Committee representatives. The conference will include a Day of Competition sponsored by the CW network and numerous keynote speakers.  The Assembly begins on Thursday, March 11th and continues through Sunday, March 14th.

“We are very excited to have the National Assembly hosted in our hometown, because it provides our chapter with a greater opportunity to send students who want to participate and get involved,” said Ally Hugg, St. Edward’s PRSSA Chapter President.  

Local PRSSA Chapters at The University of Texas, Texas State, and St. Edward’s University , along with the Austin PRSA Chapter, will be hosting a “Networking Bingo” that will give students a chance to meet each other and network with Austin area communication professionals. This opportunity will allow students to work on interviewing skills, and discuss recruitment opportunities following Assembly activities on Friday, March 13th at 5:30PM at the Hyatt.

The St. Edward’s University Chapter will be live Tweeting from the Assembly and the “Networking Bingo” from @SEUPRSSA and from personal Twitter accounts. Students will also be posting information on the Chapter blog and Facebook account.

SEU PRSSA Art Show a Success

Last week our PRSSA Chapter hosted an Art Show at St. Edward’s University. What a fun event to host on a rainy Friday evening. We featured 7 artists from the Austin community who proudly displayed their work in Mabee Ballroom. With good snacks and friends, the Art Show was a hit. Students passing by stopped in to view art work and listen to the featured band – Crowded Hill. One lucky guest even won a lovely painting in the silent auction. With a small door donation, our PRSSA Chapter was able to raise funding for upcoming events – such as the PRSSA National Assembly, which will be held in Austin this year. The Art Show was a great experience both for those attending and for the members who helped prepare for the event. Members gained valuable experience in event planning, organization, and promotion. We look forward to hosting a similar event in the future.  Below you will find some pictures from the event. Please feel free to inquire about any of the artists. Also be sure to check out the video clip of Crowded Hill’s performance. Thanks again to everyone who came out to support our Chapter and the artists.
