Remember that person who took you under their wing as you entered the professional world? A mentor, first boss, professor, a PR rockstar who you idolized... You get the picture. Now is your chance to give back.
Our local Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapters are super engaged and doing some pretty cool things in the coming months, and you can help!

- Date: Wednesday, April 12
- Time: 7 to 9 PM
