The spring 2014 semester is about to begin and PRSSA has some truly exciting plans to keep us busy. I’m stoked to work with everyone to make them a huge success. Here are just a few of our plans for the upcoming semester:
1. Detroit Agency Tour – In the past Ferris State’s chapter of PRSSA has made educational tours in Grand Rapids and Lansing, but this spring we’ve decided to make the leap for Detroit. With alumni connecting us with companies like Hello Innovations and ePrize, the Detroit tour is sure to give us a great sneak peek into the work available in southeast Michigan. The trip will be an all-day excursion on Friday, March 28.
2. Ferris State PRSSA Branding – Our members are in the process of creating a unique identity system for our chapter of PRSSA. This semester will begin the execution of new logos and communication strategies for our organization. Be on the lookout!
3. Senior Send-Off – Every year, Ferris State PRSSA sends the seniors on their merry way with a bash that simply can’t be missed. Every dues-paying PRSSA member receives free admission to the event and everything is included (except alcohol if there’s a bar like there was last year). I’d say more about what’s happening at the event but tradition prevents anyone graduating from knowing what to expect. Be sure to mark your calendar for April 24 so you don’t forget to attend!
I’m excited to see what happens this semester. It should be an absolute blast!
