Travel

Do you want to network with professionals in New York City?
As a member of OSU PRSSA, you will be granted the opportunity to travel to Chicago or New York City for networking purposes. While on this trip, you will find yourself visiting various agencies that align with your desired career path. This is a wonderful opportunity to bond with fellow PRSSA members, and make connections outside of Ohio that could later on lead to potential internships and/or a career. The Chicago trip will take place in November, and the New York City Trip will take place in January. Keep an eye out for additional information.

PRSSA visits the Windy City
In November, PRSSA members had the opportunity to travel to Chicago for a three-day trip. In Chicago, members had the opportunity to network with professionals from the Chicago Cubs, Rise Interactive, Edelman, Pinterest, and more! Besides networking, our members connected with DePaul’s PRSSA members and explored the city.

Do you want to network with professionals and other PRSSA students from across the country and the world?

Every year, the national chapter of PRSSA hosts an International Conference which hosts members of PRSSA from chapters around the country as well as professionals with insight on the industry. International has been hosted in locations like Boston, Austin and San Diego. This year looks a little different, because ICON 2021 is completely online! This means international conference will be even more accessible this year.
