Elon's PRSSA Chapter Holds Spring Fling

Elon’s Public Relations Student Society of America chapter held its second annual Spring Fling event on Friday, April 21.

The event included speed networking with professionals from the PRSA Tarheel chapter as well as portfolio critiques by the professionals. The event was held in McEwen building, home of Elon’s School of Communications.

“I really enjoyed the opportunity to speak with professionals about their careers in public relations, and I found the resume critiquing to be very helpful,” said Bobby Hoppey, Elon PRSSA chapter vice president.

Seventeen students, including five PRSSA members from the North Carolina A&T State University chapter, attended the session.

Seven public relations practitioners from businesses such as the Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, the City of Greensboro, Branch Banking & Trust Company, and Trone Public Relations also participated.
