CSUF PRSSA Bestowed With Star Chapter Award

Chapter Announced Winners at National Conference Awards Ceremony


FULLERTON, CA, October 9, 2017 – Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) awarded California State University, Fullerton the Star Chapter Award for its achievements in professional development at the PRSSA 2017 National Conference Awards Ceremony in Boston.


The Robert E. Rayfield Chapter met all ten qualifications of the award to be honored as Star Chapter. California State University, Fullerton conducted extensive high school and community college outreach and attended Orange County PRSA monthly board meetings to strengthen their relationship with their sponsoring PRSA Chapter. The Chapter also created a viral video titled “Let’s Get Ethical” during Ethics Month and completed a community service project in collaboration with Titan Public Relations, the Chapter’s Student-run firm, and Working Wardrobes, a nonprofit organization.


Among other qualifications, the organization received positive media exposure on The Daily Titan, a Student-run newspaper on campus, for the inaugural graduation ceremony hosted for PRSSA seniors. The Chapter extended an invitation to the entire campus through an email blast on the CSUF portal, which potentially reached over 40,000 students and faculty members.


PRSSA offers awards for strong leadership, Student-run firms, and superlative Chapters. Visit http://www.prssa.prsa.org for more information about PRSSA Chapter Awards.
