On behalf of the Illini Public Relations Association (Illini PRA), we are very excited to kick off the school year with our first general meeting!

From learning the basics, to networking with professionals, to visiting the top globally-recognized agencies in Chicago, Illini PRA strives to prepare University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students with the skill set needed to succeed in PR.

This semester, Illini PRA is pleased to announce that we are transitioning into a chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America ( PRSSA is a national organization with chapters across the country, and UIUC is soon to be it’s newest addition! While we are currently in the process of transitioning into an official PRSSA chapter, we will continue to operate under the Illini PRA name until further notice.
