Who we are

The American Advertising Federation/Public Relations Student Society of America clubs at Point Park University are the pre-professional student chapters of the nationally recognized professional organizations, the American Advertising Federation and Public Relations Society of America.

The AdFed/PRSSA clubs model their yearly goals after the methods and tactics of the two parent organizations in ways that provide students with relevant experience, networking opportunities and professional skill building in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh.

What we do

The clubs strive to provide students with a better understanding of the real world by participating in the following activities:
