Student Endorsements

  • "Getting involved in your major is an individual responsibility, but the Communications Department makes the extra effort to help students be aware of the opportunities available for us, and encourages everyone to take advantage of those opportunities. I recently traveled to San Francisco with other UVU PR students and advisors for the PRSSA National Conference where we learned about our industry and experienced an environment of professionalism. Not only did I learn from industry professionals, but I was able to network and meet potential employers. I intend to continue my involvement with PRSSA by running for local and national presidencies, and attend more national conferences. The UVU Communications Department has helped me prepare for my future career."--Priscilla Silva (Class of 2014)
