The Illinois State University (ISU) Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) embraced the fall season by holding its first mentor-mentee social of the year on Sunday, Sept. 28 at Director of PRogressive Image (PRi) Nick Hebert’s home.
The mentor-mentee program that ISU PRSSA offers allows new members to feel comfortable while adjusting to both their classes and ISU PRSSA. Mentors offer guidance to familiarize their mentee with the public relations industry and professional development opportunities.
Attendees enjoyed sitting around a bonfire, eating grilled food, and familiarizing themselves with their mentees and mentors outside of Chapter meetings at a personal level.
The event was held in an enjoyable, relaxed environment.
“My favorite part of the social was getting to know the other mentees and mentors and talking to them about public relations and everyday things,” said freshman mentee Caitlin O’Donovan.
Everyone had a great time and is excited to attend more mentor-mentee socials throughout the year. Most importantly, as members of ISU PRSSA, we look forward to growing as professionals in the Chapter this year and beyond.
