"My involvement in PRSSA has opened many doors in my educational experience at Butler as well as for my professional future. The networking opportunities through PRSSA allowed me to choose from a pool of rewarding internships, one being the American College of Sports Medicine."

Butler's Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter provides professional and leadership development opportunities, allowing students to apply classroom theories and methods prior to graduation. The chapter also invites notable public relations professionals from the community to share their expertise with students.

Indianapolis chapters of the Public Relations Society of America, Women in Communications, Inc., the International Association of Business Communicators and the Society of Professional Journalists welcome students as members and provide networking and mentoring opportunities to them as emerging professionals.

For students interested in a career in advertising or marketing, ADrenaline, Butler's Ad Club chapter, provides an experiential learning environment that replicates work in an advertising agency. ADrenaline members hone their advertising, marketing and audience-focused problem-solving skills by participating in the American Advertising Federation's National Student Advertising Competition and developing ad campaigns and marketing materials that address the communication needs of their clients.
