Public relations students gain experience through participation in the student chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association. FPRA members produce a newsletter for the communication department, Channels, and plan and coordinate a number of events and activities including monthly luncheons, annual pro-am days and internship fairs. Annual department social events include a holiday party and an end-of-the-year celebration.
Each year, the graduating senior with the highest GPA is honored as Communication Student of the Year. In addition, outstanding students in newspaper/magazine journalism, radio and television, public relations and advertising and oral communication are recognized for their accomplishments and service.
