Students in the Department of Communication at the University of South Alabama can participate in the following organizations: American Advertising Federation, Public Relations Student Society of America and Lambda Pi Eta.
American Advertising Federation
Have a passion for advertising? So do we! We're a group of students (along with a few faculty members) who love Advertising and decided "Hey, lets get a club going." And here we are! We provide an energetic, fun and productive environment for students who are interested in the field of Advertising. Through membership with this club we hope to prepare our members for life after college, or as others put it, the real world (the non-MTV version).

Public Relations Student Society of America
Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. We serve our members by enhancing their knowledge of public relations and providing access to professional development opportunities. We serve the public relations profession by helping develop highly qualified, well-prepared professionals. We seek to advance the public relations profession by nurturing generations of future professionals, advocating rigorous academic standards for public relations education and withholding the highest ethical principles and diversity in the profession.
