Student organizations expand students' horizons and connect them to the professional worlds. Our students are members of several organizations, including:
The Scripps Howard School has a long-standing reputation for quality education and innovation. BRAND757 is the first for-profit, student-run public relations and brand agency serving the Hampton Roads community. This latest initiative for public relations and strategic communication students also meets that high bar. Follow us on Twitter.
Kappa Tau Alpha:
Founded in 1910 at the University of Missouri, this is the national honor society in journalism and mass communication. The Hampton University Chapter was chartered in 1981. Its purpose is to recognize and encourage outstanding scholarship and good character among students. Membership is restricted to junior and seniors who rank in the upper 10 percent of their class.
National Association of Black Journalists:
This is the leading organization of African-American journalists and communications professionals. Our students participate in special NABJ programs through a partnership funded by the Scripps Howard Foundation.
Public Relations Society of America:
In 2001, a chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America was approved by the national organization of public relations professionals. It was the culmination of two years work by a team of public relations students and their professor, Rosalynne Whitaker-Heck. The PRSSA charter chapter provides our public relations students with exciting opportunities for internships, conferences, competitions and networking.
