About our Events

Agency/Corporate Tours – We aim to coordinate at least one tour of a local PR agency or corporate communication department per month. Any chapter members are invited to attend. Past tours have included Lola Red, Beehive Strategic Communication, Best Buy, Mall of America, etc. See our upcoming tours in the events schedule above.

Annual Winter Trip – Our chapter takes a trip each winter to a different city. We usually tour four to five agencies or corporate offices and see the local sites! Our trip in 2017 was to Denver and our trip in 2018 was to Atlanta. Let us know if there’s someplace you’d like to go!

Spring Networking Night – Our chapter puts on a networking night at a local restaurant. We invite professionals from different PR and communication industries to network with our students.

Twin Cities Day of Tours – Our chapter spends one full Friday during the spring semester touring three to four local agencies. Last year’s agency visits included Maccabee, Weber Shandwick, Exponent PR and Mirum Agency.

If you have an idea of an agency or company to visit for any of our events, email our event directors, Lydia Crabtree ( ) and Sophia Julio (
