This year ImPRessions is thrilled to have a big increase in members from previous years. Currently, ImPRessions has around 160 members on board, which is a jump from having about 100 last year.

Although a gain in numbers was expected when more clients were added on, the firm isn’t stopping there. ImPRessions is up four accounts since the end of last year to make the new total of thirteen, and the firm is still looking to expand.

When wondering who receives praise for all this success, CEO Devin Hughes does not hesitate to share the glory. “I credit an exciting new batch of clients combined with our extremely supportive returning clients, but also know we wouldn’t be where we are today without the incredible leadership of our account executives and supervisors.”

Even new members know that this gain in membership is a huge step in the right direction for ImPRessions. Junior Justin Lackey, a political science major, thinks ImPRessions is highly beneficial even for those not going into a public relations field.

“ImPRessions is great because people can experience PR even if it’s not your major. You gain a lot from being a member. You get exposure to different backgrounds and a lot of diversity while learning PR at the same time,” said Lackey.  

Lackey’s thoughts are reflected throughout the firm’s associates. Most students want to get involved and may have heard about ImPRessions through the Involvement Fair. Soon after joining though, ImPRessions shows that the organization is much more than just a way to be involved on campus.

“That’s what this organization is all about. I am honored to be supported by a team of executives that I know I can trust to position us as a top-notch student public relations firm,” said Hughes.
