C-Street Agency: Making its Mark on DSM

In only six months, students at Simpson College have successfully founded the first student-run communication firm in the Greater Des Moines area.

C Street Agency is one of three student-run communication firms in the state. The firm was founded in August of 2017 by faculty advisor Jane Murphy and a handful of public relations students at Simpson.

C Street Agency offers students real world experience and is equipped to help with client communication needs. The firm has already acquired clients such as Murphy Tower Service and Do More Iowa.

“Being involved in C Street [Agency] has granted me the opportunity to improve and gain skills that I never imagined I would be pursuing as a sophomore in college,” said Firm Director, Baillee Furst.

C Street Agency hopes to become the first accredited student-run PR firm in the state through PRSSA in the upcoming years.

C Street is looking for nonprofit organizations and small businesses in the Greater Des Moines Area to work with for the 2018-19 school year. If you or someone you know is looking for low-cost communication work, contact C Street Agency at cstreetagency@gmail.com
