Behind the Scenes @Pegasus
Many of my friends, family, and teachers wonder why I enjoy working in the Pegasus office so much; especially when I’m just helping with marketing and PR for the school on a regular basis. I can honestly say while there is a laundry list of reasons I enjoy, or really LOVE, working for Pegasus, my top one is the ability to see the behind the scenes of OU. This year marks the 100-year anniversary of Oglethorpe being here on Peachtree Road, something I’m extremely excited to be able to celebrate and see in action here on campus. For many schools […]

What are they saying about Pegasus?
I have been so impressed with the work that our students at Pegasus have produced. It’s of a professional quality in every way. Pegasus is a terrific example of connecting the liberal arts to real world experience, something Oglethorpe does very well.Dr. Larry Schall, President of Oglethorpe University
Pegasus is…where students can obtain academic credit while trying out what it’s like to work in an agency. The feedback from students is very positive and most feel that they have more opportunities to try out new skills than if they worked for an outside employer. Well worth your time if you want to gain an edge in the communications field.Dr. Robin Brandt, Director , Professional Development, A_LAB
I am impressed with the student agency’s mission. As a former public relations minor, I wish I had the hands-on experience they are getting. A recent blog piece was written on my Storm Sandy efforts and it read beautifully. So much so that more donations kept piling in! The Office of Special Events is also excited for the unveiling of a new and improved Special Events website that we could not complete without their guidance and support.Sharon Moskowitz '82, Director of Special Events at Oglethorpe University
