Members of Pegasus Creative, Oglethorpe’s student communications agency, recently attended Georgia State University‘s second annual Modern Media Conference as part of our field study internship requirement. The Pegasus team included Twain Carter ’14, Christie Pearce ’15 and me, Lyssa Beck ’14. Also attending were Tali Schroeder ’16, editor of the Stormy Petrel student newspaper, and Debbie Aiken ’12, assistant director in University Communications.
Conference attendees were encouraged to participate in a variety of seminars about journalism, marketing, photography, music, etc. Each seminar was unique and the openness of the speakers was surprising and welcome.
