Gregory Pogue, Business Administration Major

Name: Gregory Pogue, Alumnus
Major: Business Administration
Hometown: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Fact: I was President of Phi Beta Lambda at Belhaven.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... I was initially attracted by the opportunity to play football. As I investigated that opportunity more thoroughly, I became aware of the school's excellent academic reputation and decided it would be a great place to receive a college degree and pursue my dream of being a college athlete.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... I had excellent relationships with my Head Football Coach Don Lee and Business professors Dr. William Penn and Dr. Randy Russ. It is difficult to choose between these men, because they were all extremely interested in my success and had a significant influence on my life.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I was able to receive an MBA from the University of Mississippi. I am currently employed as a Portfolio Manager by The Metropolitan Bank in Ridgeland, Mississippi.

One word to describe your experience at Belhaven: Rewarding
