Darden McDougal

Admissions Marketing Coordinator


The Admissions Marketing Coordinator position is new, which has created some interesting opportunities so far. My role in the admissions department stands out as I act as a liaison for PR and Marketing, as well as managing social media accounts and reaching out to students.

B.A. - Auburn University, Major in Public Relations, Minor in Psychology

Originally from Alabama, I met my husband in 2017, while in college at Auburn University. He was in basic training in Columbus, GA, but shortly after was stationed on Fort Campbell. Soon after I graduated in 2020, I moved to Clarksville, TN, where we got married and bought a home.

My prior experience is primarily in social media and brand management. Before moving to Tennessee, I worked for three years managing social media and creating content for an online retail company. In the months between my graduation and move to Clarksville, I managed the branding for a radio station and media conglomerate in my hometown of Sylacauga, AL.

I have so far immensely enjoyed my role at APSU. I am thrilled to expand my skillset, and explore the beautiful city of Clarksville. Let's go Peay!
