About Gateway

Gateway was the community newsletter of Pratt Institute published monthly by the Office of Communications, in the Division of Institutional Advancement through spring 2014. For current Pratt-related news, visit the News page on Pratt’s website.



On the lighter side, Pam Halpert (played by Jenna Fischer) from NBC’s The Office has been sporting her Pratt sweatshirt quite a bit lately. As you may recall, a few years back in Season 5, Pam is enrolled at Pratt. Then Jim proposes and the story line veers. It seems Pam likes to wear the old sweatshirt when she is painting. In the episode entitled Vandalism that aired on January 31, Pam is enjoying painting a mural in the warehouse when things go awry:

Pam explains to the camera that she's really enjoying her assignment of working on the warehouse mural—until she sees that it's been defaced. Someone's spray-painted two butts and a "This Sucks" over her work. She's heartbroken and outraged. She gets in the scissor lift and addresses the warehouse crew with a megaphone, asking who perpetrated the crime. The warehouse staff—including the supervisor Val—ignores her.

Pam gathers everyone in the conference room to rally the staff to help her find the mural culprit. Though Pam was hoping to incite a righteous mob, only Dwight and Nellie will help her. Dwight assembles the warehouse team and demands that they draw butts on paper. To learn what happens next go here.
