DISCOVER YOUR PATH
WEEK AT A GLANCE
NAME: Katherine Neil
HOMETOWN: Auburn, AL
POSITION: Assistant Station Manager, Eagle eye TV
FAVORITE INVOLVEMENT MEMORY:One of my favorite memories of involvement was spring of my freshman year. There was bad weather on campus, and all of Eagle Eye’s staff had been working for hours reporting the weather conditions, shelters, and the condition of the university. We were tired, but knew it was our role to continue to serve both students and community members, proving the most complete knowledge possible for the sake of safety. During a break between the bad weather, we walked outside and ran into Tim Cook. We were then able to interview him on an iPhone, fittingly. This taught me longevity, a skill I will always remember.
WHY TO GET INVOLVED: Involvement is special as it is a learning lab which cultivates both hands on experience, as well as camaraderie between students. The people you will meet are passionate individuals who will push you, spurring you on to greatness wherever your endeavors lead. Plus, you may meet some of your best friends!
NAME:Auburn University Dance Marathon
NUMBER OF MEMBERS:80
Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement, involving college and high school students at over 450 schools across the country who raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network hospital in their community. Entirely student run and donating 100% of the funds raised directly to local children’s hospitals, Dance Marathons have become a tradition on campus and in the community. Students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and social skills while raising funds in a variety of ways and interacting with children’s hospital patients and families.
Auburn University Dance Marathon is a year-long, campus-wide fundraising effort that culminates in a 12-hour dance marathon to celebrate the money and awareness raised for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The idea behind the marathon is “we dance for those who can’t.” The money Auburn University students raise stays locally to benefit the children’s Piedmont Columbus Regional.
Auburn University Dance Marathon first joined Children’s Miracle Network in 2011. In its five years of existence, AUDM has raised over $1 million total for the kids. AUDM is proud to represent every area of Auburn University’s Campus and community.
