FAVORITE INVOLVMENT MEMORY:About a year ago, my friend and I began work on an initiative - the Auburn Intern Housing Initiative. It seeked to linked students who were interning in Washington D.C. to Auburn Alumni who served as host families. In May, we launched our pilot program and this past weekend my team and I had the opportunity to fly to Washington D.C. to assess the success of the program launch and identify program enhancements. On our last evening, we attended a dinner where all of the students and host families gathered. At this gathering we got to hear about the impact this initiative had on the students, and we got to see the joy that hosting a student brought to be host families faces. In this moment, we all saw our vision, which had seemed like a long shot, come to life. Sharing that moment with our team will forever be my favorite memory of student involvement.
WHY TO GET INVOLVED: I would encourage students to get involved because it gives you an opportunity to find community, develop your communication, professional, and critical thinking skills, and to develop service-minded leadership. I believe that it is those things that set Auburn Men and Women apart and that student involvement is one of the best ways to find and fulfill those opportunities.
