NAME: Mayowa Akisanya
HOMETOWN: Lagos, Nigeria
POSITION: ISO Treasurer
FAVORITE INVOLVEMENT MEMORY:LeaderShape Training
WHY TO GET INVOLVED: I got involved in ISO because I am an international student myself, and I know the process it took me to settle into Auburn University coming from a country of different culture and tradition. So, I decided to join ISO to help other students coming into the university bridge the gap between them and domestic students and make them better members of the university, and most importantly be able to help any students in need.
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 Hospital at Midtown Medical Center at Columbus Regional Health.
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.
