WEEK AT A GLANCE
NAME: Jonathan Lillebo
HOMETOWN: Argo, Alabama
POSITION: President- Organic Garden Club
FAVORITE INVOLVEMENT MEMORY:My favorite involvement memory was participating in the Welcome Back Cookout that the Organic Garden Club hosts at the beginning of the Spring and Fall semesters. Seeing all of the people that I have been gardening with during the previous semester, along with the new faces that show up is so exciting. I feel that it represents where we have been as a club and where we are going. And it's always nice to have a meal with friends!
WHY TO GET INVOLVED: Getting involved with a campus organization makes a huge difference in your college experience. Whether it's an organization within your department or a more general organization (like the Organic Garden Club), you will have time outside the classroom to make connections with your peers and build relationships around a shared interest. These are the moments you take with you when you leave Auburn.
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.
