WEEK AT A GLANCE

FAVORITE INVOLVEMENT MEMORY:During my time at Auburn, one of my favorite involvement memories has been attending Southeastern Conference (SEC) Exchange at the University of Kentucky. This conference is a time for the leaders of student governments in the SEC to come together to talk about the work we have done, challenges we have faced, and how we can better serve our respective student bodies. I believe collaboration is so important and this time gave us a chance to put aside our differences and work toward the future!
WHY TO GET INVOLVED: Something that has stuck with me since I came to Auburn is the saying, ‘you will not always remember the meetings you attended, but you will remember the friendships you made.’ I think involvement at Auburn presents the unique opportunity to gain valuable experience that will prepare you for the future, while also providing a support system that will stick with you after graduation. No matter what facet of campus you decide to get involved with, you will find people that will push you to be the best version of yourself.
