Get to Know WEGL's Marketing Director!

Year: Senior

Major: Marketing 

Position: Marketing Director

How did you find out about WEGL?

Before even coming to college, I knew I wanted to be involved in student radio. One of my best family friends was involved in Ole Miss's student radio, and after visiting her and seeing how much she enjoyed it, I made a mental note to seek out a similar opportunity when I got to Auburn. Camp War Eagle has a time set apart where student organizations set up tables and have representatives there to tell you about the organization. I spotted WEGL's table, put my e-mail on the list, and the rest is history. 

What made you want to apply to your position?

Before serving as marketing director, I was the music director. Although I enjoyed serving in that position, the former marketing director and I thought our talents would be better fit if we switched positions. So I technically didn't apply to the marketing position, but I knew I wanted to serve WEGL. Being three years into hosting my radio show, I knew I wanted to do more within student radio and also wanted to spend more time with the people in it as well. I love how being involved in WEGL feels purposeful and relaxed at the same time. 

Favorite WEGL memory:

I really can't pinpoint a specific memory with WEGL, but being in the studio during the school week with the staff are moments that make my day and often week. Working my office hours rarely feel like work when I'm hanging out and eating lunch with some of the coolest and most hilarious people on campus. 

Favorite Song Lyric:

"Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're are no friends of mine" - The Safety Dance by Men Without Hats

These lyrics are my favorite because they are pretty good words to live by. If you don't dance and don't want to have fun, I don't want to be friends. Simple as that.

If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

This is a pretty hard question to answer, but I would choose The College Dropout by Kanye West. It is one of my favorite albums, but it would also be a great album to listen to for the rest of your life because if you listen to it in proper song order, it flows and tells a story. Also, each song is pretty different from the next so it gives you plenty of variety, but they also all have soul and authenticity to keep some consistency.
