Staff Spotlight: Jaylin Russell

Get to Know WEGL's Program Director!


Year: Senior year, but technically a junior (did the Disney college program spring of 2020) 

Major: Media Studies

Position: Program Director

How did you find out about WEGL?

I found out about WEGL through a mass email that was sent to me the day of the first organizational meeting my freshman year. I got the email like 40 minutes before the meeting, so I ran in the rain just to make it on time to the meeting. It was very dramatic lol 

What made you want to apply for your position?

I have been a part of WEGL since I first started attending Auburn, so about 3 years now. I love the organization and working with other students. Joining staff gives me the opportunity to give back and help improve an organization that welcomed me when I first started going to Auburn and living on my own. I hope that I can make future students feel the same way and feel like they have a place on our campus. 

Favorite WEGL Memory: 

My freshman year as a DJ, the assistant program director sent me an email saying that one of her friends really enjoyed my show and it’s something that I still remember today. It meant a lot she would tell me that and that someone was actually listening and enjoyed my show! It was really sweet and made me feel really good.

Favorite Song Lyric:

 “I thought that I was dreaming when you said you love me” - Frank Ocean: Ivy 

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

I think the Arctic Monkeys’ album, AM, would be the one album I would listen to for the rest of my life. It was the first album I listened to from start to finish without skipping any songs and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire album. I think it also kickstarted my interest in music and discovering new artists.
