Alumni Success Story

A Message from Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow

By Katrina Aubry

Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is a student group that plays an important role in student philanthropy and engagement throughout the university. Members of STAT acquire real work knowledge and experience in fundraising, marketing, event planning, project management and more.

STAT is open to all class years and members join for various reasons. Some include wanting to meet people, expanding their network, planning fun events, and bringing together students to give back to AU. Lex Arnell, SOC-SPA/BA '18, SPA/MPA '18, joined STAT because she wanted to be a part of something that would build relationships within the AU community. Lex mentions, "I love STAT because it's a way to build my network and better prepare me when I enter 'the real world.'"

Last year's STAT co-chair, Alison Donovan, SPA/BA '17, remembers Senior Celebration, an event that she planned last year. "Last year when we were at Breadsoda for the Senior Celebration, I remember meeting so many people with interesting stories and futures ahead of them... and that would not have been possible if STAT had not been there to plan that awesome tradition."
