Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is a student group that plays an important role in student philanthropy and engagement at American University. Members of STAT acquire real work 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 networks, planning fun events, and bringing together students to give back to AU. Senior Lex Arnell joined STAT because she wanted to help build relationships within the AU community. Lex says, "I love STAT because it's a way to build my network and better prepare me for 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, 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," Alison recalls.
