2016 Director of Social Media Content & Director of Social Media Graphics

Meet your 2016 Director of Social Media Content, Cassie Sadie!

Cassie is a freshman from Montgomery, Alabama, studying Public Relations.

And meet your 2016 Director of Social Media Graphics, Connely Doize!

Connely is a freshman from Atlanta, Georgia, majoring in English and minoring in fine arts and accounting. 

Together, they do social media for Auburn Panhellenic. Cassie does the posting- posting to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter as well as writing the blogs. Connely makes the graphics that are posted such as those in presidential spotlights, the Greek Sing Photo Competition, and different promotions for anything Panhellenic. Their combined creativity leads to what goes out on the different platforms.

If Cassie were embodied in a hashtag, it would probably be #CassieProbz. If you've ever met her, you understand why as she somehow manages to bring forth unique and often humorous "problems." If she were a form of social media, she would be Snapchat stories as her daily adventures are worth showing in little snippets. 

If Connely described herself in a hashtag, it would most likely be #NapLife because 95% of the time, if she's not in class or doing something Panhellenic related, she's probably napping. If she were a social media platform, she would be be Instagram because she enjoys editing pictures and often does so for Panhellenic.

Keep up with Panhellenic on social media!

Kappa Kappa Gamma's Kappa Karnival

On April 17, the ladies of Kappa Kappa Gamma hosted Kappa Karnival on the greenspace.

At the "Karnival," they had multiple game stations where you could win prizes. One of the Kappas works for Kendra Scott and was able to give beautiful jewelry for prizes at some of the games.

They also had inflatables, a moon bounce and a rock climbing wall. Snacks included cotton candy, popcorn, and snow cones. Face painting and crafts were available.

They had a nice boutique there with cute clothes and accessories. A MaryKay cosmetic consultant, was in attendance as well as a Marketing branch of HBO. Even Aubie came to hang out and be a part of the fun!

This was their first time having this event, and they chose it wanting a family event to embrace how Auburn is truly a family. 

Ultimately, the "Karnival" benefitted Reading is Fundamental and The Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation. 

The ladies of Kappa and all in attendance had a blast, and we can't wait for this to become a tradition!

2016 Presidential Spotlight: Meredith Davies of Sigma Kappa

Meet Meredith Davies, Sigma Kappa's 2016 president. Meredith is a junior from Fairhope, Alabama, majoring in political science. Besides serving as Sigma Kappa's president, she has been involved in ROTC Kadettes and the Secular Student Union. We asked her about herself, and she said:

Describe your sorority in three words.
Diverse, eccentric, and supportive.

What is one thing you couldn't live without?

Funniest recruitment memory?
When I was going through recruitment, I was so nervous during the first Ice Water Tea party that my hand was shaking violently, and I spilled water all over myself.

Current Netflix addiction?
Mr. Robot. It's so intriguing and underrated right now, bus as more seasons are released, I think it will start gaining the attention it deserves.

Favorite Auburn tradition?
I always love watching the band run out onto the field at the beginning of football games, especially when the drum majors throw their mace in to the ground. Chills, man.
