Chief External Affairs Officer
Meet our Chief External Affairs Officer for 2019, Mariah Pack! Mariah is a junior from Albertville, AL, majoring in Nursing Science.
Q: Why did you choose to study Nursing?
A: For as long as I can remember, I’ve known I wanted to help people through some of the toughest times of their lives. Nursing has opened so many doors for me to truly see how amazing people are. I’ve talked with people who are facing unimaginable circumstances and still have hope and kindness in their hearts. For me, being able to lend a hand or just simply listen to someone during a tough time sounds like the perfect job! Nursing definitely isn’t easy, but the people I hope to one day impact always make it worth it!
Q: Are you involved in anything else on campus?
A: Alongside my position in Theta, I am also a Project Coordinator for The Big Event and serve on their Operations Committee. I was lucky enough to serve as an SOS Orientation Leader last summer and spend my Christmas break serving with Alternative Student Breaks. I have also been inducted into the Phi Eta Sigma, an honor society recognizing academic excellence during a student’s freshman year.
Q: What does Theta mean to you?
A: Theta has always been a place where I feel celebrated and incredibly loved. The girls who are there for me whenever I’ve had a tough test week or an exhausting clinical are the same girls who are first to cheer me on whenever I accomplish something new. Theta has brought me some of my very best friends that I know I will still be relying on well after our four years here at Auburn are long gone!
