NATALIE MAGNUS

Hometown:
Belvidere, Illinois

UW-L Major/Minor:
ATP Advisor; Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education (M.S. 2013); Psychology/Spanish (B.A. 2010)

Future Goals/Aspirations:
To ensure a world of peace, equality, justice, and truth in the world and myself through my life and actions. And always always ALWAYS be learning. 

Favorite Activity/Hobby:
Mainly-Wakeboarding & Snowboarding. Also anything that allows me to be out in nature and active: mountain biking, waterskiing, hiking, kayaking, camp fires, climbing, playing with my puppies, and many more.

Words to Live By:
There are many, but when considering my future/life outlook I think about this: "A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both."
- Francois Auguste Rene Chateaubriand

Favorite ATP Memory:
Anything & everything from spring 2012! Ryan talking about his experience the morning after habanero spaghetti, Bobby's milk interlude during lunch, Carrie dancing, and every amazing conversation I was fortunate enough to be a part of.  

When I think of Awareness through Performance, I think of...
A change agent which informs everyone who takes in the message of how to be what they wish to see in the world.

Involvement with ATP has had this impact on me:
There are too many to think of in one moment! It has instilled urgency in me to be my best at all times & makes me thinking critically about human interacts. Also, I will now be very picky when choosing a job in Student Affairs because I do not want to settle for anything less than what this incredible group does!
