Everyone treasures and dreads the power that comes with being handed an aux cord when in a car full of friends.

Hey Pilots, Natalie here. As The Beacon’s community engagement editor, I am always looking for new ways to engage with the amazing community here on campus. That said, I’m excited to introduce a brand-new column in The Beacon this year: What’s UP with Natalie. This recurring column will cover all things UP, from club spotlights — giving students some new ways to get involved on campus — to other fun or relevant topics I think the community would enjoy.
For my first column, I sat down with some officers from UP’s chapter of Circle K International, a student-run service group on campus, to learn more about who they are, what they do and how UP students can get involved.

On Jan. 13, 2018 at 6:30 a.m., my alarm went off. Waking up this early on a weekend is very rare, considering I love “beauty rest;” however, I had to make it to my basketball game.
I put on my uniform, threw my hair in a ponytail then grabbed my water and bag. I usually hug my family before going anywhere, except today everyone was sleeping and I figured I would see them in an hour. I let them sleep.
