He served as an Orientation Advisor for the class of 2016, was an event programming intern with the Department of Student Life in the College Union, and currently works for Geneseo Late Knight Programs & Activities.

Cassie Allen '14, a French and Economics double major, began her philanthropy track at Geneseo's Phonathon pogram - a program designed to keep in contact with alumni, learn about their experiences, and encourage to give back to their alma mater. Having loved this experience, she felt she needed to do more. The Make Your Mark! campaign proved to be perfect for Cassie. Her love for Geneseo complemented with her philanthropy experience led to a perfect match. Cassie is also very active across campus. She belongs to Delta Phi Epsilon sorority, in which she undertook many leaderhsip positions such as Structured Recruitment Chair and Vice President of Programming, to name a few. She has also taken advantage of Geneseo's study abroad programs twice, spending a summer in Greece and a semester in France!
With the help of the Student Philanthropy Committee, this senior duo is hoping to increase school spirit while procuring much needed additional funds to Geneseo. Their goal is to create fun events designed to bring students together on campus and in the community that reflect on all of the positive impacts Geneseo has given its students. They are excited to join their classmates in celebrating and commemorating their time at Geneseo while helping to continue opportunities for current and future generations of Geneseo students!
