Purdue University Dance Marathon 2021: Maureen Van Matre Spotlight

Name: Maureen Van Matre

Year: Freshman

Major: College of Science

When did you join?

I joined this fall.


Why did you join?

I joined mainly because of the philanthropic organization that they are involved with. When I found out it was with Riley’s, it just really touched close to home because I want to work with kids because I want to go into health care and it’s something I want to be involved with.


What’s your favorite part of being a part of PUDM?

My favorite part so far has just been being a part of the morale track this year and being able to be around other people who have similar passions for helping people and want to make a difference in these children’s lives. 


How do you plan to stay awake?

With just some coffee, staying motivated and remembering why I’m here.
