Two-A-Days with Mike Reynolds
Last Updated 5 Year(s) ago
Mike Reynolds, executive director of Auburn University’s Student Financial Services, is also an advisor to Auburn’s beloved mascot Aubie the Tiger. As an active member of the Recreation and Wellness Center (he works out twice a day!), Mike answers our burning questions.
Just what an enjoyment it is to have a facility like this – so clean and accessible – the staff are so friendly and helpful. There is always something you can do. Just walking on the track watching the students is worth a visit.
Join immediately! I consider it a perk for working at Auburn University, and the cost is so minimal.
Most know I have a very high metabolism, so they always remark it is no surprise that I work out and work out often. I usually go to The Rec two times a day -- once at lunch and then again after work.
To keep going to the gym. My father passed away at age 55. I am that age now so my goal is to stay as healthy and active as possible.
Well, this year both my daughters are getting married. One daughter in April, and the other in June. They are two of my most prized possessions, so I want to look as good as possible when I give them away to their future husbands.
With so many health issues today, cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc., I believe people want to take whatever precautions they can to fight against these aliments.
Assisting students in achieving their higher education goals. I know what a special place Auburn University is. I went here and loved it, and I like to help others who want this special experience.
A glass of chardonnay!
Dancing. My dad was a fabulous dancer and I inherited this talent from him. When the music starts, my feet just sort of know what to do!
I believe nothing is a mistake if you learn from it. I try not to make a habit of repeating things that did not have the positive result I expected.
Having to euthanize our 11-year-old Shih Tzu when all hope for her recovery was lost. Best for her, traumatic for me.
To Kill a Mockingbird
Auburn is more than a place, more than a university, more than people, more than family, more than oak trees. Auburn is a state of mind. It is calming, nurturing, supportive, lovely, strong, never yielding, but most of all, Auburn produces Auburn men and women who keep a unique family-oriented state of mind going strong! I believe in AUBURN and LOVE IT!!!
The students-- both friends of Aubie and directors of the Aubie Program. The Aubie Program is different from other mascot programs because it is run by the SGA. The Aubie Program belongs to the students of Auburn University. All students have the opportunity to participate in Aubie committee functions on Tuesday nights before home football games.
It is special to watch students grow in their roles. The Aubie Program is like a huge corporation guided by Head Aubie as CEO. An administrative support staff made up of friends of Aubie handle specific functions of the program from marketing, to film production, to operations. Directors of Aubie have specific functions as well, such as scheduling, production, and Aubie committee oversight. I like to think by the time students leave the program, they are ready for the real world and money-making decisions.
