Love and Honor Story Project Honors Aidan McGaughy

Aidan McGaughyFebruary's Love and Honor Story Project recipient, Aidan McGaughy, exemplifies Miami's Code of Love and Honor. McGaughy is a senior double majoring in Information Systems and Analytics and Marketing. Along with his studies, he has spent the majority of his time at Miami giving back to his fellow students.

In addition to being a member of the business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi, Aidan also served as president of the Business Student Advisory Council (BSAC). McGaughy used his position as president of BSAC to ensure that every member’s voice was heard, not just the loudest ones. According to McGaughy's peers, his leadership style is thoughtful, encouraging, and intentional. He aims to create meaningful change through the work he does.

McGaughy has served as a mentor to many students during his time at Miami. During his sophomore and junior years, McGaughy was a Resident Assistant (RA) and provided guidance to his residents through their early college years. He also assisted with rigorous classes, such as Business Legal Studies, as an Undergraduate Associate (UA). He loves being the person that students can talk to when they have a problem or want advice. 

Another passion of McGaughy’s is hockey. He currently plays on two intramural hockey teams. His love for the sport doesn't stop with himself; he volunteers at his local rink, helping children learn the fundamentals of the game. McGaughy hopes to continue sharing his love for hockey with others in the future. His goal is to run a program similar to Try Hockey for Free - an organization that aims to introduce the sport to children from low-income backgrounds.

It is evident from McGaughy's actions that he truly cares about his Miami classmates and his community. He lives by the Code of Love and Honor every day by showing up and supporting people.
