Lindenwood junior Molly Tiemeyer, a business administration major with an emphasis in management, is about to wrap up her first semester as an official Cabbie.
“For my first semester here I lived in a dorm, and I didn’t know anyone because I came from Houston,” Tiemeyer said. “I started to go to the CAB events, and the members were so nice. Since I want to go into event planning, I asked if I could help and attend their meetings, and that’s how this all started.”
The 22-year-old Houston, Texas, native transferred to Lindenwood last January. Her family, which consists of 1o siblings, made the move to O’Fallon, Missouri, this past July.
They have become extremely involved at Lindenwood. Students often spot her younger brother or sister assisting with Campus Activities Board events or hanging out in the Student Involvement office with the other members.
The Tiemeyers even took home the title of “2018: Family of the Year” at this fall’s Family Day.
When Tiemeyer isn’t organizing campus events through CAB, she’s either working at her church or The Morgan School, a day care. She is also the president of the newfound Lindenwood Commuter Club. Kelsey Gross, Executive Event Coordinator for CAB, holds the position of vice president.
Aside from those responsibilities, she also is working online to become a certified wedding planner in preparation for her sister’s upcoming nuptials and to gain more experience for the future.
Tiemeyer credits her involvement with CAB for pushing her out of her comfort zone and becoming more active on campus.
“At the school I went to previously, I wasn’t in any clubs or involved in much,” she said. “Now I’m at all the events and talking to so many people; it definitely gives you an opportunity to put yourself more out there.”
She plans to graduate next December and looks forward to having a successful career in event planning.
