Interview with the 2020 Homecoming Duke

Homecoming is a time to show school spirit and celebrate the people of Augusta University. We had the opportunity to speak with the former 2020 Homecoming Duke and have him tell us a little bit about himself.

Rakeem Littles is originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He is a business marketing major and aspires to have his own business one day.

He is involved in several organizations on campus, including SAC, SGA, AAMI, and the CREW. He is also on the cross country and track team. He started running track in 7th grade. “I saw my sister doing it and I wanted to do it too!”

Once he graduates, he would like to get a position working in advertising. Currently, he is working on his own business as an entrepreneur. “I would like to have a networking agency and help companies spot potential talent. I would be the middle man connecting companies with candidates.”

Rakeem decided to run for 2020 Homecoming Duke, because “it provided a platform to meet and interact with a lot of different people. Homecoming itself shows an image of the school and I wanted to help reflect that!”

In his spare time, he enjoys handing out with friends, new adventures, new experiences and taking risks.
