Meet Cassidy Graves: Yodeling alum with 1.4 million TikTok followers
Finding your niche in social media can be a challenging task for anyone, let alone a person with a 1.4 million-follower base. For Austin Peay State University alumna Cassidy Graves, this is the case on the increasingly popular platform, TikTok.
After downloading the TikTok app around November 2019, Graves reluctantly posted a video, thinking that not many viewers would see it. She had no followers at the time.
Instead, it went viral, almost overnight.

Don’t forget to power down before going home
As students and faculty prepare for the upcoming winter break at Austin Peay State University, a new internal campaign is asking them to help conserve energy before they leave.
Last year, APSU saved $1,000 every day through its conservation efforts, which translates to the electricity used by four households for an entire year.
Before leaving campus, students living in residence halls are asked to:
- Unplug all electronics.
- Empty and unplug refrigerators.
- Turn the thermostat to the lowest setting.
- Close the blinds in their rooms.
Faculty members also were asked to power down their offices for the winter break. The University will close on Wednesday, December 23rd, for the winter holiday and reopen Jan. 4, but many faculty and students leave campus shortly after commencement on December 11th-12th.
