"One piece of advice I’d give to a freshman is don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and speak up! Whether it be asking a question in class or introducing yourself to a new friend or even interviewing for an organization, making yourself known on campus can go a really long way."

"Simply put, Auburn’s College of Liberal Arts is a safe place. You can be completely yourself within an environment that encourages your individuality. Choosing to be a CLA student is choosing to give yourself the gifts of self-expression, personal growth, support, community, education, and inspiration every single day. It just doesn’t get much better than that."
"The CLA classes at Auburn, especially the ones I have experienced, have been so great in seeing how the material applies to our society and world around us. I've loved learning all of the different skills, styles and strategies in my classes and I'm glad to be an Auburn CLA student!"
"My academic advisor has helped me immensely in my time at Auburn. We have planned my classes until my graduation, and she has helped me determine the best major for my future career goal. I also use our CLA Career Services office. I speak with my career counselor at least once a month to ensure that I'm preparing myself correctly for graduate school applications."
"The College of Liberal Arts is unique to other colleges in that it provides students with a versatile education that can be applied to any field. The college teaches students both information as well as critical thinking skills - a combination that enables students to be successful in all endeavors."
"My academic advisor has not only guided me through course selections so that I take classes aligned with my professional goals, but she has also given me career advice and held my hand through my college experience. Because of the guidance of my academic advisor, I'm confident that I'm extremely prepared to not just get a job right out of college, but to excel in it.
"My favorite CLA class thus far would be the LBAR 2010: Liberal Arts Career Prep. Through this class, I updated my resume, created a LinkedIn profile, evaluated various potential career opportunities, interviewed someone in my field of study, and learned several helpful tips that will benefit me after I graduate. I also loved that my class was designed so that everyone in the class had similar majors, which enabled me to meet some of my future classmates."
"My favorite class so far has been Psychology of the Workplace, and it was one of the most interesting classes I've taken. I learned so much about how people interact in a professional setting, what goes into creating a job, and how people actually perform in their jobs. This was a class that piqued my interest in a different area of psychology than what I was previously familiar with, and I think I learned more about people from this class than I had in previous classes!"

"My favorite class was British literature. I enjoyed this class because it allowed for deep discussion and thought regarding the literature we were reading. It also allowed me to draw connections to things outside of the literature itself. Because it was a CLA specific class I was able to get to know my professor well and connect with the other students in the class. I left this class with a broader knowledge of British literature as well as improved critical thinking skills."
