Which class has been your favorite at Auburn so far?
My favorite class at Auburn so far has been cognitive psychology. It is fascinating to learn about how our brains process information.
What is the best technology-based resource at Auburn?
I would say the best technology-based resource that Auburn provides is AU access. Pretty much anything you would need at Auburn is compiled right there for easy access.
What do you wish someone had told you before you started as a student at Auburn?
I wish someone would have told me about all the different resources and involvement opportunities that are available at Auburn. I feel like I am discovering something new every day that I wish I had found the first year I came to Auburn. It is so incredibly rewarding to get involved on campus, especially now when we have been denied social interaction for such a long period of time.
Where are your favorite places to study on campus?
My favorite place to study has been Haley Center. It has a nice quiet location for me to get homework done between classes.
How you been able to maintain your social and academic involvement during the COVID pandemic?
I have continued to get involved by finding online volunteer opportunities that best fit me. While we cannot always physically see each other, the next best thing for me has been to utilize zoom and finding activities that we can do together from a distance. The pandemic has allowed me to really focus on my schoolwork and get ahead whenever possible.
