Which class has been your favorite at Auburn so far?
I loved Financial Accounting (ACCT 2110)! It was my first accounting class and made me want to minor in it. I would do homework and study for fun because of how much I enjoyed journal entries.
What is the best technology-based resource at Auburn?
Auburn offers so many technological resources, but I believe the online software (Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe, etc.) have been the most beneficial to me. You can access them wherever you are if you have your Auburn username and password.
What do you wish someone had told you before you started as a student at Auburn?
I wish someone would have pushed me to become more involved. The transition into college is different for everyone but making connections and becoming involved allows you to meet people that are experiencing the same feelings as you. Plus, you make lifelong friends and memories.
Where are your favorite places to study on campus?
I love studying in the Student Involvement Suite on the third floor of the student center. It is a quiet place to sit and you're only a stairwell away from Chick-Fil-A.
Have you been able to maintain your social and academic involvement during the COVID pandemic?
Yes! Auburn has been so adaptable for its students during the COVID pandemic and the transition to online classes/meetings has been so smooth. All my teachers and involvement leaders have gone the extra mile to ensure their students are provided with ample online work opportunities and all the tools they need to succeed.
