Message from the Dean of Students Johnny Green
Dear Auburn Students,
In light of the recent loss of a member of the Auburn family, our own Lauren Burk, who was tragically killed on Tuesday, I thought it important that I send you a quick note.
First, let me express my deep condolences to Lauren’s family and our friends in her Georgia community. Many of you have shared your heartfelt prayers for their strength through this ordeal. To Lauren’s sorority sisters, we pray for you who were extended sisters to her. Lauren will remain special in our memory, and so many of you are already working on ways to commemorate her.
I want to remind all of you to please be aware of your surroundings at ALL times, both on campus and off, and if you are traveling at night use the buddy system. We’ll continue to be vigilant in our efforts to ensure your safety, but we want you to take that responsibility for yourself, too.
We have counseling available, and if you would like to speak to me, I am clearing my calendar to meet with any who need to talk. You are my highest priority, and I want you to be able to work through this tragedy with all the support you need.
Your Dean of Students,
Johnny GreenMessage from Auburn University President Dr. Jay Gogue
"We are so saddened by this situation, words simply aren't adequate. This is a close-knit community that rarely experiences such a tragedy, so our heartfelt prayers and thoughts go out to those in Lauren's community in Marietta, and especially to her family."
