Sarah Farmer
Communications Editor

Day Job:
The majority of my time is spent online managing the Auburn University social media platforms. I also write and edit news releases, featured stories and other various publications. I enjoy coordinating with our campus communicators based in the colleges and departments on campus, and cover the College of Education, the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of Sustainability as my main beats. I'm a 2010 Auburn alumna and enjoy being able to use my journalism degree daily!

Favorite Auburn Experience:
My husband Luke and I enjoy traveling with friends and family to watch the Auburn Tigers play football! The most memorable road trip we've taken was for the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. I joined Luke and two of his family members on a 48-hour road trip across the country. We split up the first 24 hours of the trip over two days so we could sightsee on our way to Arizona, but after the game ended and we celebrated Auburn's amazing 22-19 win over Oregon, we had to head straight to our rental van to begin the journey back.

I had the first shift of driving us home, and I remember watching the sunset as we left Arizona and seeing the sunrise in Texas before I handed over the wheel. I think pure happiness (and a 5-hour energy drink) helped me get through that drive, but we were back in Auburn within 24 hours and I was back at work the next morning!

I wouldn't trade that experience for anything, but that's a drive I'll never make again in my lifetime. I'm definitely flying next time…

Interests:
Outside of the office, I enjoy staying active outdoors and running. In 2013, I ran my first 5k in 2013, my first 10K in 2014, my first half-marathon in 2015 and a full marathon in 2017. I run to clear my mind throughout the week and the best part of running is still the part when it's over.

I also have an adorable mutt named Charli whom I love dearly. I rescued her in 2010 after she was found in a ditch and I couldn't have asked for a better companion in life! She's a big baby who loves peanut butter, bananas and sleep.
