What advice would you offer other out-of-state students who are considering Auburn?

Auburn has so much to offer. From the outstanding curriculum and facilities, to the organizations and clubs on campus, to the football games, Auburn is one-of-a-kind. Auburn has incredible opportunities for each student to make their time here a truly unique experience.

How has your co-op experience prepared you for your career?

I participated in Auburn’s Cooperative Education Program as a co-op for Eastman Chemical Company. Academically, my co-op provided me with hands-on experience that helped translate what I learned in a textbook to real-life solutions to problems. It also provided familiarity with equipment used in laboratory classes and problems done in class. Professionally, my co-op experience has already opened doors for me in the work force. I now have references and real-life experience before graduating college.

What makes Auburn special?

Every day you run into someone you know, whether it’s on the concourse or in a class. I love that because it reinforces the Auburn Family feel. In addition, I feel like Auburn is a place that you grow to love more and more every day. It’s a place to come back to even after you’ve graduated.
