Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Being from Texas, a common question I've been asked is "Why Auburn?". While the short answer typically involves the famous saying because "it's the Loveliest Village on the Plains," my reasons have much deeper roots. Growing up, my family treated the Iron Bowl as though it was an additional holiday between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The first time I came to visit the campus, it automatically felt like home. Unless you're from here, it's truthfully a difficult feeling to put into words. Spend an afternoon sitting on Samford Park eating a popsicle while watching future, little Tigers run around screaming "War Eagle" and you'll understand this better. Auburn has given me some of the best years of my life and the necessary tools to go out into the world with a strong work ethic and a compassion to help others.
This upcoming May, I will graduate with a bachelors degree in public relations along with a minor in business. Auburn has been consistently ranked as a top 50 public university by multiple scholarly publications and news outlets. In 2016, Auburn was ranked the top university in Alabama and #53 nationally.
