University Honors & Involvement

I arrived at Auburn with the privilege of having an Auburn Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship post high school graduation in 2012. I have been a part of the Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society(2013-2014) and the Auburn Student Alumni Association(2012-2013).

I believe in Auburn and love it.

I was a third generation Auburn student, and a proud Auburn fan since birth. I grew up coming to the plains on game day weekends, and I fell in love with the Auburn Family at a young age. My time at the College of Liberal Arts here has taught me so much about myself, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
