When I arrived at Auburn University in the fall of 2012, I decided that joining the honors college would be a worthwhile investment of my time and effort.
Besides holding me to maintaining a 3.4 GPA or higher, the honors college has given me the opportunity to be exposed to many areas of knowledge and culture through more in-depth classes and enrichment experiences.

If I was down to my last dollar, I would spend it on public relations.

After studying biomedical science for a year and a half, I decided to change my major and join the PR program.
I was attracted by the versatility that a PR degree offers because I am interested in so many different fields and aspects of life. You can read more about my journey and why I chose PR here.

To go along with my major in public relations, I decided to minor in business and Spanish.
I feel that pairing public relations with business makes a lot of sense seeing as the two go hand in hand. I have been equipped with a more well-rounded body of knowledge than I would have had with courses in just one or the other, so I can bring more perspective to any team.

Learning a foreign language and the culture that goes with it is one of the most useful things we can do to broaden the empathy and imaginative sympathy and cultural outlook of children.

Michael Gove
I decided to indulge my love of language and culture by earning a minor in Spanish language.
My Spanish minor and the cultural and linguistic knowledge I have gained have made me a more well rounded and cultured student, citizen and future employee.
