The History of the College of Liberal Arts Student Eminent Society
The College of Liberal Arts Student Eminent Society was founded at Auburn University in February of 2004 to serve as an ambassadorial program for the college. The charter members were selected to be liaisons between the students, faculty and alumni of the College of Liberal Arts and to function as a face for the college. During the Society’s charter year, members assisted with the CLA Golf Scramble and hosted alumni at the college’s annual alumni tailgate. The 2004 group also had the opportunity to meet with the CLA Dean’s Advisory Board to discuss the future of the college. The following class of Eminent Society members attended the Auburn Family Fun Day and helped the college during Camp War Eagle. The 2006 class of Eminent Society members held the first CLA Dean’s Forum which featured presentations by Dean Anna Gramberg and Assistant Dean Constance Relihan. This group also was the first group to host at the College of Liberal Arts Scholarship Banquet and to serve at the Women’s Leadership Institute. Though the Student Eminent Society is young in years, its loyalty and service to the college have built a strong foundation for its future. To be a member of this organization is to uphold the tradition and fortitude of the College of Liberal Arts, the largest college on Auburn’s campus.
