Which class has been your favorite taken at Auburn so far?

My favorite class at Auburn has been International Relations of the Middle East with Dr. Crystal. It was very interesting to understand the history and causes of all the unrest in the Middle East, particularly through the lens of someone who has spent time in the Middle East and is fluent in the languages of the countries.


What is the best technology based resource at Auburn?

Although it wasn’t available when I was at Camp War Eagle, as a peer advisor this summer I got to see firsthand how TigerScheduler aids students in picking out their classes. Registration can be a super stressful time, so having a tool that can manage all the different variables is so helpful!


What do you wish someone had told you before you started as a student at Auburn?

Waiting in the Chick-fil-A line isn’t worth it!


Where are your favorite places to study on campus?

The 4th floor of RBD! I used to love to sit with my friends on the 3rd floor social hall, but I am much more productive on the 4th floor with complete silence!


How do you balance your social and academic obligations?

I try to get all my work done at the beginning of the week while I have a ton of motivation to  so I can hang out with friends and do all the fun stuff I want to do!
