A Road Less Traveled

We all experience moments in our lives that leave us changed, forever marked and forever transformed.

Dec. 15, 2000, shaped the life of Anna Wells, an Auburn University education major. This was the day two proud parents welcomed Robin Hobbs, their new baby girl, into the world.

Opportunities of a Lifetime at the College of Agriculture

A Metaphor for the College of Agriculture

As the young brown-eyed boy placed each domino piece with care, his hands began to tremble and sweat. Beads began to form on his forehead. He knew that with each piece took him one piece closer to his goal of finishing his masterpiece. He patiently and diligently finished, not only accomplishing his goal, but with a sense of pride.

The boy and the domino game, describes a metaphor of what a senior in high school may be facing.… Continue

While one works on giving the gift of a child to a loving, responsible home, another will provide a listening ear to a father of two struggling with a methamphetamine addiction.

Emily Myers, Director of Sociology, Anthropology… Continue

I Love the Auburn School of Nursing!

There are many reasons why people decide to go to nursing school. For Ellen Sykes, this desire began when she was 13 years old. She was diagnosed with leukemia when she was in eighth grade, and for the next two and a half years, she had a great deal of contact with nurses. Throughout that experience, she began to realize that the nursing profession was one she could make a connection with. She said because her nurses were so great when she needed their help, she wanted to be able to help others… Continue
