A Message from the Director


Dear Students, Alumni, and Friends of the Honors College:

Welcome back – I hope everyone had a healthy and happy holiday season!

The spring is always a time of high hopes and dreams fulfilled here in the Honors College. The start of the semester brings with it the selection of our 2022 incoming class. Each year the talent of these classes grows, and we eagerly anticipate the contributions they will make to our campus. Their determination and excitement for the future will undoubtedly energize and inspire our entire community.

We are simultaneously preparing for the graduation of our seniors, who will soon join the esteemed ranks of our Honors College alumni. As I place medals around the necks of our graduates, I always reflect on the story each of them will be able to tell about educational excellence, dedicated service, and the human touch. Their diplomas will testify to their outstanding work in the classroom, lab, field, and archive. Even more importantly, they will testify to their tenacity when faced with uncertain and unfamiliar times.

Both the incoming and graduating classes of 2022 have overcome so much to honor their dreams. I invite you all to renew your support of these extraordinary students by way of our Tiger Giving Day fundraising initiative on February 23. Your support of our mission is more appreciated than ever. This is our opportunity to recognize and reward our students’ dedication, character, and vision.

I wish you a wonderful and healthy spring semester. If I can ever be of service, please never hesitate to contact me via email (tat0004@auburn.edu) or by phone (334-844-5860). I hope that you will also follow me on Instagram @auhonorsdir

Just a reminder Auburn requires everyone to wear face coverings when inside university buildings. The policy applies to all students, faculty, staff and campus visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

Honor Your Dreams and WAR EAGLE!
