Engage Your Dreams

Welcome back! We had a wonderfully productive summer here in Cater Hall and the Honors College staff is eager to hear about your summer adventures and your plans for the coming year.

This year is particularly special for us. Not only did our incoming class grow by 17% this year, but we are also celebrating the 40thanniversary of the Auburn University Honors College. I am so proud of the legacy of academic excellence and service leadership that we are building together in the classroom, in our communities, and around the globe. We hope to see all of you at the anniversary tailgate on Saturday, September 14 for food, fun, and the chance to build wonderful memories with your fellow Honors students and alumni. This is a time to celebrate our accomplishments - it promises to be an unforgettable event!

In recognition of this historic year for the Honors College, I encourage us all to ENGAGE our dreams to the fullest. Engaging our dreams requires that we dare to pursue the opportunities and experiences that fire our imaginations, even when they seem daunting. What new opportunities to engage your dreams might you pursue? Are there research, internship, or service opportunities that you would like to investigate? Do you have dreams of traveling abroad or pursuing a nationally prestigious scholarship or fellowship? Are you eager to develop your leadership skills or begin preparing for graduate school or the job market?

The Honors College staff and faculty can help you engage with any of these opportunities to push yourself to higher heights. I wish you all a wonderful start of the academic year. If I can ever be of service, please never hesitate to contact me via email or by phone (334-844-5860). I hope that you will also follow me on Instagram @auhonorsdir.

War Eagle & Honor Your Dreams,
