Jack Janik

Major: Mechanical Engineering | Minor: Tribology & Lubrication Studies


Hometown: Katy, Texas

My name is Jack Janik and I am from Katy, Texas. In my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, running, lake activities and camping. I am very involved on campus in a variety of organizations such as Greek Life, Engineering Summer Camps, Honors Serves, and Honors Ambassadors. I encourage everyone to get involved with Honors because of the many avenues for success it provides and the opportunity to become a well-rounded leader on campus. 

Sara Matthews

Major: Biomedical Sciences, Neuroscience


Hometown: Selma, Alabama

The Honors College has been Auburn’s biggest resource to me since my very first day as a freshman. I not only met my closest friends through the Honors College but was also able to transition easily into the college workload with help from advisors and peers. This team-like aspect is what I enjoy most about the Honors College. With the same goal of success in mind, students and faculty are both willing to assist anyone who may be lost or just needs someone to talk with.

Riley Locke

Major: Software Engineering | Minor: Business-Engineering Technology


Hometown: Clanton, Alabama

I am from a small town in the middle of the state called Clanton, Alabama. Growing up, I always enjoyed problem solving and challenging myself to learn more. That is why I thought the Honors College would be a good fit for me. I also like to surround myself with like-minded individuals who will push me to work harder. Within the Honors College, I have found just that and more. Through programs like the Week of Service and Honors Serves, I have found lifelong friends who also have a heart for service. I am incredibly grateful for the Honors classes, as most of my Honors classes end up being some of my favorites.

Megan Watkins

Major: Health Services Administration, Political Science | Minor: Business


Hometown: Gurley, Alabama

My name is Megan Watkins and I am from Gurley, Alabama. My experience with the Honors College has been invaluable, I have always felt welcomed by our diverse community of high-achieving students. There has been no greater privilege than being able to serve the Auburn family, which I have been able to directly achieve through my time with the Honors College. Whether I am participating in a service project through Honors Serves or organizing events with Honors Congress, there have been a variety of high-impact involvement opportunities I have been able to get plugged into. At the end of the day, the Honors College is a family and community who supports one another unconditionally. War Eagle!

Lora Bozeman

Major: Biomedical Sciences, Neuroscience


Hometown: Beulah, Alabama

My name is Lora Bozeman and I’m from Beulah, AL. The Honors College has had a profound impact on my Auburn experience both academically and socially, providing me with the support and environment needed to learn and grow both as a student and an individual. It has encouraged me to become more involved both within the Honors College and beyond, allowing me to become a more well-rounded student and leader. It has allowed me to be surrounded by a diverse group of driven individuals that have helped steer me toward success.

Molly Grubb

Major: Economics and Global Studies | Minor: Spanish and Public Health

Rising Junior

Hometown: Knoxville, Tennessee

My name is Molly Grubb and I am from Knoxville, TN. Attending Auburn has been the best decision of my life. The Auburn Family is real, and I have felt it everyday of my college career. I have always strived to make the most of my opportunities, so applying to the honors college was a great next step. My time apart of the Honors program has been one of the biggest blessings that Auburn has provided me thus far. The quality of the Professors, advisors, and fellow peers has surpassed all of my expectations.

Meme Greene

Major: Marketing

Rising Sophomore

Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia

My name is Meme and I’m from Atlanta, Georgia. My favorite part of being in the Honors College is the community that it provides within the Auburn family. Smaller class sizes with more attentive professors allows us to thrive in the classroom and have a deeper understanding of class material. Not only do Honors students get a more enriched learning experience, but we are also provided with fun activities and opportunities to get to know other Honors students and advisors. These activities range from a Cup at Cater, an opportunity to have a cup of coffee with the Honors community, to the Honors College formal, a themed dance put together for Honors students. I also appreciate being able to walk into Cater Hall at anytime and always feel at home. The Honors College has provided me and my peers with many opportunities to grow both in and out of the classroom. I can’t wait to tell you more about Auburn Honors!

Lauren Lavender

Major: Biomedical Sciences and Neuroscience

Rising Junior

Hometown: Roswell, Georgia

My name is Lauren Lavender, and I am from Roswell, GA. If you would have asked me my junior year of high school where I would go to college, I never would have thought it would be Auburn. Coming from a household where my parents met as cheerleading partners at the University of Georgia, I always assumed that is where I would go. However, my experience at an Auburn Honors College recruiting event and my subsequent on-campus tour blew me away, and was enough for me to remove my housing deposit at UGA and put one down for the honors dorms here. Ever since then, the Honors College has continually provided me with incredible opportunities for my own personal growth as well as my academic development, and I undoubtedly wouldn’t be where I am in my academic career nor who I am as a person if it wasn’t for Auburn Honors. I am completely confident I made the right choice and I am eternally grateful for my experience here!

Camylle Lollar

Major: Chemical Engineering

Rising Sophomore

Hometown: Hoover, Alabama

My name is Camylle Lollar, and I am from Hoover, Alabama. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, sports, and being outdoors. When deciding to join Auburn Honors, I felt like it would be a good fit for me because I was used to being in the International Baccalaureate program at my high school. I had always enjoyed smaller, discussion-based classes, and Auburn honors gave me just that! Outside of honors, I am involved in the National Society of Black Engineers, Emerge campus student leadership, and on-campus research.

Drew Cobble

Major: Accounting

Rising Sophomore

Hometown: Nashville, Tennessee

My name is Drew Cobble, and I am from Nashville, Tennessee. In my free time I like to golf and spend time on the lake. When I was on my college search, I was attracted to both the small class sizes and feel of a small school as well as the resources and opportunities offered by a large university. Instead of having to choose between one or the other, the honors college provided me with the best of both worlds. I am able to form personal relationships with my professors in a small classroom environment while still enjoying everything that a large school like Auburn has to offer.
