Auburn University


After graduating Auburn High School 1 year early, I started my freshman year at Southern Union State Community College. I attended SUSCC for 1 year in which I completed 30 hours. My sophomore year started at Auburn University - my dream school.

Upon my acceptance to Auburn University I decided I wanted to be an early childhood education major, but quickly changed my mind to communication disorders. Several classes required for communication disorders led me to the conclusion that I was not fit for that major, which is when I declared a pre-public relations major.

The classes required for public relations were exactly what interested me. I have always loved writing and being creative since I was in elementary school. A degree in public relations will give me the opportunity to work in an interactive and creative environment. I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to attend a prestigious college such as Auburn University. My skills would not be where they are without the exceptional education I have received throughout my college career.

The Auburn Creed

I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities.I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all.I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by "doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God." And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it. -George Petrie (1945)
