“Auburn is a melting pot of cultures. I’ve made friends from more than 15 countries during my time here by going to different campus events, which made me feel comfortable and right at home. Everyone in Auburn, including complete strangers, greets you when you walk by. This feeling of belonging is the Auburn family.”

Auburn Global plans events and arranges opportunities to help me make American friends. This has allowed me to become more confident. I also enjoy meeting with my student services advisor because it gives me another opportunity to improve my speaking skills.
