Ryan Todd ‘13

Senior Director of Development, Rawls College of Business, Texas Tech University

  • Auburn Assistantships: University Program Council & Career Center
  • “My assistantship was an incredibly valuable experience and I can confidently say I would not be where I am today without it. An assistantship at Auburn allowed for instant application from the classroom and a training ground to learn from professionals that view you as a peer and want you to be successful. Ultimately, a mentorship developed during my assistantship opened the door for me to pursue my current position in Higher Education.”

Madison Mucci-Ferris ‘16

Full-Time Residential Community Director,  Southern Methodist University 

  • Auburn Assistantships: Graduate Area Coordinator, Housing & Residence Life
  • “My assistantship at Auburn University included many, many experiences that have shaped the way that I work with students in my job today. I had many “first time” moments that gave me a chance to practice things that I have done over and over again now in “the real world.” I also had the opportunity to work in offices outside of my assistantship that have given me a wider perspective of the Higher Ed world—a perspective that serves me well when I am collaborating with other offices at my current campus.”

Janise McKenzie, ‘16

Greek Affairs Coordinator, Georgia Institute of Technology

  • Auburn Assistantship: Student Organizations and Welcome Week
  • “My experience at Auburn was unparalleled! Auburn taught me the true definition of hard work and how to navigate the professional world. Even though I was only a graduate student, the professional staff treated grad students as their peers and gave us the confidence to develop our own leadership and advising style. I could have gone anywhere to learn theory, but I’m confident I would not have gotten the same practical experience that I gained at Auburn! I would do it all over again just to work with such a supportive and encouraging environment for.”
