100+ Women Strong celebrated another successful event! Female high school Juniors and Senior were invited by the Engineering Outreach and Recruiting Office to attend MADE at Auburn, where they met other prospective Auburn engineers, alumni, current students and representatives from each of the engineering disciplines.

The event took place in the Brown-Kopel Grand Hall, and included a welcome breakfast, a message from the Dean, student experience panels with current students and alumni, an update from admissions and a lunch with keynote speaker, Emily Zieman, ’04 aerospace engineering.

Emily gave a rousing address, inspiring students to “let engineering open the world for you.” She spoke about her experience as a professional in the Pentagon and how “Auburn Engineering was the catalyst for these things.”
