"The graduate outreach program provided the flexibility I was searching for in an advanced degree. The faculty made a point to make me feel like a part of the class and they were accessible to answer questions. I lived in three different states while enrolled, and the outreach staff skillfully worked out my logistical needs. I am extremely happy with my Auburn experience."
