Coming to Auburn as a freshman in fall 2008 was something I should not have been able to do.
You see, when I came to school I could not afford tuition past that initial semester, even with the scholarships I had been awarded. It was not supposed to work out, but I could not give up hope. After 8 years, 3 on-campus jobs, and two graduations (BS, 2012 and Au.D., 2016), my hopes and hard work paid off with a white coat! My family, friends, professors, supervisors, and patients rooted for me the entire time.
Because of the Auburn family and “work, hard work” I am now Dr. Caitlyn Roberts, Doctor of Audiology. Thank you Auburn for all you have given this Auburn woman!
