I had a chance to be in the first class of females at Yale and I toured Georgia Tech, but Auburn was already accepting to women (and had a great football team!).
I majored in math and encountered some professors patronizing to women in class and was advised by my advisor to chose a more female appropriate major. Women were asserting themselves and it was good to see the changes happening at Auburn.
All that said, by the time my daughter went to Auburn, her major in bio-medical sciences was not unusual at all. I was super proud that she chose Auburn and had an incredible experience there.
