Auburn Women

Michelle Bufkin ’16

I came to Auburn University as an Animal Sciences Pre-Vet major. Through getting involved in clubs in the University and the College of Agriculture I found out that my passion was not science. My advisors helped me find a major that fit me perfectly. I graduated in May of 2016 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Agricultural Communications.

I actually had the amazing opportunity to not leave Auburn after graduation! I now work as the recruiter for the College of Agriculture here. I could not imagine a more perfect job or university. I love helping students find their passion, and home away from home at Auburn.

I am still heavily involved in the Animal Sciences industry, even though my major changed. I serve as the legislative chair for the Alabama CattleWomen’s Association. And I am a member and serve on the Membership and Communications committee of the American National CattleWomen.

I think in any industry it is incredibly important to surround yourself with amazing and supportive people, who understand your passions and want to you achieve them. Auburn University and the College of Agriculture did that for me, so I want to continue doing that for others.
