KIRSTEN FAILING
Double Major in Industrial and Systems Engineering & Applied Mathematics
Hometown: Novi, MI

Favorite Thing About Being a PCA:
My favorite thing about being a PCA is giving students the information they need to begin their journey in “the real world,” a place that can seem very intimidating without the proper knowledge. I’ve talked to many students that aren’t sure how to search for jobs, write a resume, or utilize the resources available to them. As a PCA, I am able to provide information that makes them more confident and less stressed out about entering the business world.

Favorite Auburn Tradition:
My favorite Auburn tradition is our mascot, Aubie. Whether he is playing with children at a soccer game, comically sneaking up on a student in the library, or driving downtown to wave to shoppers, he embodies the spirit and love of the Auburn family.
