The most heated rivalry in college football will be renewed next weekend as the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Auburn Tigers face off in the 79th Iron Bowl.
Plenty of Iron Bowl stars from years gone by have gone on to bigger and better things in the NFL. But a score of former Tide and Tiger legends have gone on to make a name for themselves in the business community.
For the past four years, Auburn Associate Professor Teresa Gore has used a simulated exercise to teach students how to treat patients with infectious diseases. This year, senior nursing students participated in a simulation of how infectious diseases such as Ebola can easily spread to health care workers through patient care.
Recently, the simulation lab in Miller Hall became a treatment center where students cared for a manikin (simulated patient), a 9-year-old boy named Jason who has cystic fibrosis and is suffering from bacteria-resistant pneumonia.
Students who walk through the door of the Veterans Resource Center at Auburn University find staff members ready to help with a range of issues from benefit questions to class schedules.
This is why AU has been awarded the designation of a top school in the 2015 Military Advanced Education Guide to Colleges and Universities.
"Auburn University is doing all those things that are right, proper and necessary that veterans students have every opportunity to be successful on this campus and those efforts are on par with other national leaders," explains Director of the Veterans Resource Center Dr. Johnny Green.
