Jamil Price


Extended Orientation Coordinator, Texas A&M University
2012 Graduate, Office of First Year Experience Graduate Assistant

"During my experience as a graduate assistant at Auburn University I gained a strong foundation of the skills that I needed and would use as a student affairs administrator. The coursework allowed me to learn the foundation/theory and the assistantship enabled me to practice and discover what styles or techniques worked best for me. Being a graduate assistant gave me a glimpse into the field to explore different areas of student affairs with internships and practicums. My two years at Auburn made a huge impact into the professional that I am today."

"My experience at Auburn beyond prepared me to begin my career as a young professional. Outside of my assistantship and the classroom, I was able to gain a variety of knowledge by serving on committees, assisting as a facilitator and attending professional development events.
