“John Oakberg is an Auburn alumnus that was part of a team that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005,” said Dean Nicholas J. Giordano from the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM) as he welcomed students at the STEM High School Visitation Day. “The next Nobel Peace Prize winner from Auburn University might very well be in this room today.”

Dean Giordano welcomed students to STEM High School Visitation Day and encouraged them to pursue their education at Auburn University, and a future career in a STEM-related field. The students then heard from Dean Christopher Roberts from the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering in addition to learning about admissions, scholarships and financial aid.

Students had an opportunity to find out about academic programs directly from college representatives, hear directly from students participating in a panel discussion, and take tours of student housing.

Dr. Kimberly Mulligan-Guy shared information about the COSAM Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity, while Dr. Cordelia M. Brown explained the Engineering Academic Excellence Program.

“The College of Sciences and Mathematics is proud to have John Oakberg as an example to students that a career in STEM is full of unlimited potential,” Dean Giordano added.
