A squirrel monkey, albino hedgehog and native Eastern indigo snake were just a few of the celebrity guests at the 2021 Annual College of Sciences and Mathematics, or COSAM, Open House. 

“COSAM Student Services did a terrific job creating this fun and informative event to welcome our students back to campus,” said COSAM's Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Bob Boyd. “Events like these help our students feel at home and show that COSAM cares about them.”

Dozens of students gathered on Aug. 25 to celebrate the beginning of a new semester. Wild Animal Safari from Pine Mountain, Georgia brought several animals from their park and held informational sessions, while additional booths, including Student Services, the Auburn University Natural History Museum, and the Office of Inclusion, Equity and Diversity answered questions and talked to new and returning students about the exciting things planned for this academic year. 

Students who participated in the event were also given the opportunity to write postcards featuring the Azaleas from the Auburn University Arboretum, in addition to learning more about the protected Eastern indigo snake species brought by the Auburn University Museum of Natural History. 

The open house helped jump-start the beginning of a promising semester for COSAM and we look forward to seeing the contributions our new students bring to the Auburn family.
