Students and Auburn leaders talk to high school visitors.

A group of students from Benjamin E. Mays High School in Atlanta recently visited Auburn University as part of a college bus tour organized by the SPARK STEM Institute and were welcomed warmly by campus leaders.

On Friday, Sept. 22, the SPARK STEM Institute hosted 90 high school seniors from Benjamin E. Mays High School in Atlanta who were visiting Auburn University as part of the “College Bus Tour.”

Students attended an Auburn overview presentation led by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and were welcomed to campus by James Goosby, McCrary Institute for Cyber and Critical Infrastructure Security Senior Fellow. During their visit, students went on a campus tour that included stops at the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, Samford Hall, Brown-Kopel Engineering Student Achievement Center, Harold D. Melton Student Center and the Academic Classroom and Laboratory Complex.

The visit was sponsored by former Mayor Shirley Franklin, the City of Atlanta’s 58th mayor, and Andrea L. Boone of the Atlanta City Council. Students also toured Tuskegee University and Alabama State University before returning home to Atlanta. The SPARK STEM Institute plans to continue strengthening the relationship between Auburn and Benjamin E. Mays High School in the future.
