Student Stories

``Auburn Global has been helpful in so many ways. They register students for their major classes but also register students for Auburn Global classes, which helped me a lot with transitioning to higher-level classes and the American higher education system in general.``



``Professors always encourage students to involve in the class discussions, and they will give some comments to the students' responses to make it as a dialogue. The class is more like students centered atmosphere.``
