Plainsmen’s Prep provides qualified incoming first-year students the chance to review math concepts in preparation for a math placement exam at the end of the program.
By completing the 10-day experience, students have a path to potentially increase their math course placement for their first semester at Auburn University.
Students will interact with Auburn faculty, staff, and current undergraduate students to aid in their transition, give them a head start on their success at Auburn, and build a learning community with fellow first-year students. Plainsmen’s Prep will kick off its fifth year in August 2020.
While the main focus of the program is to retain and help progress students in their majors through enhancing their abilities in math concepts, there are also many secondary goals of the program. Plainsmen’s Prep was designed to give students a taste of the collegiate experience and help make the adjustment from high school to Auburn University as smooth as possible.
Students will participate in activities outside of the classroom to connect with their peers and establish friendships that will continue into the fall semester.
Our goal is to provide a welcome excursion on the first full-day of the program to give incoming first-year students in Plainsmen’s Prep an experience to remember.
All participants will visit the Southeastern Raptor Center to learn about their rehabilitation programs and contribution to Auburn University traditions that have impacted generations of students. Participants will also share a group dinner to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for students to build a community with their peers.
Thank you for your consideration and War Eagle!
