A professor known for making history come alive, one student says Dr. Bohanan teaches like she is telling a story.
“I valued the time she spent teaching my class every morning and the things I learned from her,” former student Lisa Robison says. “She was one of my first and favorite teachers at Auburn.”
On Tuesday night, Dr. Donna Bohanan will be honored for her service and dedication to Auburn students at this year’s Final Lecture. The Final Lecture is an opportunity for Auburn students to honor one outstanding professor for teaching excellence.
This award is unique because professors are nominated by students, and the honoree is chosen by a popular vote. The chosen professor is asked to speak on a topic of his or her choice.
Especially if you had the opportunity to take one of Dr. Bohanan’s classes, come to this event and show your appreciation for one of Auburn’s best professors.
“Let’s use this Final Lecture as an opportunity to show Dr. Bohanan that her hard work has paid off and that she has touched the lives of students in a meaningful way,” says Patrick Michael, AVP of Academic Affairs.
The Final Lecture will take place on Tuesday, April 8 at 7 p.m. in the Foy auditorium with refreshments to follow.

The SGA Senate met last Monday to propose new legislation to improve SGA efficiency and productiveness.
Senator Byrd introduced a bill to allocate $7000 of the SGA’s technology budget to create an Office of Student Involvement Technology Bank. Senator Byrd explained, “Currently, technology is being shared within the office in a very informal way.” The proposed technology bank, which would be available for all SAP’s use, would include items such as iPads and video cameras. Senator Byrd went on to say that this “system will ensure technology is properly stored…and used in a responsible way. It will also allow all SAP’s to use technology and make their programs better.”
Senators Hess, Honeywell, and Silver also re-introduced a measure to randomize ballot positions for all future SGA elections. In the words of Senator Hess, “These bill were passed during the last Senate cycle, but could not be implemented due to OIT issues.” Senator Hess went on to explain that he and his colleagues hoped to pass this bill, which is the same as the legislation passed a few months ago. With a full year to prepare for randomized balloting, OIT is expected to be able to fully implement the legislation in time for next year’s elections.
During the meeting, Executive Vice President Jackson Pruett also shared plans to revise Auburn’s parking system. One significant proposal is to revamp the fine structure for parking tickets, with first-time offenders being fined only $10, second-time offenders $20, and so on up to $50. However, parking administration is also looking at an across-the-board $20 fee increase for parking permits in order to fund the construction of a new parking deck, among other things.
Finally, the Senate also approved the appointment of Lindsey Conry as the Vice President of the COSAM school council. Additionally, the confirmation of the Assistant Vice Presidents in the Executive Branch of SGA will be occurring next week.
