Students in Dr. Retzlaff’s Historic Preservation course completed surveys and preservation plans in Montgomery’s Garden District. The Garden District is a neighborhood which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984 and hosted more than 750 buildings, all of which were surveyed by the students. They presented their projects to the Board of Directors, community members, and City of Montgomery planning staff.

Fall 2021 Faculty Updates

When they’re not teaching, they’re…

This past fall semester I was lucky enough to be a GRA for the Community Planning Program at Auburn. So far, it’s been an amazing experience and has given me tons of opportunities to learn about how planning works in the real world. I got to work with Dr. Megan Heim LaFrombois on her research in the planning field, specifically in the field of planning pedagogy. This research allowed me to expand my horizons a bit and learn a new topic in something I am already very passionate about. Along with assisting with research, I, along with the other Graduate Assistants, helped promote the Community Planning program by working a table on the Haley concourse and distributing posters around campus. I got to talk to several interested undergraduate students, some prospective planning students, and even some non-students interested in a career change. Overall, this fall semester as a GRA was fulfilling and I can’t wait for next semester!
