Austin McDonald Breaks Record


As a freshman, Austin told himself, "Don't sweat the small stuff." Looks like he took his own advice.
Like many students he switched majors along the way from Animal Science to History.

Recent Honors College graduate just broke the record number of honors hours taken with 60 honors hours.
SAU Honors College students are required to take 24 honors hours.

Austin is from Pine Bluff, Arkansas and graduated with a degree in History.

Way to go Austin.
