There are many opportunities for students said Fiss and the museum is very open to any ideas students may have or projects they may have in mind.
"As a part of Auburn University, serving students is key to the museum's mission," Fiss said. "The staff has worked with professional museum consultants as well as student focus groups to help identify strategic goals for the next five years, and 901 Collective aligns with those objectives."
