And, we asked Kati a few questions for the Honors College community to get to know her.


What are you looking forward to in Honors?

Like most, I am looking forward to a semester where we can have the full capacity of students back in the classroom. As an institution of higher education, students are our main focus; seeing them back in the classrooms and The University operating as normal will be a welcomed sight.

Why do you like working at The University of Alabama?

Growing up in Tuscaloosa just minutes from The University, it has always been a special place to me. From attending football games as a child to coming to campus in high school for special events, I have always been impressed by how this small town becomes so much bigger as soon as you step onto campus. There is an extremely diverse community here and no matter where you are everyone always makes you feel welcome and you can see the common goal of success in higher education.

What’s your favorite UA tradition?

Who doesn’t love a good Saturday tailgate? Aside from the excellent reputation of education, football is a huge part of this University. Hearing the fans in Bryant Denny Stadium sing “Yea Alabama!” until the stands seem to shake is an experience like no other. I also love seeing our phenomenal Million Dollar Band as they keep the energy high, dancing and playing in the stands until the amazing halftime show. Everyone should attend at least one Alabama football game (but hopefully, many more) in Bryant Denny Stadium, it is extraordinary.
