by Robert French

This is Auburn ... in social media, no less.

I wondered how many Auburn alums we'd find at companies like: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Apple, Microsoft,…

1. Your professors don’t care about you:

Professors wouldn’t spend time with college students if they didn’t care. They love to have students come in to office hours and chat about class, life, Auburn football, basically whatever. They are your greatest guide to not only getting good grades in their class, but about where the best doctor’s office is or which restaurant is perfect for when your parents come in town.  Trust me, they…

50 Pieces of Advice to Freshmen Girls from a Senior

Dear upcoming freshmen girls:

Can I be you again? With graduation coming up soon, this week consists of many "lasts" for me.

Dear Freshman Self

Welcome to college! You have such an amazing four years ahead of you. Here is some advice from your senior self:
