Students Spend Spring Break Serving Others

As winter comes to a bitter end, Auburn students readily greet the coming spring season with open arms and hopeful plans for a weeklong island getaway, free of tests, homework or papers.

House and Home: Auburn's Love Affair with Waffle House

Waffle House has long been a haven for college students. It’s a Mecca of late-night syrup and bacon and those crispy hash browns you can never make the same way at your house—no matter how hard you try. The cultural icon was founded in 1955 and has since become legendary for a nearly unchanging menu, not to mention its 24-hour availability. The franchise is also famous for spending almost nothing on advertising; the hungry just keep coming back of their own accord. This begs the question:…

Pharmacy School: Just What the Family Ordered

As children grow up, their parents are often told, “I can see it now. That one’s going to be just like you.”

For Tyler Dalton, that statement couldn’t be closer to the truth – and yet, not too close at the same time.

Dalton is a fourth-generation student at the Harrison School of Pharmacy at Auburn, but originally didn’t think he would follow in the footsteps of both parents, his cousin and his grandfather.

“All my life growing up, I’ve had…
