Sharing gifts with roommates is especially exciting, but three Auburn University girls chose to put a different spin on the event.

Meaghan Feick, Laura Chambless and Mckenna Hicks have shared an apartment for nearly three years.… Continue

was 918 miles away? This is the case for many of Auburn’s out-of-state

students, but junior exercise science major Cyndi Hinchman is determined

to have a wonderful Thanksgiving right… Continue

What are you thankful for?

With Thanksgiving break and finals just around the corner, Auburn students find themselves spending a lot of time in the library.

I made a visit to the library on Monday night and asked students what they were thankful for and what they were doing over Thanksgiving break.

Every person was eager to answer my questions because that gave them an excuse to step away from their studies.

“I’m thankful for my friends, family, Auburn and good health,” said junior Ashley… Continue

Some are working to help their parents with the financial load of college, and others to have extra spending money. Wes Sinor and Ragan Helms, both senior public relations majors, have jobs for these… Continue
