Tiger Habitat is Auburn University’s branch of Habitat for Humanity. The group consists of five executive members and 50 students, who raise funds through different events to provide the less fortunate with homes in the Lee County community.

H1N1 vaccinations seem to be at bad times for our guy. Wondering if he can get a time that works between his classes and commitments? Sundays - It seems the clinic has no staff - only alternative was the Hospital medical clinic? Is that the emergency room? Seems costly if a student gets sick on a Sunday? Any suggestions or inisght from others?

After winning four straight games, the Auburn Women's Soccer Team loses tonight to SEC West rival LSU.
The day started off like every other day at the beach with breakfast in our athletic trainer's room. After breakfast we watch film of Wednesday's game against Ole Miss. Watching film is a great tool used to prepare for upcoming games. It helps us to see what we do well and learn from our mistakes.
Some girls nap while others do homework. We eat lunch at 1 p.m., and our… Continue

"Bang, bang, bang, bang!" This is the noise heard by all of my teammates this morning at 8 a.m. Today we finally got to sleep in, but the construction going on in room 411 stopped us from doing that. All the girls came to breakfast grumpy complaining about the crazy man with the hammer.
Breakfast, however, is delightful. We eat fruit, bagels, cereal and our Amy Berbary's famous eggs. Berbary is one of our assistant coaches, but in her spare time she specializes in… Continue

The win against Ole Miss Last Saturday
made us eligible for a bowl!
But this game did not come easy,
and an injury took its toll!
Zac Etheridge went down, not moving,
and the team got on their knees to pray!
This spoke more about our Auburn men,
than words could ever say!
This close knit brotherhood of men
is what sets this team apart!
They are one with Auburn spirit,

We wake up this morning ready to play. We meet in our trainer's condo for breakfast at 9 a.m. Then we are given an hour to rest before we meet up for lunch.
After lunch we have a team meeting. Coach Hoppa gives us some offensive and defensive goals for our game. When we found out we were playing Ole Miss earlier in the week we were beyond excited. Before today, our seniors had never beaten the Rebels and had never advanced in the SEC Tournament. With a win today, we would change both… Continue

Cadet Colonel Taylor Morris is a senior in Air Force ROTC who switched his major to business management. Originally, Morris chose to major in building science.

“God has a plan and everything works out for a reason,” Morris said. “It was a blessing in disguise.”
Morris has been a part of the… Continue

Ole Miss fans were shaking in their rain boots last Saturday, and not just because of Auburn’s 33-20 victory.
Paige Reiber, an Auburn University senior, was present in navy attire on Saturday for Auburn’s first “Navy Nightmare.” “Navy Nightmare” was a campaign led by the Student Government Association (SGA) to encourage students to attend the Halloween game despite the weather, early kickoff time and recent scores. Students were asked to wear all navy to the game vs. Ole Miss. SGA… Continue

When most people use the term “Auburn Family” they are usually referring to a group of people that are brought together to share in the Auburn experience. For the Ole Miss game this year, a group of students and their parents decided to make the “Auburn Family” term have more of a biological meaning.
Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School is a well-known private school in Atlanta that has a big Auburn following. Parents and students of Auburn juniors and seniors get together one game a… Continue

Tis the season for ghosts, pumpkins and spring registration; and while most hours will be filled with core classes why not take a credit and do something fun with it: go bowling.

This is the first semester that Auburn has employed a contracted instructor, Andy DeLaney, and a coach co-instructor, Barbara Holler.
Under the instruction of DeLaney and Holler, bowling classes have gone… Continue

Delta Sigma Pi is a business fraternity at Auburn University that Carpenter has been a member of since 2008.
Similar to other fraternities on campus, Carpenter went through “pledgeship” and had to earn her… Continue
