Environmental Programs Provide Support to Campus

Auburn University is a wonderful place to work!

Serving the campus community is the primary focus of Environmental Programs.

What is Environmental Programs (Environmental Health and Safety)?

Envinronmental Programs is an office within the Department of Risk… Continue

AU vs Ball State

Playing With Heart

The torrential rain and the ominous clouds

Couldn't dampen the spirit of the Auburn Crowd.

They remained in the stands and celebrated with song

And hoped waiting out the storm would not take too long.

At the games beginning, the Mountaineers seemed grounded

They slammed us with two touchdowns

And our fans were astounded!

Then, finding their balance after such a shaky start,

Our… Continue

Campus Appearance Takes Major Steps

Hello once again to Auburn students, faculty, staff, and alumni! I just wanted to take this opportunity to recognize and reflect on Auburn University's campus appearance over the past year.

Since I arrived on campus in the fall of 2008, I have seen many major improvements to Auburn's campus facilities and overall landscape! First of all, I was taken aback by the glorious structure that is the Shelby Center for Engineering Technology that was completed in December of 2007. In awe, I… Continue

Pharmacy Students Learn by Experience, not Textbook

Dr. Paul Jungnickel, professor and associate dean of academic and student affairs for HSOP, said the program is "self-learning, so students are likely to retain information in the long… Continue

Improving Life with Auburn Nursing

Stephanie Works is a senior in the Auburn University School of Nursing. She chose the program because, like many other nurses, she wants to help people. However, Stephanie takes it one step further by saying she wants to be able to “improve a person’s quality of life.”

Although she has been an Auburn fan all her life, Stephanie says she chose Auburn’s nursing program over other schools because of the one-on-one attention students can receive. In fact, Auburn’s program is so strong… Continue

Auburn Nurses Help Educate Ecuador

“I realized the impact the trip had on me and how it changed my perspective on the world”, Kathy Jo Ellison, who is an associate professor at Auburn University, said. “I wish I had experienced this trip earlier in my life and now I want to help students have the opportunity to be apart of this educational and life changing opportunity.”

A Teacher for the Future Students of America

Elise Schupp, like many college students, came to Auburn University thinking she would major in education. Unlike most students, she stuck by her decision and never switched majors.

“I came to Auburn knowing I wanted to be a teacher,” Schupp said.

For the first semester, Schupp took classes in other departments to see if she had interests elsewhere. Teaching was still her first choice. This put her on the fast track to graduate.

Schupp is a senior in the college… Continue

The Rock is Back!

Auburn University is known for priding itself on tradition. The clock tower in Sanford Hall, the various statues of golden eagles with their wings spread wide, the nationally acknowledged lists of students gaining awards in academic superiority and the decades of football greatness, all attest to that tradition of excellence. This is something that can be recognized by a student on his or her first day on campus, but one recently returned member of the Auburn family has been a part of this… Continue

How about that WVU Win!

I love how ESPN's ranking puts us at 24 but why have the others not even ranked us? We are 3-0 and yet there are still so many teams that are 2-1 that are above us. Well, I think I have an answer to that question but first I'd like to say that I think we've got great potential this year. Our team has been starting out slowly (have you noticed this?) nearly every game. But like a big freight train once we get going it's hard to stop us. I think I like this strategy much better as it will take… Continue

¿Cuánto quieres aprender español? (Translation: How much do you want to learn Spanish?) Anthony Farmer, senior in the College of Business, was so adamant about learning the language that he moved to Panama for a summer.

Anthony is from Woodstock, Georgia and came to Auburn as an International Business major. He later switched to Accounting but kept his minor in Spanish. He has decided that once he graduates, he wants to join the military, specifically either the Navy or Air Force. If… Continue

Have you ever seen the rain?

A former student and wonderful Auburn alumnae, Jami (Bebee) McCord, shared this with me.

It’s a simple question. It only becomes profound when you get a few thousand people asking it with you. You know the one:

“I-I-I-I wanna know-w-w, have you ever seen …”

… thousands upon thousands of people screaming out the words to “Have You Ever Seen The Rain”?
Go see… Continue

I read some really ugly posts from the W. VA crowd on Twitter, and the only thing I can say is answer them on the field Tigers!!! Make 'em pay Neiko!

Sure wish I was coming down for tomorrow's game (loved last week's), but I'll be watching on TV with my brother ('85) and dad ('63)! And I'll be there for Parent's Weekend next week! My son is 3rd generation at AU and I love the games even more now that he is there!
