Finding the Perfect Space

Finding the perfect living space in Auburn can be challenging. Some find it very similar to finding their one true love. Finding the perfect space can take years to happen, while on the other hand, some never do.

When apartment hunting, I personally look for certain features before deciding if it is worthy of a closer look. Some common features most college students look for are a swimming pool, a gym, abundant parking and if it offers a stop on the tiger…

            Many students have played a joke on one of their roommates a time or two. Auburn Student Mary Kathryn Florie and her three roommates once filled up a…

Twins Separated at (Adulthood)

Growing up in Jacksonville, Fla., Brenda Fiacco was never known or seen as a single entity. You see, she was an identical twin.
