For Laurie Kruger, a 22-year-old in the Interior Design major, studying abroad in Italy last spring has her saying “When in Auburn” rather than “When in Rome.”

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
