Though my time as a student was passed, I could see the similarity in the concept of "family" that transcended Auburn and festivals. Anyone…Continue

Auburn students are in luck thanks to their geographic location. Auburn is just over 100 miles from both Atlanta and Birmingham, popular stops for…Continue
