Study Spots That Aren't RBD

Here at Auburn, we’re entering our fifth week of classes and for many students, that means the first exams of the semester are here. Ralph Brown Draughon Library (RBD), Auburn’s main campus library, is many students go-to place for studying.

So here are alternative study spots for when RBD starts turning into social hour rather than…

The Auburn Family and the Festival Family–One In the Same

My time spent at Auburn from 2008 to 2012 passed without me truly, consciously, absorbing it. Come May 2012, I was driving back home to Texas never to return as a student. It wasn't long after being an alum that I experienced my first festival.

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