The Loveliest Village on the Plains

Auburn isn't called the "loveliest village on the plains" for nothing, and anyone who's been here can attest to that. On Merriam-Webster's website, the word "quicksand" has two abbreviated definitions. One definition is literal: deep, wet sand into which heavy objects sink easily. The other definition is figurative: a situation that is dangerous and difficult to escape from.

Auburn: It Sucks You In

Auburn is not deep, wet sand into which…

Why I Chose the Auburn Family

How I Became A Member of the Auburn Family

I grew up in the lovely Birmingham, Ala., area where virtually 75% of residents are fans of the Criiiiiiimson Tiiide. At 16-years-old, my dad and I had barely missed an Alabama game, and all my life I thought I'd found my home away from home in Tuscaloosa.

Don’t get me wrong, Tuscaloosa is a beautiful place. But, as a sophomore in high school, the day I found myself there for sorority bid day, it felt like I'd…

With only a brief medical history in his chart, May thought it would be beneficial to ask some questions. The resulting conversation confirmed to her the importance of a recent trip to Walter Reed National…

Life Lessons From A Sixth-Year Senior

My high school classmates started graduating a year ago. I only see them on Facebook now; with real jobs, husbands, children or a combination of the three. Sometimes, I get jealous when they post statuses about promotions or how wonderful their new lives are post-graduation. These updates used to make me feel…

A letter to my freshman self

To my freshman self:

It’s hard to narrow down everything I’ve learned the past four years at Auburn. Being completely on your own means learning something every day, but if I could travel back to the fall of 2010 here’s some advice I’d leave you with…

Random roommates are not the end of the world.

I’ll never forget the car ride from Connecticut to Auburn. After a 3 a.m. departure I woke up somewhere in New Jersey and thought, “I’m about to move to Alabama.…

My Top 10 Favorite Restaurants as a College Student.

Graduation is slowly creeping upon me and many others. Everyone says, “Oh I am going to miss walking on campus,” “I am going to miss hearing the fight song when the clock strikes 12,” “I am really going to miss my best friends," and the list goes on. I am going to miss all of those beloved things about Auburn, but the one thing I am truly going to miss is the food. Seriously… I am not even joking.

My hometown is very small, and we are not blessed with the wonderful, food…

How to Thrive… Not Just Survive… your Freshman Year

1. Get involved, but not too involved.

It happened to the best of us. We walked down the concourse on O Days and couldn’t resist signing up for every single club. After about a month we realized that there was no way we could keep up with the demands of being a full time student and attending five extracurricular meetings a week between intramural games. My advice to you is to pick one or two organizations and focus on those. You will thrive in the areas where…

Living up your last week at Auburn

Class of 2014: Congratulations, we did it!


We have gotten to experience Cam Newton as a classmate, winning the national championship, winning two SEC championships and truly understanding the power of a second. We have also been there for the poisoning and removal of Toomer’s Oaks, a rough football season and a few bomb threats. We’ve experienced a lot over our four years at Auburn, but we’ve done it together as a part of the Auburn…

A Historic Four Years

Throughout my four years as a student at Auburn University, I witnessed first hand what it means to be a member of the Auburn Family. The Auburn Family always supports, always encourages and always cheers.

I was spoiled my freshman year. Our football team was not expected to be anything remarkable, and I expected just another football season with wins and losses. Boy was I wrong. As each game came and went, we were still undefeated. It was amazing.

Our team and…
