The concourse comes alive as each organization sets up their booth along the sides. Organization days, better known as O-Days, help acquaint students with the many organizations they can be involved in.
Heather Duncan, a junior communication student, speaks very highly of O-Days and its purpose on campus. She explains O-Days by saying, “it’s an entire week where different organizations on campus can come out and set up a table.” Not only does O-Days allow organizations to get their name out to students, it also allows students the opportunity to see all the organizations Auburn has to offer.
To grab the attention of the students, Duncan says, “they give out fliers and different freebies so as students walk on the concourse they can stop by different organizations that they may be interested in.” Each organization has their own way of capturing students’ attention. Students find useful information about clubs and other organizations on campus during O-Days. It also allows students to get on an e-mail list to learn more about how to get involved in each organization.
O-days have many positive impacts on campus. It helps students see that there are many ways to get involved in Auburn other than Greek life and SGA. Duncan says, “O-days is a great way for students to get plugged in and involved on campus. It shows students that there is a place for everyone.” Auburn does have many organizations that allow any student to get involved anywhere from the Harry Potter club to ROTC. Duncan explains, “there’s so many organizations on campus and there’s a place for everyone, so it’s a beneficial way to show Auburn students what there is to get involved in.”
O-Days also helps freshman find their place on campus. It lays out each organization on campus for the new students to see what Auburn has to offer. When asked who is most likely to benefit from O-Days, Duncan replied, “definitely freshman because they have no idea all the clubs Auburn has to offer.” O-days sets students up to be involved on Auburn’s campus in a positive way.
