This is a major topic in our upcoming elections and I’m not sure how I feel about it.
I don’t want to depend on foreign oil anymore. I want to get out from under the control of major oil companies and don’t want to give them my support.
I don’t want to ruin any more pure land with man-made construction. There are very few beautiful areas untouched by man anymore and I don’t want to ruin the land for the creatures who live… Continue

Who does your hair make you?
Short, long, brown, blonde, up, down, bob, pixie, mullet... What does your hair say about you?
Hair is such a fabulous thing. It can change your look completely, make you stand out in a crowd or make you stand apart from the crowd. There are so many different things to do with your hair that you have a never ending array of possibilities for what you want to be.
If I had long blonde hair with amazing body and wave, I would feel like a completely… Continue

For most Auburn students getting ready to walk across the graduation stage on Saturday, there are mixed emotions. There is a sense of relief and accomplishment for completing four (or more) years of school. There is also a good deal of nostalgia and the sadness that comes with leaving friends and the place many have called home for the past few years.
Julia Jones, a mechanical engineering major, is moving to Atlanta after graduation, where she will get married and find a job. Her… Continue

Entering college as a freshman can be intimidating. So can entering as a graduate student new to the campus. But Libbie McElhaney is hopeful about the new chapter in her life. She recently came to Auburn for graduate school after attending school at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.
McElhaney said that what was appealing about Auburn’s pharmacy school (besides the in-state tuition for the Huntsville native) was its attention to students.
“They seemed a bit… Continue

Lacey Faciane, a junior, transferred from Jefferson State in Birmingham to Auburn University last year. She received a two year scholarship to attend Jefferson State and after those two years decided to come to Auburn.
Faciane has always wanted to attend Auburn University and is happy she made the life changing switch. The hardest part of transferring was getting here and not knowing anyone. All of her friends already had met their friends so it was hard to get her own. She also was… Continue

The new fall lineup of television shows is quickly approaching. Favorites such as “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Office,” “Scrubs” and “CSI” are returning alongside new comedies, dramas and reality series.

Most college students get excited about moving into a new place -new roommates, a new living room to decorate and another adventurous year of college living. Even with this excitement, there is one aspect of moving that brings an anxious feeling to everyone’s stomach – the actual process of moving.
Bags of clothes, boxes of books, couches and beds – where did all this stuff come from? The process of packing everything and moving to a new location is only part of the challenge. The… Continue

Something about the summer seems to make people want to become a pet owner.
For college students, the summer provides more free time with a decrease in schoolwork. The summer can also bring about a lonely house with roommates gone for the summer on an internship or a study abroad program. These factors make the summertime a convenient time for college students to get a pet. They have more time available to devote to training and taking care of a new pet.
For families, the… Continue

I sat down with Tate Railey, the manager of Bizilia's Cafe to discuss the specials they are offering this summer and what makes Bazilia's different than all the other restaurants downtown.
Railey says that Bazilia's is different than other resataurants because of their unique environment and their paninis. No other place located in downtown Auburn sells paninis.
The environment at Bazilia's is conducive to the students here at Auburn University as well. It's a quiet… Continue

You’ve sat down at the computer to register for classes this year. Before you sign up, you do a final class check. English, check. History, check. Computer,check. Self-defense and jogging.
You look at it again. Self-defense and jogging. How can this be?
At college you get more than just an education and what better way than to experiment with classes that you otherwise would have never had the opportunity to take.
It may not be your average class, but it is… Continue

If you spent your entire summer in a swimsuit or sweats rarely thinking about clothing, now is the time to get back up to date with the latest fashions for back to school. After talking to the stores around downtown Auburn, it is clear that this fall is going to be a season of jewel tones and bold accessories. So if rich, dark purple is the new black, then we are in for a colorful fall.
So pull back out your flat boots and continue wearing the animal prints from last season. In… Continue

As the summer comes to a close and Auburn students make their way back to the Plains, the staff at AU Bookstore is preparing for textbook mayhem.
The beginning of each semester always brings students and their syllabi into the store looking for books and supplies needed for all of their classes. The shelves are labeled by subject, but there are always plenty of employees on hand to help locate items.
Professors supply the bookstore with their book order, which the store… Continue

With the start of a new Olympics, I looked up Coby Miller, a former Olympian and silver medal recipient. He competed in the 2000 summer Olympics in Track and Field and is training for the upcoming Olympic Games.
I was curious to find out what’s the day in the life of a past and perhaps future Olympian.
His event is the sprints and say his specialty is running the 100m and 200m.
His days consisted of training for the Olympics under Auburn’s track and field coach,… Continue

It seems like yesterday when we were all packing up our things and gearing up for the next four years of our lives. We endured countless quizzes and tests while always making it out to the fraternities and bars for some midnight fun. It has been said that this is the best time of our lives. It was.
Reaching the end of what seemed like a never-ending experience is surreal. After four years of fun and hard work, it is now time to pack up our childhood and enter the world of bills, jobs… Continue
