Elvis has left the building, and the city.
Big name performers come to the city of Auburn occasionally. But, for some that isn’t enough to satisfy the craving of upscale entertainment.
Elvis performed in the Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum during the late 70’s, and is one example of a famous performer hosted by the University. And, every spring and fall Auburn University’s entertainment council, UPC, hosts a big name group to perform for the students. In the past few years… Continue

They have a variety of sports, including flag football, soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, golf and even badminton. The sororities and fraternities also have intramural teams in case you want to go head to head with one of your fellow Greek teams.

If you are interested, you are required to attend one mandatory “Office of International Education Study/Intern Abroad… Continue

When traveling last weekend between Atlanta, GA and Miami, FL, I noticed something that got the little PR wheels turning in my head. Having friendly, helpful, and hard working employees that implement positive customer service is pretty much free PR! I choose to fly Delta whenever possible because my hometown of Newnan, GA is largely employed by this airline. My next door neighbors, teachers from my high school, and parents of close friends all… Continue

Red, white, and blue was the theme on Friday at Turner Field. Not only because those are the team colors for the Atlanta Braves, the southeast’s favorite baseball team, but because fans and players observed Independence Day. The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays and what better way to celebrate than by attending our nation’s favorite pastime, good ol’ American baseball. Nothing makes me feel more patriotic than… Continue

I was talking with a friend of mine the other day who is an engineering major at Auburn. He was telling me that he hasn't slept well in days and that he just isn't feeling like himself because of stress. He told me that he felt like the work load given to him by his professors was overwhelming and not to mention unthoughtful of his other classes.
This is true in many of the more challenging majors. I cannot imagine how hard it would be to have a major that difficult and be able to… Continue
