Throughout the school year, tons of events sweep The Plains to incorporate students from every walk of life, and to encourage them to be part of what has come to be known as the Auburn Family. Auburn’s University Program Council (UPC) is the student-led programming board that sponsors the majority of on-campus events.

UPC will sponsor Tiger Mania on Wednesday, Sept. 21, from 11-3 p.m. on the Auburn University Student Center Greenspace.
Freshman Anslee Allen from Auburn expresses her excitement for the many events that UPC has to offer this fall, including Tiger Mania.
“As a freshman, I am so excited to attend various on-campus events to meet new people, and find out more about being involved in campus life,” Allen said.
Being that not everyone has the same tastes in activities, Allen expresses that UPC and other campus organizations do a great job of offering a wide variety of events for different personalities. At the convenience of students, UPC is offering Tiger Mania during the day to accommodate their hectic schedules.
“I think it’s cool that UPC is doing an event like this during school hours because it gives you a break from class,” Allen says. “Sometimes, I don’t have enough time at night because of everything else going on, so it’s really nice to have an event that caters to people’s schedules.”
Tiger Mania will include free lunch for the first 500 students. The event will also offer inflatables, games and more.
According to Allen, the university has done a great job at keeping students updated on events and happenings on campus and in the Auburn area.
“I always know about what events are going on, and most of the people I hear about attending the events are freshmen,” Allen adds.
Allen is just one example of how being involved means being informed. Being from Auburn, she has had somewhat of a different freshman experience than others. She says that being able to attend UPC and other related events gives her the opportunity to meet new people and fully receive the Auburn experience.
From comedy acts and major concerts to workshops and lectures, UPC provides students with free activities that grab their attention and get them involved. UPC is made up of 11 committees, each led and comprised of students. For more information about UPC events, or how to get involved, visit auburn.edu/student_info/upc/index.html.
