Welcome to the Loveliest Village on The Plains located in god’s country! This is it, the place you will meet your forever friends.
Early on, I made a commitment that I was going to go all-in! Currently, that is exactly what I’m doing.
You’ll be stressed in the moment and it may seem like your pulling too entirely too many all-nighters in RBD . However, the rush of adrenaline that you get each time you roll Toomer’s corner seems to make it worth it.
We went to every home football game (can’t beat section 218). I ate at every typical Auburn restaurant (can’t beat Little Italy .I’ve even made my parents pockets hurt and shopped at almost every downtown store (can’t beat The Atelier).
What stood out to me the most was convocation. It first seemed a little scary but on the day before classes began, all freshmen were packed into the gym. This is where faculty and staff welcomed us into the Auburn family. After orientation, they put food on the concourse as people began to introduce each other.
It’s almost been a year, but the family I made at convocation is still trying to accomplish everything freshmen should. We try to watch as many sunrises and sunsets from the stadium parking deck. We ate lunch and dinner at Little Italy‘s. I’ve bought new clothes from The Atelier…
The rest is history...
Finally, I’ll leave you with this I can’t say that we will have the same experiences. I do know that you’ll figure your own way through it. I also know that you’ll enjoy it because It’s Great to be an Auburn Tiger!
