I can tell you a lot!

I can tell you a lot of things about Auburn, AL. 

I can tell you that the winters are windier and colder than you would expect from a town so close to the Gulf of Mexico. I can tell you that the summers are hotter and more humid than a sauna and all that wind from the winter suddenly is nonexistent. I can tell you that it thunders on a completely clear summer night. That if you are expecting snow to close the town, that snow will probably drop between 2 AM and 3 AM. Making it incredibly difficult to get your Instagram pictures. 

I can tell you a lot of things about Auburn, AL.

I can tell you that the energy in this town shifts to a vibrant hue of technicolor on game day Saturdays. I can tell you that walking to campus never seemed easier than an hour before kickoff. I can tell you that tailgating with the people of this town is something that you will never forget. Nor, will you ever want to.

I can also, tell you a lot of things about Auburn University.

I can tell you that you’re probably going to fail your first biology test. You went in only thinking the Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.

I can tell you that you will definitely run out of dining dollars. There’s no way you can walk past a Chick-Fil-A and a Starbucks and not use your “monopoly” money on it.

I can tell you that the day you figure out Haley Center’s layout will be the happiest day of your sophomore year. (Hint: Four sounds like Foy so Quad 4 faces Foy Hall).

I can tell you a lot of things about Auburn University.

I can tell you that your professors are only human and are trying their best too. Go to office hours. I can tell you that class registration is most definitely not the end of the world.

I can tell you that those “old” upperclassmen begging you to get involved on campus are not overexaggerating, but are being honest.

I can tell you that being a part of this University and a proud citizen is more magical than you could ever imagine.

There are some things that I cannot tell you about Auburn. Or this University. But, I can challenge you, to find out.


The Auburn Family is one of the most close-knit communities that I have ever been apart of. The comradery, the jovialness, the understanding that this group of people gives out once you announce yourself as a resident or one of our beloved Auburn Tigers, is something you will never forget. Or never understand, unless you become a part of it.
