Because there are only 2 days left until football season, here are some of our favorite #2 Cam Newton moments. He might be #2 on the field, but he will always be #1 in the Auburn Family’s heart.

15 Signs You Went To Auburn

hannah15 signs you went to AU graphic

1. You know that no other mascot comes close to Aubie.

– Aubie is considered the most decorated mascot of all time. Aubie has won more National Championships than any other mascot. He also wears some pretty incredible outfits.

2. You know that you can always get your Momma’s Love, even though you’re far away from home.

3. You now know how to navigate through The Haley Center like a champ.

jenna blog bio 2

You plan months in advance for this moment, and when you hear the magical words, football season, there’s a feeling in your heart that you cannot explain. If this is you, you might be obsessed with football season. It’s okay. No one is judging. But just to make sure that you are truly obsessed, I’ve listed a few more indications that you may have come down with a case of Football Fever.

1. You plan important events around the football schedule.

Even important events like weddings…

Why the Auburn University Cheerleaders are the Best Cheerleaders

hannah

The Auburn Cheerleading squad invited the AU Bookstore crew to attend one of their Summer practices, and wow, were we impressed. And we all came to a quick realization: We are obsessed with the Auburn Cheerleaders.

We’ve narrowed it down, and have listed the top 16 reasons on why Auburn Cheerleaders are the Best Cheerleader #ever.

  1. First off these kids look GOOD. Auburn Cheerleaders are always looking sharp.

2. They’ve got some sweet moves.

3. Their sweaters. Where can I get one of these???!!!?!?

4. The male cheerleaders are LEGIT. Talk about strength. Do you have any idea how heavy those flags are?!?!

5. And the ladies also perform some pretty impressive tricks. These girls are athletes, and have the skills to prove it.

Star Wars Explains Auburn Syllabus Week

Jennings Blog Bio

A LONG TIME AGO IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY you were in sitting in class, counting down the days till Summer. Now Summer is over and you have to readjust to college life. Your first Jedi mission: Syllabus Week.

Star Wars gif

When class starts you try to remember how to hold a pencil because you haven’t written anything since last semester.

hand gif

You start to dose off and realize you should have gotten more sleep before your 8 am.

jaba sleeping

Your Professor starts going over the syllabus and advises you not to procrastinate or cram for projects.

Then assigns a lot of homework even though it is Syllabus Week.

Padme gif

The Professor then says you’ll have plenty of time to get it all done, but you don’t believe him.

darth vader gif

You start to get stressed out and have to remind yourself why college is important.

But there is a New Hope. Be confident in yourself. (As confident as this guy, who thinks he was kicked.)

Take a deep breath,

Because you can be anything you want to be, if you believe in yourself.

welcome home samford

Orange and blue, football games, and ‘War Eagles.’ This is what comes to mind when people imagine Auburn University. But when we fantasize about Auburn we see orange and blue sunsets, miracles in Jordan-Hare, and the beauty, power, and discipline in an eagle’s wings. From the outside Auburn is just another southern university with passionate fans. However, the moment you step on the plains of east Alabama, you realize it’s so much more. It is bigger than a football game or a diploma. Auburn’s roots are deeper. Lots of schools have fans. Auburn is family.

While you are in college, Auburn gives you a family away from home, a group of people to help you grow into the adult you aim to be. After graduation Auburn becomes a home for some alumni to raise their own little tigers. Auburn is more than a University. Auburn is a town, a family, and a home to all who wish to be apart of it. The Auburn Family is a feeling deep in your heart that ties you to everyone around you. It brings people together. Auburn is enough. Saying “War Eagle!” to a stranger in an Auburn hat creates an instant connection, whether you are on Samford lawn or half way across the world.

I grew up behind enemy lines in Georgia. When I was little, my mom always told me that if I ever was lost, just yell, “War Eagle!” and someone I could trust would come help me. I saw the love my parents had for Auburn and even though I was too young to understand, I wanted to have it too. The best part of any year was when my parents would take me to Auburn for football games. Auburn was Heaven on Earth for me. Now, I am a student at Auburn University and I understand my parents’ love for Auburn: it’s called the Auburn Family.

Our family is returning home from their summer adventures. This means that the Concourse is about to be crowded again. But don’t fret, because when the Auburn Family gathers in large numbers, miracles happen. Whether it’s a Kick Six, a Hail Mary, or a comeback for your GPA, great things happen when we are together.

Auburn is more than a University. It is a feeling of Tradition. It is a family. It is a place of miracles. It is home.
