Auburn Pride: War Eagle Wednesday!

War Eagle Wednesday!

War Eagle...It's Wednesday!!

 
 
For my War Eagle Wednesday I have gone around and asked my friends what their favorite part of Auburn is...
 
Here are the responses I got...

First I went to my friend Brianna and asked her what her favorite part of Auburn was. She responded "Football and tailgating" Of course we are proud of our football here in Auburn, and fall is by far our favorite season here.  Like I mentioned in my last War Eagle post there is something magical about the Stadium when the band is getting fired up and the crowd is raising their voices.  You can not help but get chill bumps.

My friend Stephanie said "That there are so many great parks and beautiful landscaping.  Specifically Kiesel Park, you can't beat it."  It is so true, my friends and I spend so much time at the parks. We go on walks/runs and sometimes hang our Enos and just enjoy the beautiful day God put before us. 

My Friend Lane said "The Auburn Family, and how you can instantly have a bond with anyone else who you meet that goes/went to Auburn."  It is true that you can walk down the street and just yell "War Eagle" to anyone and start off a conversation with someone you don't even know.

My friend Ryan said "I really love the way Auburn (not just the University, but the city too) mixes old with new.  Places like Toomers Corner, Samford Hall, and Jordan Hare fit seamlessly alongside the Shelby Center (newish Engineering buildings), the fairly new expansion of downtown Auburn (just with all of  the restaurants and shops, those weren't there until a few years ago), and Tiger Town.  I just think Auburn does a good job of maintaining tradition and familiarity while at the same time is able to keep up with the times and not get stuck in the past." ... I don't think I have to add on to this one!

My friend Jamie said "Chewacla State Park"  Jamie and I go hiking at Chewacla quite often.  This park has hiking trails, biking trails, waterfalls, and a huge pond. It is a great place to go when you want adventure and a good time with friends.

My friend Jessi said "My favorite part is the oak trees and being able to hammock on Samford Lawn."  If there's one thing to know about Auburn it's that we love traditions! And our Oak trees is one of our biggest traditions we have.

My friend Sydney said probably my favorite response "Ummm All of it!" 

Lastly I asked my life long friend Joy, and she said "I belong.  It's a place where everyone no matter what race, socioeconomic background, IQ level, can find common ground.  We all love this small town and because of that we are connected.  I gave a friend of mine some auburn shirts and she is stationed in Texas, and people there not only on base would say 'War Eagle'.  There's something about knowing you have family everywhere you go!"

As you can see, Auburn is not just a town, or a college, or a team, but so much more than that.  We are ONE, and we BELONG!

War Eagle!

  3. Never been! My husband and I have recently started to crave a smaller town. We live outside Denver and it just takes so long to get ANYWHERE. It's so nice when you can live somewhere small enough that you really get to know your town (and love it, like you!) :)

  9. My son-in-law attended Auburn University so they are a huge War Eagle family! Most of their wardrobes are navy blue and orange even though they live in Georgia. LoL They don't allow Red and Black in the house! We are a huge football family and looking forward to the new season!
