Because "welcome to campus" should last more than a week, the First 56—a series of curated events hosted by campus departments and student organizations—will offer eight weeks of programming designed to showcase student life on campus.

Auburn has endless opportunities for students—so many that we can’t possibly spotlight them all in one week. The first eight weeks of the fall semester will serve as Auburn’s official welcome to new and returning students, intentionally helping students make Auburn feel like their home away from home.

Help us set students up for success by hosting an event or joining us for The First 56. For more information and details on submitting an event, click here or email
