Annual Student Events
Throughout the year, we host a number of events for current students, prospective students and the community.
Welcome Back Picnic
We like to kick off each new school year by treating students to a picnic on the front lawn of Comer Hall. In addition to free food, you’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about our diverse student organizations, which will each be represented.
O-Night, held early every fall semester, is a college-wide get-together in which our 23 student organizations set up information booths and recruit new members.
Fall Roundup and Taste of Alabama Agriculture—more commonly known as Ag Roundup— is a gigantic pre-game tailgate party held at Ag Heritage Park every homecoming Saturday to showcase an abundance of food products grown and/or processed in Alabama. The hundreds of Auburn fans who flock to Ag Roundup each fall can feast on samples of down-home foods ranging from fried catfish and grilled sausage to collards greens and boiled peanuts. The event also features musical entertainment, exhibits, children’s activities and auctions. Auction proceeds fund College of Agriculture scholarships.
The College of Agriculture invites students to attend our career fair during the fall semester at Ham Wilson Arena. The Career Fair has companies that are looking to hire you. You’ll meet representatives from a variety of employers from every sector of the agricultural industry. Be sure to bring copies of your current resume.
A picnic on Ag Hill, T-shirt tie-dying on the concourse, free breakfast on the green space and a little friendly competition at Ag Heritage Park are among the entertaining activities that are part of Ag Week each spring. Events also usually include a faculty panel discussing the public’s perceptions of agriculture and modern food production and an Ag Hill career fair.
Every semester, on graduation morning, all College of Agriculture graduating seniors and their families and friends are guests of honor at a breakfast that’s hosted by the Auburn Agricultural Alumni Association and sponsored by the Alabama Poultry and Egg Association. Oh, and if you don’t know how to make an omelet before you get there, you will by the time you leave.
