Auburn Connects!, Auburn University's common book program, was started in Fall 2010 as a way to provide incoming first-year students with a common educational experience to introduce them to the Auburn family. First-year students will receive the book at Camp War Eagle and need to read the book prior to coming to campus in August.
Programming revolving around themes presented in the book is incorporated into an array of programming beginning with Welcome Week, continuing with the author’s visit on August 30 at 7pm and wrapping up throughout the month of September. Faculty will also be including the book as part of their curriculum throughout the fall semester so first-year students will talk about the book across disciplines.
