With a homecoming football game on Saturday's schedule, Auburn University is asking fans to refrain from rolling the Auburn Oak at Toomer's Corner that was intentionally set on fire last weekend. The restriction will be in place until further assessment of the tree's health can be made.
The world's first virtual chicken, created through a partnership among Auburn University's Poultry Science Department, the Auburn University Media Production Group and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will be featured in an upcoming episode of "David Attenborough's Natural Curiosities," a British television series from famed naturalist and filmmaker Sir David Attenborough.
Taylor Wesley, Auburn University's Miss Homecoming for 2015, is preparing to crown her successor on Saturday, Oct. 1. As a result of her personal experiences and concern for others, Wesley dedicated her title platform this past year to speaking out about substance abuse and mental health issues. Hers was a unique journey that is also distinctly Auburn.
