Student Information

Overview


Throughout each two-day session of Camp War Eagle, incoming Auburn freshmen will have the opportunity to meet other freshman students, interact with Auburn's faculty and staff, tour the campus and learn its history, discover the services offered by University organizations and offices as well as local businesses, and get an overall view of life at Auburn.

Students will be led through their orientation by a Camp Counselor. The Camp War Eagle Counselors are an elite group of undergraduate students who are chosen through an interview and selection process in the fall. These students then undergo an extensive training program throughout Spring Semester and the weeks leading up to the first session. Each Counselor is assigned to a group of ten to twelve students during each session and acts as the students' guide through the orientation program. Camp Counselors often assist students well beyond the end of Camp War Eagle by becoming upperclassman mentors to the freshman students. Meet the 2013 Camp War Eagle Camp Counselors!

Program Highlights

Tiger Talks
Students will participate in seven small group discussions called Tiger Talks. The discussions feature a variety of issues ranging from the anxieties of attending college to alcohol awareness. The group discussions are led by the Camp Counselors and help ease the transition from high school to college life away from home.

Pep Rally
Students and parents will convene on the first evening in Jordan-Hare Stadium for a Pep Rally sponsored by the Student Government Association. Students will learn Auburn's traditional cheers, see performances by several AU dance groups, and sing the Alma Mater together for the first time as Auburn students.

Late Night Options
At the end of the first day, students will have the opportunity to unwind and select one of the many late night options available to them. Options include a trip to Toomer's Corner for ice cream, recreational activities in the AU Student Center like swing dancing lessons, video games or various activities outside in the Quad. No matter which option you choose, it will be a great opportunity to meet fellow students and make some new friends.

Information Sessions
The various information sessions offered throughout CWE provide a resource to learn more about the numerous academic, recreational, and social opportunities provided by various University offices, programs, and student organizations.
