Bonus assignment celebrates Auburn’s longstanding tradition of Hey Day
Hey Day is a tradition rooted deeply in Auburn University’s history to encourage everyone to embody the Auburn spirit and say Hey!
Assistant professor Laurie S. Stevison in the Department of Biological Sciences offered a bonus assignment to her computational biology class directly related to this year’s Hey Day.
“I asked my students to write a computer program that asks the user their name and then responds ‘Hey, user!’. It’s a fairly simple program, but it helps them learn while also having fun,” Stevison explained.
This Hey Day, if you are not able to stop by a nametag station on campus then check out these scripts on Github. You can use the command prompt to run these shell scripts as seen in one of the photos.
