What were your 3 favorite things to do in Auburn, AL?

1.

Game day was always my favorite tradition from beginning to end - I always made sure I was in the stadium in time to see the Eagle fly! Auburn War Eagle

2.

Senior year, my friends and I started a Friday afternoon tradition where we would meet at Moe's BBQ after our Friday classes for lunch and drinks, and sometimes walk across the street to Behind the Glass and dream about one day being able to afford all the clothes there! Moe's BBQ Auburn AL

3.

When the weather was nice I used to love going to Chewacla State Park with friends to hike or just hang out by the lake. Chewcala State Park Auburn, AL


What is your most memorable game day memory?

That's a tough question! My freshman year we went undefeated, won the national championship, Cam Newton won the Heisman trophy, AND I got a picture with Cam on campus during class change.  But the memory that sticks out the most was when I was seated in the 20th row on 45 yard line behind the team for the 2013 "Kick Six" when Chris Davis ran the ball back 109 yards for a touchdown to win the Iron Bowl after Bama missed a field goal in the last second of the game - NOTHING will beat that!

We'd like to thank Kendall for sharing these great memories with us.

If you would like to be featured in our next round of Alumni Insights or would like to nominate someone who attended UGA, Auburn or Florida, please tag them and we'll get in touch with them.
