A number of Auburn students turned out to show support for their peers, as the Cater Lawn was packed tight.
After conducting the first round of the Miss Auburn interviews earlier in the day, SGA narrowed its field to 20 candidates.
Emily Higgins, junior in nursing, was chosen as one of the top 20 candidates.
“Its really an honor,” said Higgins. “It’s pretty awesome to be chosen.”
Each university-operated residence hall, social fraternity or sorority and organization recognized by Auburn University was allowed to nominate one potential candidate for Miss Auburn.
A tradition since 1935, Miss Auburn has served as the official hostess of the University.
Miss Auburn serves alongside the SGA president and the executive team, as well as a Freshmen Leadership Program, whose mission is to transform her platform into a reality.
Miss Auburn is open to undergraduate female students who are currently in at least their third academic year at the University and holds a 2.5-4.0 cumulative grade point average.
On Thursday, Nov. 7, the 20 candidates will once again undergo interviews, which will lead the SGA election team to the final five Miss Auburn candidates.
The final five candidates will be named Thursday, Nov.7 at 9 p.m. on the Cater lawn.
Campaigning is set to officially begin Feb.5 and conclude Feb. 11, the Spring Elections Voting Day.
The Top 20 Miss Auburn Candidates are:
