The last obstacle: graduation photos

Within the next couple of days, campus will be flooded with graduating students dressed up in their finest with black caps and gowns while schlepping a friend or family member around campus to take photos. Lines that seem to extend on for miles will appear outside Samford Hall, the University sign, the seal and the “War Eagle” graffiti next to J&M Bookstore: the quintessential photo-shoot locations for any Auburn graduate.

Graduation is approaching and for many people this is a wondrous occasion. Many students have a pretty clear idea on what they are going to do after school and already have work lined up.

OPINION: Support all members of the Auburn Family

Although we are a student media group that is supported by the University, we are not here to act as it's PR. We are here to learn and become credible journalists who do their job and tell the truth. We are not here to entertain you. We are here to inform you of the news. Auburn fans should take pride in the fact that there are many groups and organizations on campus that help students reach their fullest potential in their study of interest by providing opportunities to practice and learn. They should support those students, because they are just as much of a representation of the University as any athlete.
