Let’s Go Fly a Kite
Can you imagine a better way to celebrate than spending the day kite flying and eating Mike-N-Ed’s BBQ, while being serenaded by Auburn musical talent?
Aubie joins in on the kite-flying fun
With the help of Dean Gramberg, the Student Eminent Society, and Aubie, the College of Liberal Arts celebrated its 25th birthday and National Arts and Humanities month in style.
Despite the rainy weather brought to the plains today, the College of Liberal Arts still proceeded to hold its annual Kite Flying and BBQ event on Cater Lawn.
CLA explains, “The arts and humanities hold an abiding value to the Auburn family. They help us understand ourselves as individuals and as people who see the world differently. The arts and humanities teach us to think creatively, critically, and independently; to communicate effectively, and to respect individual and cultural differences.”
From noon to two, students, faculty, and alumni alike were invited to come out and celebrate an important part of Auburn University’s culture.
CLA showed off its creative students by having them draw, recite poetry, and play music for event guests. The event featured student musical performances including the Tiger Saxophone Quartet and the AU Horn Quartet. Even Spanish students gave creative responses to Spanish literature.
