Involvement Awards

Last night, our staff members attended the inaugural Involvement Awards celebration hosted by the Office of Student Involvement. The Involvement Awards recognized deserving student organizations and individuals for their accomplishments during the 2012-2013 academic year.


The Auburn Circle won the award for Outstanding Media Organization. We were recognized for our increased publicity, our first live poetry reading event, our design and our quality. At the event, we enjoyed a delicious meal and got to spend time with other honorable Auburn organizations. Other groups such as The Big Event, Alternative Student Breaks, War Eagle Girls & Plainsmen and IMPACT were also in attendance.

Congratulations to all organizations & individuals nominated for awards.

In the fall of 1996, The Circle showed off an experimental look. The Buddha himself seems to have been an influencing factor. Here are the front cover, back cover, and a recruitment ad. What do you think?
