University Program Council is responsible for free student programming to educate, empower, and serve the study body by creating high-quality events on campus. UPC consists of seven committees that are responsible for organizing events such as free movies, comedians, major concerts, workshops, cultural performances, and more. 


In addition, UPC’s First 56 committee coordinates with organizations, colleges across campus and the surrounding community to create programming and events designed to connect students to campus! The First 56 is a jump start to the Auburn experience; which allows students to be provided with opportunities to engage in and develop healthy behaviors during a critical time when habits are typically formed, the First 56 days on campus.


The First 56 will take place August 8- October 2, 2022. Visit to view the First 56 events on AUinvolve (for best results log-in to AUinvolve before following the hyper link). There will also be a full PDF and booklet of events coming before The First 56 kicks off in August!


If you would like to be a campus partner with The First 56, submit an event registration form at and create your event on AUinvolve, tagging “First 56” as a partnering organization and event category.
