Jordan-Hare Stadium stands in this file photo from July 30 as Auburn University awaits Camp War Eagle, the traditional first-year student orientation program, starting late May.

First-year Auburn University students enrolling in the fall of 2021 will have options for how they want to experience Camp War Eagle.

First-year students enrolling in the fall of 2021 can choose between 14 in-person and four virtual options for the required traditional orientation program spread out from May 24-June 25, according to the university’s First Year Experience Office.

The annual freshman program switched to all virtual last summer after the pandemic hit.

In-person sessions will be capped at 325 people on a first-come, first-serve basis, and virtual sessions will be capped at 150 students, according to the First Year Experience’s website.

Before students attend a college class, they’ll need to check their Canvas, the campus’ course module, for homework.

Students will be required to watch three online modules featuring information on the student’s college and major, basic university facts and “Connecting the Creed” online on Canvas. This assignment opens May 3 and must be submitted by June 29.

In step with the Class of 2024’s experience, the Class of 2025 will virtually meet academic advisors before their session to discuss which classes to take, academic responsibilities and how to register for traditional freshman classes.

Auburn University dedicated a Village first year residence hall to first African American Board of Trustee member Friday afternoon. 

After meeting with their advisor, completing the modules and attending Camp War Eagle, students will complete the final orientation step: registering for fall classes.

Similar to last year, first-year students will virtually register for classes from June 29 to July 25 through the university’s student portal AU Access determined by their orientation date.
