Auburn Family is a social network managed by students in the College of Liberal Arts (Public Relations) in cooperation with the Office of Communications and Marketing. The site seeks to inform and connect students, alumni and Auburn fans through campus life stories and videos from the loveliest village on the plains, mostly produced by students. Follow Auburn Family's Twitter account, too.
We'll feature stories with video from Auburn's 13 colleges and schools, student and faculty organizations, staff and more. Visit Auburn Family.
When the Service Industry Advertising Awards (SIAA) announced their 2010 advertising awards - well, our jaws dropped. Auburn Family was nominated in the "New Media" category. So, imagine our smiles when we received this announcement from the Office of Communications & Marketing in Samford Hall.
"We are especially happy to see an award for the entry submitted on behalf of the students (in Auburn's PR program) social media class (PRCM 4020). The students are doing a fantastic job with managing the Auburn Family Social Network ... and we congratulate them!" -- from Camille Barkley, Director of Marketing and Creative Services, Auburn University.
