I'm currently taking calculus II and calculus based physics at SU. Doing well so far. I plan on finishing all my math classes before transferring to AU, Cal 3, linear algebra, differential equations, and physics II. My question to you guys, what is this E-Day at AU all about. Its coming up Feb 22, and I plan on going. Just want to know to expect. Thanks in advance

ON TO VICTORY - STRIKE UP THE BAND
Staying focused is a BIG KEY! I was not always focused as a student, twice dropped out of school because of poor grades (but never flunked out), but always came back determined to bring my GPA up so I could graduate. I finally graduated in 1970, six years after I graduated from high school, with a 2.01 in Civil Engineering! When I interviewed for jobs, no one ever asked me my GPA, and I never lost a job I wanted because of that. An engineering degree from AU was significant enough (and I'm from Pennsylvania)! And I've had a "sterling career" despite my "marginal" GPA. In engineering school, "persistance pays off"! Good luck!
Setting a high bar saves a ton of grief later.
"Listen, Carnell Williams has been an inspiration to this football program and to this university. We're going to miss him when he's gone."
I got my BSEE from Auburn in 1995. I recently got my Ph.D. in physics from Tennessee in 2011.
Just like someone already said. Stay focused! This is your job, and you should treat it as such. Assuming that you're smart enough, the real key is just hard work. Start on all of your homework as soon as you get it. Find other (good) students and pair up with them when doing homework. Talk to each other and explain your understanding of the material to each other.
BTW, I was a much, much better student when studying physics than when doing by BS. Maturity counts for a lot.
Congrats on returning to get your engineering degree. It takes courage and commitment to do that after ten years away from school and trying to feed and raise two children. I can absolutely assure you, based on my experience, that you won't regret it. I'm a IM/IE '64 and after spending 35 years at the Boeing Company primarily in engineering research and development of space hardware ( Saturn V, LRV, MVM'73, Space Station) as a senior executive. Had lots of fun doing it while making more money than I ever dreamed possible at the time. By the way, don't be afraid to take Cal 2 and physics at the same time. You need to find out what you're made of!
CE 98, nice to see all the other engineers on here. What makes you want to come back to school and get an engineering degree?
E-Day was when I made my mind up to go to Auburn! I have found that being an Auburn Engineer has helped me throughout my career. I also met my wife in an engineering class! Great to be an Auburn Engineer!
What offensive statistic do you measure success by?

This is for the Auburn Family and everyone who played here before we did. I love ya'll, War Eagle!' Nosa Equae 10/19/13 Kyle Field Texas A&M
CE '87, all good. Go and check it out.
Along with the Open House and tours of the different engineering Disciplines, you also get to see what projects the Senior Design Classes have designed (at least the ones that are far enough along!). My daughter graduated last May in Electrical, and my husband is an '83 EE and '93 Masters in Manufacturing Engineer, and both got great educations from Auburn. You won't regret it! (I am also an '83 grad in Accounting. . .)
ME '10. If you haven't already looked into it, ask about minoring in BET (Business Engineering Technology). It really helps merge the business world with the engineering
CE 59. Good luck
