Auburn University has many traditions that go way back. The history behind these tradi-tions is what makes Auburn such a great atmosphere. Most of the traditions do involve football, but some have their own meaning and were started randomly a long time ago. Before every home football game, an eagle flies from the middle of the field, all the way around the football stadium, and back to the middle of the field. This is known as Eagle Flight and is meant to be a signal to all of the fans that the football game is within minutes of starting. This tradition has been around for almost 100 years. The most famous eagle was Tiger, who was the 6th eagle to fly around the stadium. Tiger flew from 1986-2006, and in her last game there was a moment of si-lence for her. Now an eagle named Spirit flies around before games and is very popular among fans because of her bright white head and tail feathers, which is different than most bald eagles. Another tradition is the wrapping of Toomer’s Corner with toilet paper, called Rolling Toomer’s. This is the most famous tradition in all of college football. After every game that Auburn football wins, students meet up at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and College Street. This became popular in 1972 after Auburn beat Alabama in a close, 17-16, game. The reason toilet paper is used is because an Auburn running back said before the big Alabama game “we’re gonna beat the No. 2 out of

Distinctively visual representations allow the audience to envisage different purposes crafting emotions which stay with us forever. Graphic depiction is a fundamental characteristic within distinctively visual, thus the audience is able to be exposed to the intense illustrations exemplified by composers. Spudvilla’s portrayal of “Woolvs in the sitee” demonstrates the child’s inability to reconcile with himself. Contrasting to this notion; the playwright “Shoe-horn Sonata” to expose the brutal reality of POW camps during WWII. Therefore, distinctively visual forces the audience to succumb to the barriers society creates.

Oakland fell into the Alternative Education Law program. Students worked at their own pace and speed to complete school. Oakland High School generally graduated between 15-20 students a year.

Region 5 were for student who were in transition from just being released from either Echo Glenn or Green hill youth jail facilities. They worked with a JRA representatives and would complete school work and prepare to reenter the comprehensive high school setting.

For Hillsborough Community College to attract the most students and achieve higher retention rates, Differentiated Marketing would be the best practice. Because Hillsborough Community College is predominantly diverse, target marketing groups should include dual-enrolled students, recent high-school graduates, young adults, and career-oriented adults seeking higher education. A smaller marketing group to consider is the mature adult over the age of 60 who are seeking recreational classes. Promotional messages should be developed to target each group in order to increase attraction and retention in each group category. The main marketing focus of HCC has been on the high school market, and not in actively recruiting the adult market (Clarus 16). Though the high school market may always display a greater percentage of students attending HCC, other marketing groups may show an improved interest if promotional messages are targeted to each group, thus increasing overall attendance.

Emory offered me something no other school I was accepted to could; it allowed me to study finance and film. Emory also has the perfect location. It is in Atlanta, where many movies are being filmed due to the tax credits in Georgia. This makes getting a job or internship easier. My grandparents and cousins also live in Dunwoody, 25 minutes from campus. This made me feel better about leaving home as I knew there would be people close by if I ever felt homesick. Emory is also the perfect size campus for me. It is large enough to feel like a college not a high school, but small enough to get around campus by just walking. Once here, I discovered you always run into someone you know on campus no matter where you go.
Both Arkansas Tech and Arkansas State University Beebe are excellent colleges for students, but it depends on where the student wants to go. What makes each college so unique? Even though they are colleges but are different from each other in many ways. They have different campus life. College students may like ASU Beebe better than Arkansas Tech or others may like Arkansas Tech rather than ASU Beebe. Students living on campus report a smoother adjustment to college, become involved in organizations, participate in sponsored events and tend to have a higher grade point average.
When doing the initial research on Ashford University I immediately thought this was the college for me, I was eager to see this college met all of my educational needs and had a very good reputation. On the facebook page for Ashford University it had very good reviews and nearly every site I visited only gave positive and encouraging opinions of the college. So far the staff at the college have been nothing but help and considerate. When reviewing the curriculms of the school and when one of the staff told me inaddition to its already accelerated programs, i could potentially accelerate moe though doubling up classes and doing clep work, that was when this college truly stood out to me as having greta potential to be a great academic excerience.

The University Of Alabama Huntsville has a nationally recognized reputation for pushing the boundaries of science and technology. A tier 1 research university, If any academic institution were expected to release world changing ideas, UAH would top the list.
The UA is the oldest public college in the state of Alabama. It opened in April of 1831 and students began to enroll May of 1831. They first offered engineering, then later opened medical school. In 1860 the University of Alabama was officially established as a military school. Sadly a few years later in 1867 UA was burned to the ground by Union Troops, but that did not stop the university because it reopened again in 1872 and became a Law School. The one thing that makes me want to go to Alabama more than anything is their football. Their first football team was created in 1892 and has been the drive of that university ever since. When comparing these two colleges this is one of the things that would win me over. Since UA is the oldest in
