An Auburn tradition since 1935, Miss Auburn is the official hostess of Auburn University. Every organization on campus nominates one person to vie for the position. Those nominees go through an interview from which the top 20 nominees are chosen. The top 20 must then go through a second interview, and the top 5 women get the honor and privilege of campaigning for the position. Miss Auburn has a platform which works for the betterment of Auburn University, as well as the Auburn community. She is elected by the entire student body during spring elections.
During her term as Miss Auburn, the newly elected candidate serves the university internally with the student body and also represents Auburn University externally to the outside community, to alumni, and to perspective students. Miss Auburn has the honor of being the female representative for students in a positive way, promoting and being present at student events. She is also an honorary member of the War Eagle Girls and Plainsmen, the host and hostess organization rich in history with past Miss Auburn women. Her other responsibilities are associated with the Office of Development, the Office of the President, the Athletic Department, the City of Auburn, and in any way that is helpful. Overall, Miss Auburn is a strong, female representative for this university.
