About Plainsmen’s Prep

  • Build a network of foundational relationships with Auburn students, faculty, and staff

Program Schedule

Participants are expected to be virtually present for all online instruction sessions and activities for the entirety of the program. Due to conflicting schedules, students are not eligible to participate in both Plainsmen’s Prep and sorority recruitment, band camp, or other University courses during August 2-11.

Participants in Plainsmen’s Prep will virtually check in for the program during the afternoon of Sunday, August 2. At check-in, participants will secure their content materials, meet their Plainsmen’s Prep Leader, and receive a copy of the program schedule. Instruction begins on Monday, August 3. In previous years, participants were engaged in program instruction and activities for an average of 6-8 hours throughout each day.
