Congratulations are in order to the Honors Congress for placing third in this year’s Homecoming Float contest. The float, with an image of Cater Hall on one side and Samford Hall on the other, was built with the help and support of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, and the Phi Mu sorority. Abby Bridges was the float chair and created the initial design. Not only did the float feature hand-drawn and painted images of iconic Auburn buildings but also a three dimensional version of a rolled Toomer’s tree, Aubie, and a papier maché Gus Malzhan. The group started planning for the float at the beginning of the fall semester and built it the two weeks leading up to Homecoming.
The Homecoming Float contest is held by ODK, Omicron Delta Kappa, The National Leadership Honor Society at Auburn University. Floats were judged on the Friday before the Homecoming game and the winners were announced during the game.
