Ha HA , are you referring to Auburn? I have news for you, as someone from out of state . Auburn is not a big deal at all. I laugh every time someone boast about attending Auburn. I had a neighbor that always talked down to me because I did not attend college. Her husband "ATTENDED" Auburn . I would just hang up the phone and laugh my head off! I was a master colorist and stylist in my day and am very confident that I made more than her husband. Don't judge people by college because you just make a fool of yourself!
