Dating all the way back to 1947, students who served in WWII were returning back to normalcy here at Auburn University, but upon their return, they felt unseen and unheard here on campus. In response, Auburn University’s student body and members of the Student Government Association pushed for a day that would unite the Auburn Family and promote a friendly atmosphere known as Hey Day – a day where every student got the opportunity to wear a name tag, helping everyone feel a sense of belonging.

Each year, we carry on this tradition by handing out name tags and encouraging students, faculty, and the rest of the Auburn Family to greet one another, bringing all members of Auburn closer together. Hey Day has become one of Auburn University’s longest, most cherished traditions and is a day the student body has grown to love and look forward to each year.

This year’s Hey Day will be hosted on October 18, 2023 all around campus! We look forward to engaging the Auburn Family by distributing name tags and handing out Hey Day-branded promotional items. Furthermore, we will also be hosting a festive event on the Campus Green for all to enjoy, so we invite everyone to join us for a free, catered meal, a pep-rally performed by the Auburn Cheerleaders, an inflatable obstacle course, and many special guests. We can’t wait to see you all there!
