Spring sets in and the temperatures begin to rise, students all around the South have the itch to get outside, take a fresh breath of southern air, and leave their educational responsibilities behind. Ask any student at Auburn University and they will tell you there is no better way to kick off springtime than the annual Round-Up Rodeo hosted by the Alpha Psi fraternity. Every Greek organization on Auburn’s campus hosts an annual philanthropic event to benefit a charity of their choice.
Tickets to the rodeo are $20 bucks at the gate or you can get them the week leading up to the event for $15. It has been held for over 40 years in early April. The best part of the rodeo is that it is BYOB. Bring as many drinks as you want to the event as long as they are in a can. The rodeo is hosted just a few minutes outside the Auburn Campus behind the Good Ol’ Boys Restaurant. From campus take South College St. (AL Hwy 29) 5 miles South before turning left onto Sandhill Rd. (Lee County Road 10). Follow Sandhill Rd. for just under 2 miles until you see Good Ol’ Boys restaurant on the left.
