New Tech students in Consumer Communications are starting a very exciting community project.  Students will be researching extensively the history of Auburn and how it has affected its present state.  Students will then use what they learned about the history to make a proposal on how to implement change within the community.

The first “mini-project” the students are working on is building a timeline of the history of Auburn.  The timeline will begin in 1800 when Indiana became a territory.  Government, industry, culture, growth, education and other interesting events will be documented.  This will be the first step in diving into the wonderful world of Auburn, Indiana!

One student, Drayton Kidder, says “I am excited to just learn the entire history; history is the most important thing.”
