Auburn football players are student athletes, which means they have the same issues as the average college student. Today, on the second day of official university classes, Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson experienced one of the most common problems of any underclassman student on the Plains.
Started sophomore year off strong by getting going to the wrong classroom in the the maze they call the Haley center— Kerryon Johnson (@AyeyoKEJO) August 17, 2016
Who hasn't done that? Who among us can say that they didn't at least once in their time at Auburn wander into the wrong room while wandering the Hallways of Horror in Haley Center. If you were a Liberal Arts major, then you had to deal with it for even longer than many other students. I don't think a day went by where I didn't have to double-check to be absolutely sure that I was going into the right quadrant.
To get some stories of similar incidents, I asked for stories from the crowd on Twitter. It was not a disappointment.
@CollegeAndMag I accidentally took a Japanese class.— Aubeng (@bigfatengie) August 17, 2016
@CollegeAndMag I once got so lost in Haley Center that I still have nightmares about having to find my classes.— Jana M. Hagan (@janahagan) August 17, 2016

@CollegeAndMag FR year I walked in to begin college and now its JR year and I still haven't found my way out. Tweeting from Haley. Send help— AUBURN SUPERFAN (@golfwizkid) August 17, 2016
I think she's implying Chris was enjoying the Devil's Lettuce...
The best story about Haley Center, though, has to go to Will Collier, who told the tale of the ultimate evil...
@CollegeAndMag The best was the year some unknown genius stole all the door numbers night before Fall Quarter started. EVERYBODY got lost.— Will Collier (@willcollier) August 17, 2016
@CollegeAndMag Unadulterated brilliance. I wish I’d done it so I could claim credit for such inspired mischief.— Will Collier (@willcollier) August 17, 2016
That's just amazing, right there. Hopefully that doesn't give any current students any ideas, though.
Alas, we will soon see a day where this will not be an issue. The new classroom building being constructed in front of RBD Library will replace Haley Center in the coming years. An Auburn legend will bite the dust. I hope I can be there to see it come down.
