The town of Auburn is very dog friendly. The small-town atmosphere allows you to walk to many of your desired locations on the plains and bring your pet with you. Whether it be walking to campus, walking to downtown, or walking to the tailgates on game day.

But, students aren't only limited to bringing their dog along on walks around the town. Auburn students that own a dog, have many places to take their companions. Here are four of my favorite places to take my little dachshund.

1. Martin Luther King Jr. Park

This park is less well known then the other places people usually bring their dogs. The park is located on the corner of W. Glenn Ave and Byrd street. It offers a large grassy area, which is just right to let your dog run around. There is also a shaded pavilion with picnic tables, which is perfect for doing homework while your dog plays. The park also has a water fountain, so you don't have to pack water for you and your pet.

2. The Red Barn

This is one of the most popular places for students to bring their dog to play. This park is actually called The Agricultural Heritage Park and it's located directly across South Donahue residence hall. The park features a large grassy area, picnic tables and a large pond for dogs to swim in. Since this is a popular place for students to bring their companions, you can expect other dogs to be there. This is a great way to socialize your pet and spend time outdoors.

3. Kiesel Park

This dog park is located on Chadwick Lane. It features a green space for dogs to run around and play off their leashes. This park also has a garden, a pond and a 2.25 mile walking trail. This park is a great place for not only your dog to get exercise, but you can get a work out as well. Going on a run with your dog on the trail or even just walking is a great way to burn some calories.

4. Chewacla State Park

This state park is a beautiful place to take your dog and friends to. Whether you plan to have a picnic by the waterfall or you plan on hiking through the 696 acres, there is always something fun to do when you go to Chewacla. Since this is a state park, there are many trees for you to set up an Eno hammock and hang out with your pet. There is also a shallow creek that your dog could safely play in.

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
