Homecoming Month

Georgia State University Students experienced a busy homecoming month.

  • partied all week for free
  • paraded around the university campus causing serious traffic problems

 Speaker’s Series

One of the most talked about events on campus proves to be the Speaker Series, which brings prominent activists, artists, entrepreneurs, scientists, environmentalists and other leading thinkers to campus to share their compelling stories and visionary ideas. “These high profile speakers offer innovative learning experiences in the form of new concepts, diverse opinions, interesting insights and unusual perspectives that enhance awareness, encourage solutions and enhance student success and global competency.”

This month, Georgia State invited Kent McGuire to speak on Educational Discourse. Dr. Kent McGuire is the President and CEO of Southern Education. He is responsible for SEF’s mission to advance equity and excellence in education in the American South. 

“The university offers this program in order to build engaged citizens and leaders who inspire transformation and will be voices of change for future generations.”

Haley’s Closing Note

Without a doubt, there are numerous activities that go on at Georgia State University. We would like to keep Sweet Auburn Curb Market updated and close in order to further grow the bond we have between the Market, the students and the community.

Manager’s Note 

More Than Just Food

We all know people come both to eat lunch and shop at the market on a regular basis. What we may forget, is the contribution and impact a public market, such as ours, and has on the surrounding community and the city in which it’s located.

Originally, public markets (almost always located in the middle of downtown areas), were the primary or only source of fresh food. In addition to shopping, going to market was a time to meet your neighbors, and catch up with the latest news. You might say, it was rather like their own form of “social media.”

In an effort to maintain the best of today, while bringing back and introducing the community element of the market, we will be hosting more events that are relevant to our neighbors and visitors alike.

One such endeavor is the new Teaching Kitchen soon to open inside the market. This will be a place where a new generation can learn the ways of yesterday’s kitchen, while also reacquainting those who may remember their parents or grandparents canning their own fresh fruit and vegetables, making ketchup from scratch, and learning how to eat seasonally.

Always a great lunch spot, the market will continue to look for new ways to contribute to people’s health, happiness, and well-being.
