The Montgomery native graduated from Auburn University in 1994 to become an actress, author and producer. She shot to stardom with her role in The Help (2011), and has won awards and starred in multiple admired films such as Hidden Figures (2016) and Ma (2019).

Trust me, coming from an Auburn student, War Damn Finals Cram has given the students something to talk about. It’s all the buzz on social media, and the student body is proud to be supported by such an esteemed alumni. Spencer took to social media to remember her time at Auburn and encourage the campus to finish strong.

What an amazing event to help students get a much-needed break as they close out the semester. Let’s finish strong, Auburn.
