Cam Newton has made efforts to make sure his semester back on campus at Auburn is as normal as possible. The War Eagle Reader has been tracking the Heisman Trophy winner as he has joined the student section for basketball games, received a song-a-gram on Valentine's Day and generally enjoyed his time as a larger-than-life Auburn student.

The Carolina Panthers star quarterback surprised his classmates with donuts and orange juice "since it was Thursday," The War Eagle Reader reports.

"He just said since it was Thursday he though he’d bring us some donuts, so I guess there was no particular reason," says Auburn junior Brookelyne Harvel, who snapped a photo of the donut party. “He was really nice about it … Everyone in the class was grateful and thankful. Everyone told him thank you. The professor was really nice about him bringing them to class. He didn’t have a problem with it at all. Cam said that the professor could have some, too, if he wanted."
