As we all know, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton decided to go back to Auburn last month to finish his degree. Newton appears to be having an awesome time now that he is back on the campus, and his fellow classmates enjoy his presence as well.
According to The War Eagle Reader, Newton started handing out his classmates a bunch of free doughnuts and cups of orange juice — even to some people in the halls. Newton has over 40 people in his class and the fact that he had enough for people in the hallways shows how much food he bought, and thoughtful he was as well.
“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. “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.”
Auburn sophomore Lindsay Klocko says many were surprised by Newton’s gesture.
“People were honestly shocked and a few people didn’t notice it was him at first. A bunch of people were freaking out about it once he left.”
And people say that Newton is a first-class douche. He’s obviously switched his character up big time.

Free safety Haruki Nakamura had a forgettable first season with the Carolina Panthers, surrendering a pair of big plays, including a 49-yard touchdown, during a 30-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 30. By the end of the 2012 season, Nakamura was used primarily on running downs before he was placed on injured reserve after aggravating a groin injury in December.
