    It’s an excellent read, but they shouldn’t call their impressive number of astronauts as a “countless number”. And, it’s VERY DOUBTFUL that Aubie has more national championships than any other mascot!!

      Hey Roger! Thanks for your input. But it is true that Aubie has more National Championships than any other mascot. Aubie won his 8th title in Orlando in January. We are so proud of him! You can read the official press release from Auburn Athletics website: http://www.auburntigers.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/011714aak.html

  2. While I never officially attended Auburn University, I was born nearby (EAMC) and raised just outside of town on Lake Martin, I can definitely relate to most of this list! The Auburn area has always been inclusive of not only students but their local communities. I even feel like part of the Auburn Family and get chills when I see the Auburn Creed commercials.

    I may have opted to pursue higher education at another instate university (NOT a rival of any sort) but I can’t help myself. Dammit, I have and will always believe in Auburn, and love it!

    War Eagle to everyone out there! Let’s do this 2015!

      War Eagle Neil! That is what the Auburn Family is all about!

  3. Eleta Parris says:

    Great list. My grandfather graduated from Auburn (API) in 1905, and I am an alum as well. It is a much a part of me as are my green eyes. It’s great to be a member of the Auburn Family.

  4. Martha Nell (Awbrey) Carlton says:

    Auburn grad/June 1964. My Grandfather, Capt. Tom Greene, was one of the AU night policeman, & the one that lit the GA Bulldog barn fire for many years. Our Grandmother was delighted when that time came around – she knew she would be getting a new mop:-) Martha Awbrey/Smith Carlton…..WARRRRRR EAGLE !!!!
