Our Programs

Our alumni programs include activities to engage and reunite our alumni. Programs are geared to alumni of all ages and include (but are not limited to) a Student Alumni Association, a travel program, reunions (Golden Eagles), game-day hospitality tailgate festivities, awards and recognition events for outstanding alumni, minority alumni events, a scholarship program, and business partner programs which offer financial savings and reward programs to alumni. We also manage a national Auburn Club program which allows alumni throughout the nation to network and socialize with other grads. Clubs raise scholarship dollars for students meeting criteria of the clubs choosing.

Academic support, a mission of the Association and its Clubs, is achieved by raising financial support for a wide variety of programs aimed at enhancing Auburn 's academic reputation. A portion of contribution income from memberships, and a portion of corporate sponsorships/affinity partner programs, is awarded each year to scholarships, professorships, awards, and other areas of priority academic need as determined by the Auburn Alumni Association president and board of directors. In the last 10 years, the Auburn Alumni Association has awarded 730 student scholarships.
