Golden Eagles honors those who have been alumni for over 50 years. Each year, a new class is inducted into the Golden Eagles and a reunion is held to commemorate the event in April.
In 2009, the Classes of 1958 and 1959 were the first classes to contribute to a Golden Eagles scholarship fund. The 2010-11 scholars are the first Golden Eagles Scholars as a result of their efforts. All Golden Eagles classes will continue the tradition and leave a legacy for Auburn University for many years to come.
