A Look at the 2019 Reunion

The 2019 Golden Eagles Reunion was filled with fun events as we reminisced on our fondest Auburn memories, as well as looked at how much the university has changed. Thursday offered a time to reconnect with friends and a lovely dinner at the Auburn University President’s home. Friday was filled with updates from Auburn University leaders, an induction ceremony and dinner and capped off with a night of dessert and dancing. Thank you for a memorable weekend!
