We are looking for the newest, most interesting and inspiring stories about Auburn students, faculty, staff and alumni. Stories that touch the head and heart and show Auburn as modern university that embraces its history and celebrates the Auburn Family every chance it gets.
In 2020 we are even more focused on capturing campus life, telling great student stories as well as stories that appeal to young alumni (40 and younger).
We tell our stories through many channels including
The Auburn Magazine
The Forever AU App
Alumni Association Website
Alumni Association YouTube Channel
All our social media channels
18:56 Virtual Speaker Series
If you are unsure if your story is “big” enough to appear in Auburn Magazine, let us know. It may be perfect for one of our other communication channels.
Auburn Magazine is a quarterly periodical written for the alumni and friends of Auburn University. Since 1994 we have striven to provide interesting, enlightening and entertaining stories on the rich history of Auburn, the success of its alumni, and the current programs, events and projects happening on campus.
Three of Auburn Magazine’s issues (Spring, Summer and Winter) are available exclusively as a benefit of membership to the alumni association, with an average readership of more than 40,000. The Fall issue is distributed to all known alumni, regardless of membership, reaching more than 200,000 readers.
Auburn Magazine’s Sections
These are the “big” stories of the magazine and focus on important, noteworthy or distinguished alumni or issues related to the university.

Banking Emmys: Rob Crabbe ’97
The Coco Chanel of Crime: Carol Robinson ’86

Short profiles of distinguished alumni with interesting careers and experiences. These include historic profiles of important, unusual or noteworthy alumni and young alumni starting their careers.
