War Eagle! To best serve the needs and interests of our alumni, we simplified our Auburn Alumni Association membership structure. All graduates will remain General Members, with no monetary contribution required, and Life membership will continue as is. We will no longer offer annual membership, but we will continue to honor and service those who already paid annual memberships through the end of their terms. See our FAQ below for more information.
