AUBURN MAGAZINE

Auburn Magazine is a quarterly periodical written for the alumni and friends of Auburn University.  

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. 

FEATURES

These are the “big” stories of the magazine and focus on important, noteworthy or distinguished alumni or issues related to the university. They are more detailed and in-depth than our Alumni Spotlights or Concourse stories. Auburn Magazine cover stories often come from the “Features” section.
