Welcome Home Auburn Alumni

Homecoming is a special time of year that both past and present Auburn men and women come together to celebrate the university and family. It is a time of celebration and rich tradition.


Although there are several notable Auburn traditions that are near and dear to alumni, they were asked to share just one for this week’s Hospitality Tent Twontest. Favorite AU rituals included the flight of the eagle, rolling Toomer’s corner, Hey Day, and the Auburn Creed. To show Auburn traditions are continuing to grow, Laura Caldwell shared a new Auburn tradition of “welcoming incoming freshmen to the family via Twitter and following them to show the love.”

Not only is Homecoming about welcoming alumni back to the plains, but it is also a great time for the students. Students, faculty, and fans have been showing campus pride all week by participating in events such as float building, the Beat Bama Food Drive, the ODK Cake Race, and Miss Homecoming campaigns.

Homecoming is one of the best weekends in the fall at Auburn where alumni can come back home and enjoy all the floats, food and of course, a football victory. We encourage alumni to stop by the Alumni Hospitality Tent this Saturday to gear up for the Homecoming game against New Mexico State.

If you can’t make it back to the plains this weekend, visit to see how Auburn fans are celebrating Homecoming in your local area! Also be sure to check out the Auburn Alumni Pinterest page to see Homecoming photos, old and new!

In honor of Homecoming, remember the creed that unites all Auburn men and women.

Welcome home, alumni. War Eagle.
