Traditions

Tiger Walk

Tiger Walk®  is an Auburn tradition which began in the early 1960s when Auburn players would walk from Sewell Hall to the football stadium and fans would line Donahue Drive to wish them well. Over the years, Tiger Walk has grown into a major part of game day at Auburn. Fans line the street more than two hours before game time to cheer, sing and support the team.

The "Rolled" Auburn Oaks at Toomer's Corner

The Auburn Oaks at Toomer’s Corner, located where College Street intersects Magnolia Avenue, have long been the gathering place for Auburn celebrations. After any football win, and significant victories in other sports, Auburn students and citizens alike join forces to “roll” the trees (and anything else that doesn’t move) at Toomer’s Corner with toilet paper. Celebrations after big wins leave the heart of town looking like a blizzard passed through.

Aurea Circles Jordan-Hare Stadium

War Eagle VIII, Auburn’s golden eagle named Aurea, gracefully circles the stadium and lands at midfield to continue a tradition that is uniquely Auburn before each home football game. Aurea has a wing span of more than six feet! She was named War Eagle VIII when War Eagle VII (named Nova) retired in 2019.

War Eagle VIII’s role is to help promote wildlife conservation as a part of the conservation education efforts of the Southeastern Raptor Rehabilitation Center, where she is housed by permission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Campus Landmarks

Samford Hall and the Auburn University sign

Samford Hall and the Auburn University sign are two of the most recognizable and photographed landmarks on Auburn’s campus. Samford Hall was built in 1888 and serves as the main administration building. The clock tower plays Auburn’s War Eagle® fight song every day at noon.

Jordan-Hare Stadium

Jordan-Hare Stadium opened in 1939 and is home to the Auburn Tigers football team. With a seating capacity of 87,451, on football Saturdays in Auburn, Jordan-Hare becomes Alabama’s fifth-largest city. The stadium is named for Ralph “Shug” Jordan, Auburn’s all-time winningest football coach, and Clifford Leroy Hare, a member of Auburn’s first football team, president of the old Southern Conference and longtime chairman of Auburn’s Faculty Athletic Committee. Legendary coach Pat Dye has also had his name forever attached to Jordan-Hare Stadium, as the turf officially became known as Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium prior to the 2005 Iron Bowl.

Cater Hall

Cater Hall is named for Katharine Cooper Cater, dean of women from 1946 until 1976, and dean of student life from 1976 until her death in 1980. Cater Hall originally served as the President’s Home. Today it houses administrative offices and the Honors College. The back steps of Cater Hall becoming a gathering spot for students and families as “call-outs” for everything from SGA elections to cheerleader tryouts occur there.
