Auburn University and its wonderful Creed....

Auburn, Alabama~ The Loveliest Village On The Plains!

For generations, Auburn University students, alumni and fans have celebrated Auburn victories at the center of the Auburn Universe..... The corner of College Street and Magnolia Avenue.
This is also the home of Toomers Drugstore (an Auburn landmark for over 150 years), the world's best hand squeezed lemonade. Hanging over the corner are two massive old-growth oak trees, and anytime anything good happens at AU, toilet paper can usually be found hanging from the trees. This tradition is known as "rolling the corner". Of course, a few weeks ago when AU football won the BCS National Championship, a celebration was held at the corner!


I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn.

Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.

I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.

I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.

I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities.

I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all.

I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.

I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by "doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God."

And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
