Auburn and Opelika Say Goodbye to a Treasure: Henry Stern, The Boy in the Back Row

Posted by Auburn Family on July 18, 2014 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Kate Asbury Larkin shared this message on Facebook on Thursday, July 17, 2014.

Opelika lost a jewel this morning. Henry Stern, or "Big Henry," as he was affectionately called by his children, Ginger and J, was an historian of all things Opelika, and one of the last known Holocaust survivors east of the Mississippi River. Below is a story written for East Alabama Living magazine (Fall, 2008) by my very own Anna Asbury Larkin. It started as an OHS 10th grade history…

The Loveliest Village on the Plains

Posted by Kathryn Grace Thorson on July 13, 2014 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Auburn isn't called the "loveliest village on the plains" for nothing, and anyone who's been here can attest to that. On Merriam-Webster's website, the word "quicksand" has two abbreviated definitions. One definition is literal: deep, wet sand into which heavy objects sink easily. The other definition is figurative: a situation that is dangerous and difficult to escape from.

Auburn: It Sucks You In

Auburn is not deep, wet sand into which…

Auburn Family Spirit Draws Families to Toomer's Corner

Posted by Derek Thompson on July 13, 2014 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

I was walking to class when the iconic Toomer’s Corner oak trees, still streamed with toilet paper, were having their limbs severed with chainsaws loud enough to completely diminish the peaceful downtown Auburn atmosphere.

Everyone in Auburn knew the day was coming, as the poison slowly attempted to put an end to the best tradition in college football, but they never thought it would actually arrive. The trees, which had served as a rally point in our small town for around 76 years,…

The Auburn Experience

Posted by Malcolm Twyman on July 11, 2014 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

To be honest, when I decided to attend Auburn University, I wasn’t completely sure I had chosen the right school. When I visited the campus, I immediately thought about how beautiful it was, and when I talked to people they seemed genuinely nice, but I still wasn’t 100% convinced…

Why I Chose the Auburn Family

How I Became A Member of the Auburn Family

I grew up in the lovely Birmingham, Ala., area where virtually 75% of residents are fans of the Criiiiiiimson Tiiide. At 16-years-old, my dad and I had barely missed an Alabama game, and all my life I thought I'd found my home away from home in Tuscaloosa.



Don’t get me wrong, Tuscaloosa is a beautiful place. But, as a sophomore in high school, the day I found myself there for sorority bid day, it felt like I'd…

Samford Hall Drawing :: Melissa B. Tubbs Ink Architecture

Posted by Melissa B Tubbs on July 10, 2014 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

Via Melissa B. Tubbs Ink Architecture:

My newest drawing is of Samford Hall. In 1859, the original Samford Hall was constructed as a main building for the East Alabama College and referred to as “Old Main”. It was a four-story Italianate building and was erected at a cost of $75,000. School was suspended in 1862 due to the Civil War.
