The Auburn University Facilities Management has many exceptional people who do a great job supporting the University each and every day. All of them deserve to be recognized and thanked for their tremendous service. This web page honors those stellar performers who have done a particularly outstanding job on large, difficult and challenging tasks in recent months. It is my hope that this small token of recognition will serve to thank them and let them know that their superb service, dedication, and hard work is greatly appreciated.
Please join me in congratulating these Auburn University Facilities Management “Outstanding Performers”.

Their task was to develop a meaningful, yet workable, program that allowed Facilities Management supervisors to show their thanks and appreciation to our exceptional performers. more>>
Football games are a MAJOR event at Auburn University. Tens of thousands of spectators flood the campus to tailgate and attend the games. Hundreds of families in recreational vehicles from all over the state and opposing schools camp on campus two or three days in advance to enjoy the Auburn experience. Supporting these games and the huge number of people that come on campus requires an extraordinary level of preparation and support to ensure that the game day experience is a positive and safe one for Auburn alumni and fans. more>>
