Toomer's Corner is at the center of town, where the Auburn University campus meets the City of Auburn and where College Street intersects Magnolia Avenue. It has long been the gathering place for Auburn athletic 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 tissue. Celebrations after significant football victories can go on for hours and leave the heart of town looking like a blizzard passed through.
Custodial Services is responsible for cleaning up Toomer's Corner after the celebration festivities. Because the University is trying to be a good steward of the environment, Custodial Services now uses fog hoses to release toilet paper from the trees instead of fire hoses. This lessens the damage to the Oak Trees.
