A 300,000-strong worldwide network of alumni make Auburn a special place. For more than 150 years our graduates have described our campus as "just like home" and their fellow alumni as "family." The Auburn experience is something most would want to do again. In fact, 96 percent of our graduates said if they had to pick a university again, they would choose Auburn. Love of and belief in our university is what compel alumni like John and Rosemary Brown to give back to the place that gave them so much. This spring, the 1957 graduates committed $57 million to fund two major new facilities: a new performing arts center and a student achievement center in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. It was the largest gift in school history.
