One of the most notable aspects of Auburn University is its rich history of tradition and the mystery behind how many of these traditions originated. Of the many traditions the students, faculty and staff have, some of the most well-known include the flight of the eagle before football games, rolling Toomer’s Corner in toilet paper and the “War Eagle” battle cry. While the soaring of the eagle is an incredible sight, where this tradition truly began is unknown, therefore most students choose to pick the story that they like the most. Rolling the trees on Toomer’s Corner after a victory or important event originally began by rolling the traffic lights of a prominent intersection on the edge of campus. This then migrated to rolling the trees closest to this intersection. The “War Eagle” battle cry is another tradition with an unsolved background. Nevertheless, this does not prevent students from embracing these traditions whole-heartedly.
