Tiger Trek 2015

Auburn is everywhere. Whether you are catching a flight to Europe or in the grocery store in your hometown, chances are you have had a "War Eagle" moment, but sometimes those little glimpses of the Auburn family just aren't enough. The Auburn Alumni Association has a cure, Tiger Trek 2015. Before we dive into the excitement that is Auburn football, the Auburn Alumni Association offers fans, alumni and those that need to be swayed a chance to have a night out with the Auburn family and some of its favorite members.

Emerald Coast Auburn Club Tiger Trek 2015

Who are these people?

Auburn Clubs are the heart and soul of the Auburn Alumni Association. They play a very important role in Auburn's presence throughout the United States. There are currently 90 active Auburn Clubs all over the country, stretching as far west as California and as far east as the Carolinas, and everywhere in between. These clubs work tirelessly throughout the year to bring Auburn Football watch parties, Freshman Send Offs, Annual Meetings, community service projects and student scholarships to communities everywhere. For more information on Auburn Clubs, visit

Emerald Coast Auburn Club participates in Auburn Alumni in Action at a beach clean up event.

What should I expect?

Every Tiger Trek is a little different, but all of them have one thing, or person in common, Auburn Head Football Coach Gus Malzahn. Of course Aubie makes an appearance as well, what Auburn event is complete without him? On a serious note, these special events serve as a fundraiser for student scholarships that are given by the Auburn Clubs. On top of the great food and fun for all ages, the Auburn-Opelika Tourism Bureau will be there to provide information on everything from hotel accommodations for football season, dining options in our beautiful city and shopping to golf information and even a few giveaways and chances to win fabulous prizes. Be sure to stop by and see us, or as always, visit
