Student Football Ticketing Policy reminders from SGA President

Auburn Students,

As football season is fast approaching, we want to remind you about the implementation of penalty points which begin this coming Sunday, Aug. 27, as a part of the new Student Football Ticketing Policy. Remember, penalty points are administered for the following reasons: 

•  0 Penalty Points - Unwanted ticket was returned before 11:59 p.m. on the Sunday before the game. (That’s this Sunday for the Georgia Southern game!)

•  1 Penalty Point - Unwanted ticket was returned after Sunday at 11:59 p.m. but before Friday at 5 p.m. prior to the game.

•  2 Penalty Points - Student failed to attend the game or failed to arrive to the game by the beginning of the second quarter.

We are proud to share with you the new Football Student Ticketing Center: aub.ie/aufstc. The Football Student Ticketing Center is the website that hosts student ticket and guest pass requests from the ticket pool, unwanted ticket returns, and penalty points. For further information about the new Football Student Ticketing Policy please visit aub.ie/ticketing. 

I am excited for this season and genuinely think that the changes being implemented will benefit us by simplifying the ticketing process – enhancing our game day experience and filling the student section. If you have any questions or feedback for us, please use AuburnAnswers (auburnanswers.org), which serves as our official student feedback system, or email me directly at sga@auburn.edu. Look to SGA’s social media next week for more reminders about game day!

War Eagle!

Auburn moving rolling from new Auburn Oaks to adjacent trees this season

Auburn University officials are asking fans not to roll the new Auburn Oaks at Toomer’s Corner this football season because the trees aren’t fully established, but they welcome fans to enjoy the tradition by rolling designated trees next to the corner.

The university has specified an oak and two magnolias in front of Biggin Hall and four oaks on College Street for rolling. After athletic wins, Auburn fans gather at the corner of Magnolia Avenue and College Street to roll trees with toilet paper—one of the nation’s most-recognized college traditions.
