Auburn Creed

I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.

I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.

I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.

I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities.

I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all.

I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.

I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by "doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God."

And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
-George Petrie (1945)


Message to Seattle Auburn Club

Dear Seattle area Auburn Alums,

Greetings! We do plan to meet for football game watching events this fall.

The first event of the season is gathering to watch Auburn battle WSU on 8/31 at 4pm PST. We are meeting at the familiar Buckley’s Queen Anne location (232 1st Avenue West, Seattle, WA 98119). More information and directions can be found at Buckley’s website.

Since I moved to Seattle nearly 15 years ago it has been a pleasure every fall to stay connected with Auburn and to meet other kindred spirits from the Plains. Jared is going to take a well-deserved break from presidential duties. I plan to step back into a club officer’s role after a hiatus. Thanks to last year’s outgoing team for volunteering to keep the local club alive — Jared Porter, outgoing club President (current Sec./Treas.), Shameka Mattox, outgoing VP, and Min Chen, outgoing Secretary, past Pres. (current VP).

Now time to watch the Tigers fly down the field! Let’s see what Gus Malzhan can do to get us back on track. May we start the new season with a win over the Cougs!
