AUBURN AT A GLANCE
Auburn University was established in 1856 as the East Alabama Male College,
20 years after the city of Auburn's founding. In 1872, under the Morrill
Act, the school became the first land-grant college in the South and was
renamed the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama. In 1899 the
name again was changed, to the Alabama Polytechnic Institute. Finally,
in 1960 the name of the school was changed to Auburn University, a title
more in keeping with its location, and expressing the varied academic
programs and larger curriculum of a major university.
