Intercollegiate Athletics at Auburn University
Speaker: David Housel. He graduated from Auburn University in 1969 with a degree in Journalism, taught in the A.U. Department of Journalism from 1972 to 1980, subsequently served the University as Sports Information Director and Athletic Director, and is the author of Saturdays to Remember (1973) and From the Desk of David Housel: A Collection of Auburn Stories (1991).
Intercollegiate athletics has long been part of campus life at Auburn. In 1892 the school instituted intercollegiate football, which has consistently held the highest profile, but sports from womenâ€™s basketball to polo have been part of the Auburn experience for decades. Successful athletic teams have generated boundless enthusiasm, while unsuccessful ones have had the opposite effect. The story of Auburn University cannot be told without a chapter on intercollegiate athletics.
