By Alan Plastin

Are you tired of plain bank checks? Are you looking for a new way to support your favorite college foot ball team, the Tigers, or your favorite university? If so, then you should think about purchasing Auburn University bank checks.

A public university in Auburn, Alabama, Auburn University contains one of the most popular college sports' teams. On February 1, 1856 it was chartered and in 1892 it went on to become the first four-year coeducational school in Alabama. It's name was officially changed to Auburn University in 1960 and it is widely referred to as "Auburn." It also holds the distinction as being one of the few American universities that is a land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant research center.

During the Civil War, the college was closed because most of the students and faculty left to enlist in the army. The campus itself was used as a training ground for the Confederate Army, and the "Old Main" building was used as a hospital for Confederate wounded. A cannon lathe used for the manufacture of cannons for the Confederate Army and recovered from Selma, Alabama, was presented to Auburn in 1952 by brothers of Delta Chapter of the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity. Today, it sits on the lawn next to Samford Hall.

Until 1964, Auburn was racially segregated like most schools in the south, with only white students being admitted to the college. However, the integration went well and the first African-American student was admitted in 1964.

At present time, Auburn has over 23,000 students and a faculty of almost 1,200 just located at the main campus in Auburn. The Auburn University Montgomery satellite campus has over 6,000 students as well.

As far as sports go, Auburn is one of the charter members of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). Their teams are called the Tigers, and they compete in Division I-A of the NCAA and in the Western Division of the SEC. Auburn regularly wins competitions in swimming and diving, football, women's basketball, baseball and women's golf. The official colors of burnt orange and navy blue were chosen by Dr. George Petrie, Auburn's first football coach.

The football team is coached by Gene Chizik. In 1957, Auburn was coached by "Shug" Jordan to a 10-0 record was awarded the AP National Championship. The teams were also recognized in 1913, 1914, 1958, 1983, 1993, and 2004. The Heisman Trophy was won by Pat Sullivan in 1971 and Bo Jackson in 1985. The Trophy's namesake, John Heisman, coached at Auburn from 1895 until 1899. The Jordan-Hare Stadium is where the football team calls home. It can seat 87,451 people, making it the 9th-largest on-campus stadium in the NCAA.
