The Greater Houston Auburn Club is an officially chartered group of Auburn University Alumni and Friends located in the greater Houston Metro Area. Our mission is to serve and support Auburn University and foster the Auburn Spirit through Club Projects. Our primary Club Project is to provide an Auburn Scholarship to a deserving student from our community. We also sponsor Club Activities that give Auburn Alumni and Friends an opportunity to get together, have a good time and cheer on the Tigers! We are always looking for new members to join our growing list of Auburn supporters. Please browse our site and visit the Contact Page for more information on getting involved! WAR EAGLE!
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)
