The Glomerata is Auburn University's Official Yearbook. Preserving Auburn's memories since 1897, the Glom is one of the largest and most sought after collegiate publications in the Southeast. The 404-page, all-color book is distributed for free each April to Auburn University students. The book highlights every aspect of student life at Auburn University including campus life, athletics, academics, organizations, greeks and people. This long-standing tradition at Auburn sets us apart from many other yearbooks in the country. The Glom has served Auburn's students for over 120 years, and we plan to continue our legacy as a cherished collection of our college days for many years to come.
In the fall semester, the Glom accepts applications on AUinvolve for staff membership which includes writers, designers and photographers who are interested in helping to construct the yearbook or maintain our growing digital platforms. Membership is open to any Auburn University student. Students interested in applying for general staff do not need to have previous experience with yearbooks, only a desire to learn and preserve Auburn's memories.
With over 25,000 students and 500 organizations, it is nearly impossible to ensure every student gets into the yearbook. Each year, the editorial staff creates a ladder and tries to embody everything that happens on campus in roughly 400-pages, but there will always be events or groups we do not have the space to cover. There are several ways, though, that you or your organization can ensure that you will be featured in the yearbook.
Glomerata Photo Days are hosted on campus throughout the fall semester for students to take pictures individually or with a group to be published.
Organizations and Greek Life can purchase space in the book for representation. In addition, organizations can reach out to Editor In Chief, Morgan Key, via email to request coverage of an event by one of our photographers. Coverage is subject to availability.
At the beginning of the academic year, contracts for organizations and Greek life that would like to purchase space in the yearbook are released on AUinvolve. It is important that participating organizations complete the contract and turn in all required items (photos, captions, write-up, and payment) at the time the contracts are due. Completing a contract is the only way to ensure your organization or college is featured in the book.
Do you know a student, faculty or staff member that should be remembered on Auburn's campus? Our staff is always looking to feature individuals or groups who exemplify Auburn. People feature submissions are accepted in early fall and will be posted to our Instagram page (@auglomerata) and AUInvolve
Every April, our staff sets up multiple locations across campus and distributes 8,000 books to students for free. All you need to pick up your copy is your Mobile Event Pass or Auburn email. All copies are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are unable to pick up a copy, a friend may do so with one of the previous forms of identification mentioned.
Edition 126 has already been passed out for the 2023-2024 school year. Books cannot be printed by request. Once supplies are out, they are gone.
We have a digital book loaded onto this website under the tab Digital Book for the last 2 editions. We are in the process of adding more. Auburn Libraries Digital Collections has every Glom up to 2003 available to view as well.
