  Samford Hall in spring
by melissa_bel

Auburn University has a lovely campus, as many US university have. Located in a nice green area, surrounded by trees and bushes of azaleas, it's a real pleasure to take a stroll on a spring afternoon.
East Alabama Male College on May 6, 1856, under the guidance of the Methodist Church., Auburn is now the largest university in Alabama with about 22.000 students enrolled.
The most recognizable of its building is Samford Hall, where the university administration is located.
Built in 1888-90 and renovated in 1971, the building is a successor to the first "Old Main" that occupied the site. The original building, which was the first at the old East Alabama Male College, burned in 1887. Samford Hall is named for William James Samford, Alabama's 31st governor, who was from Lee County and was a student at the East Alabama Male College before the Civil War.
