Auburn University was established in 1856 as the East Alabama Male College, 20 years after the city of Auburn's founding. In 1960 the name of the school was changed to Auburn University, a title more in keeping with its location, and expressing the varied academic programs and larger curriculum of a major university. Today, Auburn is one of the few universities to carry the torch as a land, sea and space grant university. Their Fall 2010 semester enrollment was 25,078.
