Typical Look at Auburn’s Student Bodies” was the first to actually diagram the his ‘n’ her style of Auburn Student Spirit(s).
Shaker? He hardly knows her…

I love all the open references to alcohol; “A lady’s drink” “daiquiris, anyone?” “Portable bar and cooler” and “For the real beer lover”… Seems they were a bit more in touch with the students then, than they are now… Oh, and the “For your MRS degree”… Priceless…
The 1983 Auburn Woman (still?) drank(s) Canadian Mist? I’d like to shake her hand.
sony walkman 1983…what will the ipod be in 30 years? Implantable wifi brain chip? Could barely make out that cabbage patch kid. Reminds me of the boy knockoff garbage pail kids. Those were some hot trading cards in elementary school!
I don’t think I looked exactly like that guy in 1983, but I was damn close – right down to the orange and blue umbrella.
