Weird University Fact: Toomer's Corner, which marks the beginning of the Auburn Campus at the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and College St. is the most iconic symbol in Auburn. After nearly every Auburn win, fans flock to Toomer's Corner to `roll Toomer's' in which they toilet paper the oak trees on the corner. The corner is named for Toomer's Drugstore, which still stands on the corner. Of course, the lives of the Oak trees are in danger after an Alabama fan attempted to fatally poison the trees. Despite losing most of their leaves, the trees are still alive today.
