The Circle of Excellence is a family of alumni and friends whose unrestricted annual gifts enable the college of Architecture, Design and Construction to address immediate priorities and important investments.Circle members heighten the reputation of our college's programs and advance our college's academic prestige by serving as a valuable source of strategic support. Your Circle of Excellence donation provides: opportunity scholarships for high-achieving incoming freshmen, branding initiatives that elevate our national and international profile, and career resources for CADC students and alumni. Circle of Excellence members are recognized and invited to events, tailgates, and an annual reception. Members' names are displayed on the dean's conference room window in Dudley Commons and featured on the CADC Website.Members with five, 10, and 15 years of consecutive giving are recognized at the CADC awards banquet each fall and receive an exclusive commemorative keepsake with the Circle of Excellence insignia.

With the establishment of a curriculum in 1907, Auburn was one of the first universities to offer a degree in architecture. To honor CADC's rich history and vast, impressive accomplishments, members of the 1907 Circle, the highest level of annual giving, provide gifts totaling $3,000 or more each year.
