Foy Union. How may I help you?

How freaking cool!

My fellow AU Alumni will understand how cool this is. Our latest alumni newsletter says that the NBC today show talked about five numbers you REALLY need to know about. One was Foy Union's answer line.

Foy Union was our student union building, and they had a help line where you could call for questions about the campus - and anything else. No, really. ANYTHING else. We used to play a game called 'Stump Foy Union' and try to come up with questions they couldn't answer.

Of course, now Auburn students won't be able to get into the line because everybody in freaking CREATION will be using the line to get questions answered. Grrr.

I don't remember the area code, but I still remember the number the way we learned it - Eight-Foy-Foy, Foy-Two-Foy-Foy. :)

Pretty cool.

I had a friend that actually worked the line as an undergrad. She said it was the most fun job she'd ever had, at least until the phone call about Bear Bryant.

You should call and ask how many Oreos it takes to line the Concourse. You can also verify really basic alumni information, like "Did Bob Smith graduate from Auburn?" and when.

Yeah, I just want to call with my stumper. I had two friends while there, and I can't remember their last names. First names were Kirk and Zeke and they roomed together the entire time they were there. Kirk worked delivering pizza. Zeke worked for a while with me at The Flush.

What were their last names so I can find out what they are up to now?

Goodness. I just made myself think of working at the Flush. That was certainly an experience, and it taught me SO MUCH about food service:

- Don't piss off the staff
- The best way to break up candy bars for mix-ins is by repeatedly throwing them across the room
- Fried ham and cheese sandwiches are the best
- When a co-worker has a SO visiting and you hear him scream from the back room DON'T ASK QUESTIONS! You don't want to know. Really. (He screamed because they were fooling around, he had a hard on, and she grabbed one of the ice cream containers and shoved his penis into it)

That's so cool! Foy Union & Auburn getting national tv recognition...and it has nothing to do with whether or not Tubs will be our coach next year! ;)

Can't remember the number, either, btw....

I'd heard about that, but hadn't seen the video yet. Thanks for posting that. So cool :)

I remember the night we called them & asked them how to take a bong hit. They walked us through it step by step. Ahhh, the good old days. LMAO!
