5 College Freshman

Academics: Everyone takes core classes their freshman and possibly sophomore year so you don't start your major-intensive classes until then which gives you plenty of time to realize what you want to major in. This is a great way to do it because if you DO decide to change majors, for the most part you don't fall behind because you're just getting required core classes out of the way that are required by every major.

Academics: Registration is SUPER easy and there's so many subjects to choose from. As a freshman it may be a little harder to get the class times you want but that's because you're the last to register. I would recommend being in a learning community your freshman year because you get pre-registered for the core classes everyone will be fighting for and you get priority registration for the spring semester.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: As a freshman you're automatically entered for a freshman scholarship strictly based on your GPA and SAT/ACT scores and I would say over 60-70% of students are on scholarship just based on these. You can also apply for department scholarships but they're slightly harder to get as an incoming freshman, but once you've completed a semester here they're pretty easy to get as long as you have the grades.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There's tons of "blue light" poles where you just have to press a button and a police officer will be there within 30 seconds. The police are always around but not overbearing at all. You feel safe without feeling like someone's always watching you.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The first week or 2 was hard not knowing anyone (because I'm an out of state student) but I met people EXTREMELY quickly through my classes, club involvement and in all of my classes. People are so friendly and welcoming here its amazing. I would DEFINITELY recommend staying on campus your first year even though it's not required because it's a great way to meet people!

Transportation: The on-campus shuttles are all free and there's also a shuttle that takes you to Walmart on Fridays so you really dont NEED a car on campus unless you plan to live off-campus or go out a lot.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I love EVERYTHING about this campus. You can literally walk anywhere on campus in probably 10 minutes tops so you definitely do NOT need a car but a bike is recommended. We just opened up a new rec center on campus where people can go work out and it's free for students to use. Dining is great on campus there's a lot of different dining venues but some things can get kind of expensive so just be careful! Other than that there's so much to get involved in here and game days on campus can't even be described they're so amazing.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: We just built a new rec center for students to work out at and athletes get their own private work out facility. The library is great with a TON of resources to help you succeed in school. Besides that, just being on the Auburn campus is something that needs to be experienced during game day. We fly an eagle in the stadium before every game and there's so many more traditions that you can't help but feel like you're part of something special!

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi is pretty slow sometimes and labs get crowded towards the end of the semester when people have stuff they have to get done.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's so many places to go out and eat and for the most part all of the places are less expensive than campus food. Naturally there's a ton of pizza places but there's healthy options too.

2 College Freshman

Parking: It's very hard to get a parking pass in the zone closest to your dorm until you're an upperclassmen. But being at a school of 25,000+ kids that's to be expected.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports are huge. The Auburn Family rallies behind almost every single sport on campus, with an emphasis on the football team. We support our athletes and Auburn does a great job of getting everyone involved.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: In my opinion it is very over-priced. There are many options, but not many healthy options. I always seem to run out of my tiger dollars, even though I do not eat that often or that much.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center, or University Medical Clinic, is not a part of the university and therefore cannot be linked to your student bill, which is inconvenient. However, the pharmacy is connected, which is convenient. There are many safety things though. I feel very safe on campus with the security shuttle.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Auburn is not a very diverse school. Yes there are students from other countries and different backgrounds, but there is a clear majority and many of the students fall into the same categories regarding political affiliation, sexual orientation and religious beliefs.

Computers: There are always computer labs open and people you can call to help if you are having troubles with the internet or with computer software. Printing on campus is often expensive, so it is much more reasonable to buy your own printer. There are computer labs available and they are always open for students, but it is very helpful to have your own laptop. Many professors expect that students have their own laptop.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our brand new recreation center is amazing. The student center is always bustling with everyone going about their day to day activities.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: We just opened a brand new recreation center that is excellent. We have many programs to help students who are struggling in class. There are opportunities to go abroad, start your own organization, find employment and much more. The library is always open and people are there to help you with research.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a business major. Our office of professional career development is awesome. They are always holding seminars on how to present yourself, find internships and find jobs. The program is very straightforward and the work load is not impossible. It pushes you, but that is what college is for.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most of the professors are more than willing to work with you to help you succeed. The programs differ from college to college. I would say that engineers and students in the college of science and mathematics are often very busy, while students in other programs have to work really hard, but are not nearly as stressed out. The registration process is helpful because it opens for people who have more credits first, making sure they can take the classes they need to before they graduate. People also need to meet with their advisors before they can register.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: As long as you find the right place for your needs, it is great.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I think the university is not that aware of what goes on, or they try to turn a blind eye to drugs. However, there are many alcohol awareness and help programs.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It is typically warm and even in the winter it is above 30 degrees.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: 2 Chick-fil-as about 500 yards from each other. It only gets worse.

Greek Life: GDI here, but the Greek system here is all smoke and mirrors.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, students are very happy to be in Auburn. They love the people around them and the experiences that they get to have.

College is what you make of it. If you sit at home and don't do anything, then you won't enjoy yourself no matter where you go. With all the options you have offered to you at Auburn, you have to try to not have a good time. And with a student body that is so happy to be here, it's also hard not to get swept up in the excitement. As always, it's a good idea to visit a college or university before making a final decision. Make sure you're as happy and comfortable as you can possibly be.
