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.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Auburn Football, thats pretty much it.

1 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: One tiny mall in town supplemented by two Wal-Marts, a Target and various grocery stores do not make for a lot of options. The small town tries to hold events, but the parks are too small and the events too poorly executed that its not even worth trying anymore.

Diversity: As an ethnic person, pretty much every social advantage at Auburn is unavailable. A lot of women don't want to date you (can't take you home to daddy) and guys would rather have white friends. This results in groups being formed of the ethnic/non-Southern WASP people which divides the campus. However, with a 70% caucasian population, doesn't matter too much.

3 College Senior

Majors: It sort of reminds me of high school, there are many cliques. The reason is that various people have connections to get old/current (the actual one we are taking) tests, former students' lab reports/homework assignments, and other materials but don't want to increase competition to break the curve. Due to this cutthroat environment, its difficult to make real friends or truly learn the material.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: depends who you are. there are a lot of racists and its hard to be a minority. but if you’re a white republican you’ll have the time of your life

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: certain groups of people are weird while others are extremely preppy and snobby. it just depends who you associate with but the majority of people are good looking and southern.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: even if you aren’t sick they’ll prompt you to act like you are so they can give you a doctors note for missing class.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: theres not very much off campus dining. jimmy johns, dominos, chick fil a…the usual

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: if you don’t go out at least 2 or 3 nights a week you’re doing it wrong.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

View all previous student authors

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.
