5 College Junior

Academics: Wide variety of courses offered and passionate professors

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have never really seen a lot of drug usage at Auburn. The exception being a couple of guys using ADHD medication around finals week to help them stay awake. Alcohol is definitely more prevalent, especially football game days. A lot of students drink openly on those weekends.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Teachers and faculty are pretty lenient when it comes to almost all aspects of campus life. I don't live on campus, so I really can't comment on dorm life, but being on campus in general, I have never had any problems. As for academically, the teachers sound really strict at the beginning of the semester in their syllabus, but they are never as strict as they sound. I think a lot of this has to do with the students. I've never seen students really act out or cause a lot of problems, so there's no need for stringency.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus can definitely be challenging. A permit runs about $60, but most of the time you have to park so far away that you have to ride a bus from the lot to campus. This usually isn't a big deal because the bus ride is fairly short, but when you are running late, that extra time can be costly. With that being said, I live off campus and there is transit that goes by my area, making it really easy to get to school without driving there.

Academics: I'm not as up-to-date about the main campus academics at Auburn University, but from what I've heard, it's a really great institution. At the College of Veterinary Medicine, the academics are amazing. At the end of next year, the CVM will be the most technologically advanced CVM in the nation. In 2007, we got a brand new large animal hospital; in 2011, we got updated classrooms that allow us to get absorb all the information we possibly can; and by the end of 2014, we will have a brand new small animal hospital. My clinical years will be amazing, just as my first year was.

Diversity: It's the south. There's not much more to say. I have a class of 120 and all but 5 are white/caucasian. 94 are women and 26 are men.

Off-Campus Housing: In Auburn, it's a big thing to live in a mobile home rather than an apartment or house. I love it! Buying a trailer increases my credit, while allowing me to sell it when I graduate to another student and get the majority of my money back. It allows me the freedom of living alone and growing up. My parents weren't so sure about allowing me to buy a trailer in the beginning, especially after living in Tuscaloosa during the tornado of 2011 and having my house shredded around me. The vet school provides a safe haven for anyone and their pets if inclement weather comes our way. Overall, I've definitely become far more mature as a young home owner, and I definitely recommend it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a pretty good selection for students on a budget, though Tuscaloosa, where I got my undergraduate degree, has a better selection. I guess I was spoiled there.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Auburn University has a great student health center that I've been to a couple times. There's barely a waiting time, and I absolutely love my doctor there.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Personally I have not been around a large drug scene on Auburn's campus. The only drugs I have seen taking place, other than drinking, is weed. But, I also do not surround myself with people who do drugs, so that definitely alters my view point. Alcohol though, is very visible. Underage kids do not generally try to hide it either. Bars are known for knowingly letting underage students in, as long as their ID is real.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a part of Greek Life at Auburn, and I love it! We are so involved on campus, in our surrounding community, and with each other. It is also an awesome way to find leadership positions and make connections with alumni. I do not think that we personally discriminate non-greeks, but it is divided. Usually greeks hang out with each other, and visa versa.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am an education major. Fortunately, senior year Auburn sets us up with a year long internship. There's no pay, and the hours are of a regular school day. I actually can't wait to start mine, seeing as it is what I want to pursue after college!

3 College Junior

Majors: I am an early childhood major. Overall I am happy with my program. We have required classes in order to initially apply for the program, and then to get into the internship. My career goal is to eventually become a speech therapist after graduates school. My only concern would of course be finding a job. But, I feel that with both of my options, I should be able to find something sustainable.

Campus Housing: The cheapest leaving options on Campus "The Hill" is the worst it has been there for years! and needs a lot or re-vamping. The parking lots are covered with giant pot holes and it is a hassle to find parking. There are these old big back TV's in most of the dorms that student's can't use because auburn has upgraded to an HDTV system, but failed to upgrade the TV's. There is a broken foosball table in some of the dorms or nothing at all. Not really the place to hang out. Then there is "The QUAD" which is also ancient. Then The Village (for the athletes, scholarship students, rich kids, and sorority girls) and the new South Donahue dorms.

Campus Strictness: Auburn isn't very strict except for the police force; they go hard on parking tickets and speeding.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on Auburn's campus, but there are stories of people being hurt. We have well lit paths and walkways and help/call buttons everywhere.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports at Auburn University are fun to go to and cheer on our team, but our sports are like a roller coaster. Some years we are really good and other years we are really bad. Our swim team is easily our best sport and consistently ranked nationally, so they're amazing. We have great support though and love supporting as the Auburn family.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Auburn cares so much about its students that I constantly feel safe whenever I am on campus. I see security all the time, on a frequent basis, checking to make sure doors are locked and surrounding areas are safe. They deserve a "thank you" whenever seen, because they spend so much time ensuring our safety...it really is one of those things that can be overlooked, but is SO important.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: Campus strictness isn't a primary issue at Auburn. They are strict about the typical reasons - honor code, alcohol, drugs, etc.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of everything you would ever crave or need!

4 College Senior

Majors: I am in the engineering program at Auburn. I transferred from another school and it was fairly easy. My GPA had to qualify to enter the engineering program.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Auburn is a great place to attend college. There is so much to do which includes hiking, fishing, swimming and dining. There are a lot of restaurants to chose from.

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.
