4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene is definitely all about who you are around, but I have not witnessed any in my time at parties. Auburn has become basically a Tobacco free campus. The biggest drug used are depressants via Alcohol, but you get that everywhere.

Greek Life: Greek life influences apparel; Greek life is about 40% of Auburn population, but about 75% wears the same clothing, girls wear stupid nike shorts and giant t-shirts and guys where khaki shorts and poos or fishing shirts. Greek life people treat non-greek life students as lesser. The people in Greek organizations are known for partying and not much else, but fortunately you can function well and happily apart from Greeks.

Scholarships: Auburn gives out numerous really great scholarships for all students as long as youve kept your high school GPA up and did well on the ACT. If not, good luck.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Being an Animal Science major there are tons of opportunities to get hands on experience around campus.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs at Auburn are not a big deal at all. I have not been offered any drugs while I've been at Auburn and that goes for most of the students. There are people who use drugs but I would say that the majority of students at Auburn don't use drugs and aren't pressured to either.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: We have a great transportation system at Auburn. The tiger transit is very reliable and you know exactly when they will be there to pick you up. I haven't had any trouble with the transportation.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: During the day there is a free transit system that runs not only on campus, but also to apartment complexes and trailer parks that house Auburn students. In addition to the free transit, the Security Shuttle is another free transportation system that runs from 6 pm-7 am anywhere on Auburn Campus . The Shuttle is nicknamed the "Drunk Bus" because after a night downtown it's a safe, reliable way to make it home. Also running until 11 pm are certain transit lines that go to nearby Apartment complexes.

Local Atmosphere: Auburn is such a safe city to live in! The people are friendly and the atmosphere is amazing. Scenery is incredible and attracts tourists. Game days bring new, exciting people. It's a walking town where it's simpler and quicker to walk rather than drive. Lack of busy roads on campus adds to the beauty. The Garden of Memories in the Hill is a great place to see wildlife and take pictures.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Parking in Auburn is a huge ordeal. Most spaces require a pass to park and tow trucks are eagerly waiting for someone to break these laws. Towing is a daily problem. Parking passes are limited and outrageously priced.

Off-Campus Housing: Auburn offers plenty of choices in off-campus housing. Compared to the northeastern states, where I come from, the rates are really good. Parking in complexes close to campus is iffy- there isn't a lot of spaces and they require parking passes. Further away from campus is less strict about parking. Almost every apartment complex has a bus route near or on-site. The school just created this new off-campus housing search engine connected to the school's website that is really helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: They are a little old, and the keyboards may be somewhat dirty, but they work just fine. Most are available to all students at good times. The newer labs are nicer. Most are connected to printers, all are connected to the WiFi.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Summers are rather hot, but other than the tornados class is rarely cancelled, and even then not for long. The winters are cool, but rarely enough to cause snow or even frost. There are small storms, but nothing too bad.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students at Auburn are very diverse. There are people here from all over the world and from all walks of life. The only thing that they have in common is that they are overwhelmingly friendly. Here at Auburn we are known as the "Auburn Family" because of the fact that most people here connect with each other.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: School Spirit at Auburn is over the top. You can expect full attendance at most sporting events. Also, all events are free to students except for football.

Off-Campus Housing: The Veranda at Auburn is where I have lived this year. It is a great place to live, just 1/2 mile from campus with a bike lane all the way to campus. The Tiger Transit picks up in the parking lot for the short ride into campus. The amenities are great, with a pool, jacuzzi, fitness room, clubhouse, tennis, beach volleyball and basketball.

There are three bedrooms for rent for Fall 2013 in my unit and the rent is only $400 per month per bedroom. This includes utilities, wireless internet and cable! Please email me if you are a male seeking a place to live for the fall.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Auburn is a beautiful campus. Every professor genuinely cares about your well being.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The location to most all off campus housing is reasonable to the campus. Tiger Transit, which is ran by the university, goes to just about every place a student might live off campus making it a realistic option for everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Do not risk underage drinking if you are downtown and making a fool of yourself. The police will arrest you. Don't bring alcohol to any sporting events (minus tailgating.)

Computers: I have never had an issue with Auburn's computer labs or their printing service. Their Wi-fi does occasionally fade in and out, but It has been doing pretty good the past few months. There is always a tech in just about every major building that can assist you with printing, wifi problems, etc. There is also a licensed Apple Tech. that will fix your computer for free as part of your tuition-- Good if you have a Macbook but not so much for PCs.! Hope that helps!

Majors: I have interned for a design firm that was unpaid. It was however, very beneficial in regards to gaining a better understanding of day to day tasks. It taught me responsibility, determination, and how working from the bottom up will earn you more respect in the long run.

Weather: Really hot in the summer and fall. Luckily most of the apartment communities have pools. Gets pretty cold and windy in the winter, but rarely snows.

Majors: I was in the College of Human Sciences. My major was Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Middle Chidhood and Adolescence. I LOVED my major. My classes were interesting and applicable to life, and my internship was awesome. I actually got a job with my internship after graduation. I do know that people who chose other concentrations in HDFS, like Child-Life, found it difficult to get internships. Some of them had to change concentrations just so they could get an intership and graduate.

Diversity: AU has students from several different countries and many different races, but the overall minority percentage is only about 12% (I got this stat from the AU website). Most of the students are white and from the US. This is a large school, though, so no matter what race/ethnicity or religion, you can find others from a similar background if you want, or the student body as a whole is pretty accepting, so you can find friends from a completely different background.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus at night, and definitely safe during the day. There have only been a handful of incidences in the past few years where someone has been attacked on campus at night. If you are walking by yourself from the library to your car, you can ask the security guy to walk with you if you want. He stays by the door for that reason. There are also several emergency call boxes around campus if you feel that you are in danger. The walkways are also pretty well lit.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are several really great dining options in the area, whether you want pizza, BBQ, sandwiches, Asian, Mexican, or steak. There are several chains, but also a lot of local restaurants. If you are a member of the Student Alumni Association, several places offer discounts or free menu items when you show your card. There are also coupon books you can get at the beginning of each semester that include coupons for several restaurants, as well as other businesses around town. And if you don't have a coupon, there are still options friendly to every budget.

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.
