3 College Freshman

Weather: Depending on the weather it can be very troublesome to deal with. The rain is the worse because the campus usually floods pretty well in a lot of areas.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The Financial Aid process was very smooth and there wasn't a problem whatsoever with the people working there. I received all information very promptly.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police and student health care center are usually good at their duties but can be very unresponsive and somewhat troublesome.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Our Med Clinic isn't necessarily the best, it just depends on what you're going for. The Women's Health Center on the second floor is great though! I honestly feel super safe walking on campus. There have been very few times I've walked across campus late at night and felt unsafe. And usually it was just my overactive imagination getting to me.

4 College Senior

Majors: Getting into my psychology major was easy. Getting into my thearte major wasn't necessarily difficult, but since I came in late, it's been an ongoing process.

Majors: I really like how involved I get to be in my major! The students really do so much of the work and gain such good experience!

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Housing really depends on which area you live in and who your RAs are. The Quad is really excellent for closeness to central campus but sucks for parking. The Hill has better parking but the buildings aren't as nice as some of the others. The Village is super fall from everything but has more room. South Donahue is really expense and really far from things but has laundry built in for free so that's an excellent convenience!

Transportation: Tiger Transit can get behind some days. And during heavy traffic times, it's difficult to get around town.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a ton of it. If you want to live off campus, there are plenty of options to fit your needs!

4 College Senior

Academics: I started out as a Psychology major but never really felt at home there. I got involved with the theatre department and fell in love and have been super involved since and I've also added on a theatre major. The advisors really work with you to make sure your academics are on track!

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: I think our biggest problem is weed. Being an RA, I've had some experience in dealing with residents and weed but it's still pretty tame compared to a lot of schools.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid for last year and I found out within a couple of days! When I ad to go to talk to someone in Mary Martin Hall about accept more money, they were very willing to help!

4 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics is an extremely huge part of the Auburn community.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Auburn is a small town but there's charm to it that's hard to resist! It's a big family!

Diversity: A bunch of rich, white, conservatives.... Not very diverse at all. Most of the students don't even seem to promote diversity. Not only are most people the same race, they also all dress the same..... Which is find weird. So yeah.... Diversity...... No.

Academics: US News has Auburn ranked as a top 100 university. This makes sense, as the school has one of the lowest average GPA's of any university in the nation. The reason for this, the rigor or the course work. Teachers make classes pretty difficult, and unlike what I hear at most schools, these teachers seem reluctant to curve grades. What you get is what you get.

Nightlife: Nightlife at Auburn....... I mean..... There's sometimes stuff to do..... I would have expected a lot more from a big SEC school. The downtown is rather small and most parties revolve around frats, which honestly usually aren't that fun.

Off-Campus Housing: Sooooooo many incredible off campus housing options, and at really good prices. Being from the north, the cost of apartment living doesn't even compare. There are plenty of options for what you want. I lived off campus my freshman year and the apartment complex set me up with 3 random based on common interests, and it has been great.

Transportation: I love the transit system, it is very convenient and drops students off at multiple spots on campus. Whether you are already on campus and want a ride to the other side, or you want to take the transit from your apartment to campus, it is easy to find a shuttle to do so.

Scholarships: I was just out of reach from gaining a scholarship, but I did receieve some financial aid. I was suprised that given my situation I did not receieve more aid. Auburn seems a bit reluctant to give out financial aid.

Drug Safety: As compared to other colleges I have been to, drugs are not very prevelant at Auburn. Some students smoked marijuana and occasionally you may find some who partake in using cocaine, but for the most part, drugs aren't a huge problem. Alcohol, on the other hand.... Well..... It is an SEC school after all.

Greek Life: Greek life is incredible.... If you're apart of it. It truly runs much of the social life at Auburn. Sororities flock to the concourse, where they promote their activities and what not. Everyone I know who is apart of Greek life loves it, but that's expected. In a way Greeks sort of alienate themselves from anyone outside of their fraternities or sororities. If you're a rich, white, conservative the chances are you will fit in very well with Greek life, and if not..... Auburn might not be the school for you.

Weather: Spring comes early and fall stays late here, which is very nice. It will rarely snow in winter, and when it does, expect a fewdays off. Being in Alabama, there is a lot of precipitation, but it usually comes in downpours, which means there are plenty of beautiful, sunny days throughout the year.

Computers: Auburn offers plenty of computers, though everyone has their own laptop. Not everyone has a printer though, and there are plenty of accessable printers available in the library. There are even computer labs and printers in some of the apartment complexes which come in handy sometimes. The only complaint I would have is about the atrocious WiFi. Keeping a connection around campus is tough, I would expect everyone at Auburn has felt victimized by the terrible connection.

Local Atmosphere: Auburn is a quaint, quiet town. Which is nice if you like that. As a lively college student I find it extremely boring. The shopping options are minimal, and I guess the only good part about Auburn is the fact that it's less than two hours from Atlanta.

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.
