Drug Safety: Clean to the Eye – Compared to other schools, Auburn doesnt show its drug and alcohol consumption. Of course some students are doing these things but there not like top activities I guess you could say. Auburn is a clean and relatively safe place.

Off-Campus Dining: There Are a Good Bit – There are many different places to eat off campus and many are located very close to the schools. I havent had to many discounts from the food places. Cheeburger Cheeburger is a very good choice to go eat. They offer a wide variety for a decent cost, plus the food is really good.

Off-Campus Housing: Camebridge Off-Campus – It is absolutely terrible, needs no more explanation

Health & Safety: Safe Enough – There isnt a whole lot that could happen at Auburn with it being far from any major city. But i feel very safe when on campus and there are police officers and people everywhere, so it is unlikely that something would happen.

Local Atmosphere: Auburn is a very clean very involved hometown style town. There is always something to do whether it is going to the library, dog parks, football games, baseball games and other sporting events, playing golf, clubs on campus, or shopping.

Transportation: The vast majority of students bring a car, and it's highly recommended but totally doable without. I did not bring a car and everything on campus and many things off-campus (Downtown Auburn for example) are in walk distance. Don't want to walk? The Tiger Transit system is well-designed, fast, and very well maintained. There's a lot of different buses and destinations - you should have no problems getting anywhere you need to be on campus and some places off as well. In addition to that we have the security shuttles (known by the students as the "drunk bus"). There are a bunch of these white vans driving around campus to pick students up and take them where ever they need to go. It's pretty easy to just run into one but you can also call and get on sent straight to you to pick you up.

Greek Life: The Greek/Non-Greek divide is A LOT worse at other schools, don't get me wrong. And Auburn really does try it's best to keep the Frats from hurting people but... the system is what it is. Some pretty intense horror stories come out of the supposedly banned hazing in the Frats. The Sororities don't do anything like that (no hazing going on there) but they do put a lot of societal and mental pressure on the girls. You can pretty easily avoid all of it and I highly recommend that you do frankly.

Computers: For a while the AU WiFi was a bit of a running joke. It can be very slow sometimes - but there's excellent coverage on campus and for all the complaints I hear I've never had a single problem with it. Further, the problems that were occurring seem to be resolved. There are tons of computer labs available at any and all hours so you're all set there! I can't imagine a college at which you wouldn't need to bring a personal computer (most classes have at least some parts online and checking your TigerMail frequently is MANDATORY). However, there are plenty of computers on campus for your use. I brought my own printer but the CopyCat in the student center and elsewhere can help you print, fax, and generally do anything you want. The people there are very informed and helpful! It is a little pricey though, so bringing a printer or not is really a matter of personal choice.

Transportation: Tiger Transit – Tiger Transit is literally everywhere! Parking in a lot or riding from your apartment to the campus is easy with Tiger Transit Buses!

Academics: Mechanical Engineering – Auburn University is a top-notch school with Engineering degree plans. This University has more staff devoted to this major than any other major at the University, and the attentiveness of the staff and professors are second to none! Advisors make every effort to assign the curriculum to a student in the best interest of success in their subject areas. Additionally, the facility of Auburn offers unique internships designed to assist students in their "Engineering Success" and ease of transition to the working world following graduation.

Transportation: We have transit buses that travel students from off-campus to campus. This helps alot tremendously for students who do not cars or can't find parking.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer Labs – We have many computer labs around our campus with different types of computers to fit the students' preferability.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Cheap and Convenient – Off campus dining is very popular among Auburn students. We don't have to travel far in order to find great places to eat, which also offer nice food at a low cost.

Academics: I came to Auburn Univeristy to study pre-pharmacy in hopes to be a pharmacist. Auburn offers not only a great pharmacy program, but is known for its strong engineering and architecture progams. Auburn is known for having great academic courses and wonderful education programs.

Diversity: A Little Meh – its not that racism and prejudice run rampant its just a predominantly white campus

Scholarships: Apply Early – you get your application in early and have good grades/test scores you can get pretty good scholarships. However if you are just an average student it is somewhat difficult to find money

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Close and Convient – Everything is right outside your door. You dont have to worry about taking the transit or driving and searching for a parking spot. Also, all the dining places on campus are right near all the dorms. The rooms closer to the heart of campus are smaller, but you are able to wake up 10 minutes before class and still get there in time.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Friendly&Football Rules – Everyone in Auburn is welcoming and very helpful. Also, nothing beats Auburn during footbal season. Everyone comes together for tailgating, eating, and cheering the AU tigers on.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's the South – The temperature from August until about November is hot and humid and it starts to become that way again near March. The "winter"months do not get very cold. It does rain a lot in January and February, but for the most part it is sunny and warm most of the school year, so classes rarely ever get cancelled. Bad weather never seems to hit Auburn, just the occasional storm.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: From what I have seen on campus and off, we are very diverse as a community. No matter what race/ethnicity, the community will accept anybody. The community will not discriminate on your background, race, gender, beliefs, etc. Auburn as a whole, will accept anyone and everyone, and that is one reason why I love Auburn University

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.
