Athletics: Since varsity sports are so big at Auburn, a good way to meet people is to get involved with a sport. You don't necessarily have to play a sport to support it, however. Whether you decide to play in the band, be a cheerleader or dance team member, or just sit in the student section at every game, I guarantee it will be a great experience.

Niche User

Transportation: Auburn has public transportation on campus, and it runs well. They also keep it running at night for students. The town isn't big enough for public transportation.

Niche User

Transportation: Public transportation is called the Tiger Transit. It's paid for by your tuition. They pick students up all over campus and some off-campus apartments almost every 15 minutes. After 6 p.m. until 2 a.m., they take you wherever you need on a calling basis.

Niche User

Transportation: Public transportation is basically your car and your friends' cars.

Niche User

Transportation: It's pretty convenient, but most people have cars.

Niche User

Transportation: The transit system on campus is getting better. It's fairly reliable; a bus comes to pick you up about every 10 to 15 minutes. The routes tend to not be that long, either. They all drop you off at the Haley Center, unless you ask to be dropped off somewhere before there.

Niche User

Transportation: If you mean like taking the bus out to do something at night, sorry, there isn't anything like that. I just take my car. But, if you mean to class and around campus, then it's great. Tiger Transit runs all day and will take you to and from campus, as well as to the mall and to Wal-Mart. It's really a convenient way to get around.

Niche User

Transportation: Public transportation is really good. They have buses running all the time, and if you need a bus to pick you up late at night, then there's a number you can call and they'll come get you whenever you need them.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of places on the edge of campus in `downtown.' Some great places there are Mellow Mushroom (pizza), Amsterdam's (very nice), and lots of other various restaurants.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the people I know eat off campus (off campus is like a block). There is a great pizza place one block off campus called Mellow Mushroom. There is also a bagel shop that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It turns into a bar at night, and it is a fun place to hang out and study. There are too many to name, but you will always have somewhere and something to eat!

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: Everyone I know eats at Barbecue House on College Street. Very good lunch, even better breakfast, and not too hard on the wallet. Stay away from the Chinese places close to campus-bad reputations and the food isn't great.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: Momma Goldberg's Deli is really good. I eat there like five times a week.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: There's the usual Chili's and Ruby Tuesday's kind of places, but if you want to try some local restaurants, I'd recommend Momma Goldberg's, Niffer's, and the Terra Cotta Café.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: There are more than enough eateries available. Some of the places I enjoy to eat at are Mellow Mushroom (pizza parlor), the Brick Oven (pizza parlor), Quizno's subs, Laredo's (Mexican), and, of course, you have all of your normal fast food places.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: There is anything you could want from a deli (McAlister's) to pizza (Mellow Mushroom) to trendy restaurants (Amsterdam's Café) to soul food (Tine's Country Cottage) to bars (Bodega's, War Eagle Supper Club, Olde Auburn Ale House). I love to eat so I could go on and on. There is great food all around.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants are pretty good. Mostly pizza places and wings. The Mellow Mushroom is the best pizza place in town. Auburn City Limits is the best restaurant in Auburn, but it's pretty pricey.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: Look for those who take TigerCard because if your parents pay for that, then they'll receive the bill. Some places that accept TigerCard are Domino's pizza, Cold Stone ice cream shop, the Auburn mall, Toomer's, and many more.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: Auburn has a unique variety of restaurants off campus and, since downtown is so close, they aren't hard to get to. The only problem is that the same types of places seem to be going up. I love eating pizza and sandwiches and all that, but I wish we had some really good ethnic food restaurants. There are no decent Chinese or Mexican restaurants here. For a college town, you would think that you would find at least something a little authentic instead of greasy noodles or burritos.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I think choosing to come to Auburn was the best decision I ever made and wouldn't trade it for anything. I love it here and don't plan on leaving anytime soon.

Niche User

Overall Experience: The only reason that I have ever wished that I went anywhere else is because my best friends go to other schools. If you do come to school here, then get involved in something. That's the only way you're gonna meet other people.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I didn't want to come here at first because I wanted to stay at home, but my mom kind of pushed me out anyway, and I'm so glad. I would never go anywhere else.

Overall Experience: My overall experience here has been great. No problems at all. The one thing you'll notice if you come here is how friendly everyone on campus is. That friendliness goes with you everywhere. You can be walking down the street, in some place far away from Auburn, see a fan or alumni, and exchange a hearty War Eagle (the typical Auburn greeting). The campus is big enough for a large university experience, but small enough that you don't get overwhelmed.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I could have gotten a full scholarship if I stayed in Georgia, but I came to Auburn University because I love it. They have an architecture program, the campus is great, the people are friendly, and it's just an overall great place in my opinion (not to sound cheesy).

Niche User

Overall Experience: I think it is the best school to go to! My overall experience has been amazing. When I graduate, I am going to miss all my friends, all the fun we had, and everything in between. I would never have wanted to go anywhere else!

Niche User

Overall Experience: I've only had good experiences at Auburn.

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.
