2 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is very popular at Auburn and is an excellent way to meet new people. However, typically your group of friends will never extend beyond those in your own sorority. Also, dues are very expensive.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Safety – Campus is very well-lit at all hours. All around campus are special security buzzers than can used to alert police if you find yourself in an unsafe situation. However, there are very few security officers on patrol.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think I was .1 point on my GPA away from full tuition. 32 ACT with approx 3.4 HS GPA. From out of state. I got 2,500 a year and in state tuition.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Being at Auburn gives you a surreal feeling. Its just a great place to be, with great people.
Frat Life is gonna be sick, and the Co-Op program is excellent. Got me into a Full Time job @ $15.50 an hour just as a Freshman. Outstanding.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Ticket fairies will get you for anything at any time of the day. There wasn't enough parking for the Hill (where I lived Freshman year), so the parking lot would be full almost at all times. Only other parking is >1 mile away. C'mon Auburn...

Transportation: If you live on campus, you can walk to almost anywhere on campus within 15 minutes. If you live off campus, there is Tiger Transit which is the bus service paid for through the University. The transits go to almost all apartment complexes and run from morning till 6. They run every 15 minutes. There are also Tiger transits that run to the shopping centers (not as frequently). You can get a parking pass and drive to campus, just make sure you get there with time to find a spot. After 6pm, the Night shuttle runs around campus, and you just call it to pick you up. I still recommend having a car since it is more convenient at times.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Most of the bars are just off campus, so if you live close to campus you can walk. Most of the nights the bars are 21 and up, but Wednesday nights are 19+. I am not 21 yet, so i dont go to the bars. The fraternities always have parties, and the frat houses are just off campus. Auburn has a night security shuttle that you can call to pick you up at night if you are around campus. Apartment parties are a little smaller, and more personable groups, and cheaper than going to the bars. Just make sure you have a DD.

Academics: There are many core requirements which can take away time from core classes. The core classes cover a wide range of knowledge which is beneficial as an overall education, but not always needed for particular majors. Some core classes can be hard to get into because all students are required to take them. Since I am now in my major, Industrial Design, the classes are much smaller, and I know all my professors really well, and they are always excited to help with any problem. My major does not require much study time since it is more studio and project based, but there are many good study places on campus. Residence halls have study rooms, which I used often my freshman year.

Campus Housing: Expensive on Campus Living – When I lived on campus my freshmen year, it was pretty good. The university does a great job in pairing you up with a great roommate. We got a long well. What I didn't enjoy was the meal plan we all were forced to use. The overall on campus living was extremely expensive. It is a lot cheaper to live off campus, but overall, I would recommend any freshmen to live on campus their first year. It is a great way to meet new people/get to know the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Auburn library is a great place to go for group projects or studying alone. It is huge, so there is always a place for quietness if you need it. Also, there are a lot of computers to use. For group studying, white boards are available, and there is a lot of space. Also, coffee in the library is every college kid's dream.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: LOTS to Offer – There are LOTS of great restaurants within walking distance of the main campus that have decent prices and many even offer student discounts. No matter your preference, there is something nearby for everybody. I thought, as a vegetarian, I would have a hard time finding decent food but I could not have been more wrong. lots to offer!

4 College Junior

Computers: Whether you need to print or write a paper for class, Auburn offers great resources to do so. The library is conveniently located on campus and is open late, so resources are always available. In the library and student center there are several computer labs, so no matter what time you go there is usually a computer available so that you can get your work done.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Great Outdoors – Auburn has a lot to offer outdoors. There is Chewacla State Park just a few minutes from campus, offering great hiking trails and beautiful scenery. Also, there are a lot of safe running trails around in and around campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Blue and Orange – Auburn is really into sports, especially football. There is always a lot of school spirit and fan support to sports teams. There is not a day that i go to school without seeing at least a hundred people with some kind of auburn logo going across their shirt or pants leg.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Every Color of the Rainbow – At Auburn you have a choice of whatever flavor you like. There are various types of girls from sorority barbies to artsy punk. The guys range from fraternity hot shots to Dragon Ball Z fanatics.Its a small town school and everyone is generally friendly.

Academics: Always Available for Help – I came to Auburn University because it has an architecture program, the campus is great, and most of the professors I have had have been close to amazing. They are available to answer questions and give you extra help with course work. Class discussion is encouraged in smaller classes and makes it worth going to class.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Not Enough Help – In Engineering Physics, my professor could not answer my classmates' questions, and it was very frustration. Other than that, everyone is very willing to help if you ask.

Overall Experience: Overall College Experience – Auburn University is a true educational jewel. While it is known mostly for athletics (War Eagle!), it is consistently ranked nationally for its academics and is currently evolving to meet the growing needs of its students and professors. The social scene is perfect for a small town setting, and the people are generally nice. If I could start my college career over, I would definitely (12 times out of 10) choose Auburn.

Campus Strictness: Alcohol in Jordan-Hare Stadium – Auburn University is a dry campus. If you are caught in Jordan-Hare Stadium with alcohol, you will be ejected with the game (possibly arrested if you are publicly drunk) and you will lose your ticket privileges for the remainder of the season.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Professors Assisting Students – A majority of professors will gladly assist students, as long as they show genuine interest in the subject and are courteous and respectful.

1 College Senior

Parking: It's not hard to get a parking pass and they're $30 for a year. If you live in the dorms, there's a lottery to see who gets the closest spots and those that don't win the lottery get stuck in Resident Overflow which is on the edge of campus no where near the dorms. Off-campus students get C zone. Generally C-zone isn't too far from any building you need to be in but if you don't have an 8 am, you could be driving around for a while waiting for someone to leave so you can take their spot. There are Tiger Transits available that continuously run from every apartment to campus and that's normally what I take to class. If you park illegally, it's not a matter of IF you will get caught it's will you get a towed or just a ticket.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There are lots of different races, religions, and backgrounds at Auburn. It's neat because you get to see the different perspectives and learn about the different backgrounds of people. They also have specific clubs for particular religions and specific racial backgrounds.

4 College Senior

Academics: Teachers Want You to Succeed! I'm in the School of Nursing at Auburn. All the professors are really interested in helping you and really want you to succeed. All my professors know me by name and I have all my classes with the same people, which is good because our whole cohort is really close now. It's nice to such a close-knit group all going through the same things I am. At times the workload can get pretty intense but the teachers are really good about making sure you succeed. We also take HESIs periodically that prepare us for the NCLEX licensing exam.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Popular Not Necessarily Healthy – With the exception of Au Bon Pan, the only option is fast food. Sure, the variety is great, but fast food, besides being unhealthy, gets tiring quite quickly.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

View all previous student authors

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.
