College Freshman

Transportation: Tiger Transit is pretty convenient and drops you right in front of the Haley Center, which is where most classes are. The Drunk Bus is also a really nice feature, and it runs every night.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe. There is a blue-light system like there is at most campuses now. I feel safe walking around at night.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Village is going to be sick. The Quad and Hill dorms are a more generic dorm experience.

College Freshman

Nightlife: Parties on and around campus are mostly frats-they're decent. There are five bars in town, which makes for a pretty dead scene for a school of more than 24,000.

College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food on campus is good. We don't have a dining hall like most colleges, but we have a lot of places that would be found off campus, which makes it convenient. Places include but are not limited to Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, Au Bon Pain, and Einstein Bros. Bagels.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Auburn is definitely present, but it doesn't make or break your college life. A student can have just as good of an experience not in a sorority or fraternity as they could in one.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Anywhere on Glenn or Magnolia will be awesome. Search early and don't hesitate to settle the lease, or you won't get a spot. Overall though, the off-campus option is great regardless of how old you are.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is definitely worth it. In some cases, it's even cheaper. I recommend trying to get off-campus housing at least after your second year.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: I lived in an apartment right across the street from campus and it was wonderful. I walked everywhere. Even to the farthest place on campus, it's not more than a 15-minute walk, and it was easier than trying to drive and find a parking place. Most of the student parking is just as far as one of those apartments.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is great. I've never lived in a dorm. There are several apartments that are within a block from campus. If you are in business, then you can get some right across the street.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: While off-campus living is great, you need to do your research before you choose somewhere to live. Sometimes it's hard to find a place close enough to campus that isn't trashy or very expensive. If you start your search early, then you'll find a great place with no problem.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Since dorms are so hard to get into (huge waiting list), most students choose off-campus housing. The apartment complexes around here are very close to campus (took me five minutes to walk to class) and there's also a transit system that runs from every complex not located next to campus.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: If you live off campus, then you can still get a parking pass and drive to classes. We also have Tiger Transit that goes to most of the local apartments and takes you to campus. I live way off campus right now (like three miles away) and it's still really easy. I say way off because there are a lot of places off campus where you can still walk to class.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: The wide majority of apartments are within five minutes of campus. Most of them are within a few blocks. Some, like College Park 1 and 2, Sterling, and the Edge, are a mile or two away from campus, but the Tiger Transit runs out there all the time so you can get to class easily.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: There are all kinds of apartments and townhouses for rent close to campus, as well as several trailer parks, which are the most entertaining places to stay. My trailer is about five minutes off campus, and I have no problem getting to class on time or anything. Finding a place is not a problem at all. If you are planning on living off campus, then you need to start your search soon because the best ones will fill up fast.

Niche User

Parking: I don't own a car, so I don't have to deal with the parking situation directly. That's also the reason I don't own a car.

Niche User

Parking: Parking is a little messy. We have different zones to park in: A is for faculty, B is for grad students, and C is for everybody else. The problem is that the C-zones are so far apart, and there are not enough. I will tell you that Auburn is definitely a walking campus. It's not that you can't find a spot, it's just that you can't find a spot that you really want.

Niche User

Parking: If you bring a car to Auburn, then I would suggest not driving to class. Just take the Tiger Transit and only use your car for errands off campus or something. Tiger Transit used to suck, but it's getting better. So, take it to go on campus. That's my advice.

Niche User

Parking: As a freshman, you get the worst parking, but even then it's not that bad. It feels really bad for the first month or so, but you get used to it. If you live in the Quad, then you have to park half a mile away, but that's the worst of it. If you live anywhere else on campus, then you can park close to your dorm.

Niche User

Parking: The meter maids are quick to give tickets because they get a commission based on how many tickets they write. I got a $25 ticket for parking in the wrong zone over Christmas-when school wasn't even in session! That may give you an idea of how the parking scene is at Auburn.

Niche User

Parking: Certain times, parking isn't that bad; other times, it sucks. From like 9 a.m.-12 p.m., it's pretty much hell getting a space, but it can be done. They are supposed to build some parking garages in the future, but we'll see. I usually avoid parking by taking Tiger Transit, the bus system that runs routes all around Auburn, which takes students to class from apartments.

Niche User

Parking: Parking is better than it is at other schools I've visited, but I wouldn't say it's great. It's not a giant campus, but there is walking involved.

Niche User

Parking: The biggest complaint students have is the parking.If you've got classes in the morning, then it's not a problem, but if you come in the afternoon, I would set aside some extra time to find a spot. And I've been here long enough to know about the secret spots off campus that are closer to my classes and work better than regular parking.

Niche User

Parking: There are huge parking lots for students, but they are way far from the buildings you want to be in, and the parking Nazis (campus parking patrol) will ticket you in a heartbeat if you park wrong. You have to walk a pretty good ways from the parking lots, but hey, it's good exercise.

Niche User

Athletics: Varsity sports are big, especially football. Everyone goes to football games and the six or seven weekends when Auburn is at home are the biggest party weekends of the year.

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.
