Athletics: Football is Auburn's biggest thing in the world. During the fall, it's great. People come from everywhere to go to the games here. The atmosphere is so awesome. I'm not involved in any IM sports, so I don't know. Sororities and fraternities do IM sports and those are a lot of fun, but I don't know about campus wide.

Niche User

Athletics: Varsity sports are a major part of Auburn. The football games are unbelievable. It is so much fun. The student body is so supportive of all the sports. We have parades and pep rallies for games, and the spirit is unbelievable. Tailgating before games is also an experience. It's just a lot of fun and something that makes Auburn what it is. And it's not just football; it's every sport: basketball, baseball, swimming, and more. They are all great. Intramurals are awesome, too. They have all different divisions, like male, female, coed, and Greek. It just goes on and on. They are very competitive, but they are so much fun. I really enjoyed them this year. I played football and softball and had a blast. So, sports are definitely a major part of campus life.

Athletics: I could go on for days on this one. I couldn't imagine going to a school with more spirit than Auburn. It's unbelievable. Varsity sports, especially football, are huge. Football is essentially life at Auburn. When we played Alabama last year, there was something like 160,000 people in town. Tailgating every weekend is unbelievable; the stuff you'll see and the crazy fans that are everywhere will amaze you. Basketball is pretty big when we're winning. Baseball is pretty big. Lots of people go to the games and lots sit up on the hill and tailgate, getting drunk during the game. I know we kick butt in swimming. IM sports are also huge at Auburn. I know AU got rated the number two intramural program in the country several years in a row. Everyone plays. There are Greek leagues and normal leagues in flag football, basketball, soccer, and softball.

Niche User

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.

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

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.

Niche User

Overall Experience: The school is great, the atmosphere is the best, and I love the people. I've had so much fun here.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I'll admit that, for a while, I wished that I had gone to a different school, but everyone feels that way on whatever decision they make. Now, I love Auburn. The people are extremely nice, and it's really close to Atlanta.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I have met so many great people, made so many life-long friends, and learned so much about life in general in just one year that it blows my mind. It has just been indescribable. And I think that if you talk to anyone else that goes here, then you will hear the same thing. When I got to Auburn last fall, I fell in love with it. When I was home in the summer, I couldn't wait to go back. It's incredible. I wouldn't go anywhere else if you paid me to. I bleed orange and blue now.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I'm very happy here. The people are nice, and they treat you well. All around, Auburn is a good school, but it has its flaws just like any other school. When it comes down to it, four years isn't as long as you think, so even if things get tough, just remember you don't have that long here. The only time I wish I was somewhere else is on some weekends.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I went to high school in Auburn, so I was reluctant to apply to the University. But after viewing my choices, I decided that Auburn was my best bet. I haven't had any regrets. A lot of people think that it sucks to go to college in the same town that I've lived in for the past four or five years, but I don't mind it. College is so different from high school that I'm getting to experience a whole new side of Auburn that I never got to enjoy before.

Niche User

Academics: Most of the teachers I've had have been very supportive and interested in their students' needs. Get to know your professors, and they will usually be even more willing to help you out. Most teachers here want to benefit their students, not fail them.

Niche User

Academics: The teachers are good overall. Math teachers are usually foreign, English teachers are usually anal, history teachers enjoy history, and communication teachers like to talk. I really do enjoy the classes I have now, but when you're a freshman or a sophomore you have pretty large lecture classes and really don't get to know your teachers at all. Once you get into your major, you will find that the teachers are more personal and willing to help you out if you need it.

Niche User

Academics: Some of the teachers will be grad students, and that's the best kind to have. They better understand what students are currently going through.

Niche User

Academics: Beware of the GTAs (graduate teaching assistants). Some of them just seem like they're out to get you.

Niche User

Academics: In my experience, the teachers have varied from department to department. All the math and science professors are going to speak a different language-that's almost a given. I am in the business department, and I like most of my professors. It also depends on the class. It doesn't matter who I have for accounting; I'm going to hate the class.

Niche User

Academics: As with any place, it all depends on who you get. I have yet to have a teacher I have loathed, and I have had only a few that I just didn't care for. I have had excellent teachers, fortunately.

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.
