Weather: Auburn is th e"lovliest village on the plains." Even on days that is rains whihc is rarly it is still beatiful

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: My school is not too strict. They expected to be adults and they treat you that way. Every student is expected to uphold the creed and it is based off repsect for yourself as well as your fellow student.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety on Campus – I feel very safe on campus. There are plenty of people there to look out for you.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: From personal experience, I have not seen a lot of drug abuse at Auburn. The school has a strict policy against it. I have seen a more usage with alcohol. It is not used on campus, but it definately part of the nightlife experience. Auburn University strictly prohibits the use of drugs and alcohol on campus. Any violation could result in serious punishment.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife in Auburn is very diverse. Some people like to go downtown to our many clubs/bars or out to eat, some people like to go the library for an all night study session, and some people just like to sit at home and relax while watching their favorite television show. The transit system is also availble late at night for people who need it.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Student Life on Campus – The students on campus make Auburn such a loveable place. There is a since of belonging when you walk around. Everybody seems like family. Everyone is really helpful and really nice to everyone. I cannot imagine going to a school that did not have this kind of relationship between its students. I love AU!

Overall Experience: Auburn has been wonderful. Everyone her is so wonderful!

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus Housing is wonderful! Cost is not really high, parking is great. I feel very safe at my house.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers at Auburn are really good. They have tech people ready to help if there is a problem. I believe that having a laptop is better for the student. There is wireless access all throughout campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Not Too Bad – I don't spend alot of time on campus because of field sampling, but I haven't heard anything bad. They have lax rules during football game days.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Off Campus – I live off campus and am a graduate student, so the dorms and fraturnities are not for me. However, I have heard great things about the undergraduates and housing options.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Football Is Huge – With Auburn University ranked number 1 in the country, the entire campus is electric. Everyone is excited for the next game. Tailgating and going to the games is very hard to beat, though catching the game on the radio and hearing how our university does, sends chills down my spine (in a good way). Its great to have a reputation as a sporting community.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I Believe in a Spirit That Is Not Afraid. Auburn is the home to many outstanding athletes and school spirit. We are home to olympic athletes and the national champion swimming and diving teams. The most popular sport, of course, is football. (We are in the SEC.) Fall Saturdays in Jordan Hare Stadium are electric. Words cannot wholly express the how amazing it is that the Auburn Family joins together each week in support for our team. The Auburn Creed, which the football players know by heart, states "...I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body, and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities..." This creed is truly personified each week by not only the players, but the fans, students, alumni, and Auburn Family as a whole. Win or lose, we stick by our tigers.

Local Atmosphere: The Loveliest Village on the Plains – Auburn is set in east Alabama, about 40 minutes from the Georgia line. It is considered in the "plains" of Alabama, which is a vast area of semi-flat land. The most beneficial product of being set in the plains are the beautiful sunsets. They are a nightly occurrence that never cease to disappoint. The local atmosphere is of genuine hospitality. This hospitality was recently honored in an article written by visitors from South Carolina, who had come in town for a football game. Even though their team lost the game, they made a point to highlight the true hospitable nature of Auburn Men and Women. The Auburn Creed is not merely a document, but a lifestyle illustrated by those who attend.

Academics: Above Average SEC School – The registration process and counselors/advisors are absolutely amazing. Registering is very user-friendly, and the advisors are always available for questions. For the most part, my professors have been both knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. The curriculum is time consuming, but manageable. My only complaint is the availability of tutors for the athletes that are not available to non student athletes.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: They're GREAT!! The bands that come through Auburn are AMAZING!! Cops could care less about underage drinking; only drawback is it BYOB!

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: We all love Auburn and so we all love each other like a big family!! Everyone on this campus is beautiful inside and out!! :)

4 College Freshman

Computers: Not sure about school-provided computers, they are usually available during the day, but you can get WiFi everywhere, so if you have your own computer, its not a problem!!

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: Go greek freshman year – If you don't join a frat/sorority you will be so bored! There is absolutely nothing to do on campus party-wise if you're not greek. All hot girls only go for frat guys. You can't get into the bars until you're 19.

Facilities: Auburn has very good academic programs, especially engineering and architecture. They also have pretty good dining options, if you aren't vegetarian/vegan. They have several nice study abroad options. They also save you money on gas and parking with their transit system which is very handy, and goes almost anywhere you could possibly live.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Tons of Greek – Most of the Greek students talk too much and are extremely cliquey. Their housing is extremely nice, sorority girls live in the village which are new and very nice. However, Greek students rarely talk to someone who doesn't have the Greek alphabet on their clothing.

3 College Student

Campus Dining: Limited Dining – There are several options for me to eat, but besides a couple variations it's mostly sandwiches. A couple things are relatively cheap, but you can't spend less than 7 or 8 bucks for a meal and drink. Hardly any vegan or vegetarian options.

Parking: The C lot on campus is the only parking that a student can obtain. A and B lots are for faculty and staff only. This makes it difficult to get to class on time if you do not plan ahead to look for parking. Ticketing is ridiculous because you can be ticketed for almost anything. Some fines are fairly cheap, but all in all the parking right off of campus is much better than on campus.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The Student ACT Needs Work – The current student activities center is old and outdated, however there are already plans for construction for a renovated center. The computer labs are up to date for the most part, and the recent construction on campus has made Auburn a campus with some of the newest buildings in the country. The library is old, but it is well kept up and I enjoy visiting it for studying. The campus is the most gorgeous place you have ever seen; The Plains can't be beat!

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: You Couldn't Ask for a Safer Campus – The security on campus is great. There is a security shuttle which will take you anywhere on campus at any time of the night. If it is after 6 PM and you need a ride from campus to somewhere off campus, then you can take the night transit safely. In regards to special security measures, there are police all over campus at any point and time ready to help a person in need. There are also cameras set up around campus in various entrances to buildings. I feel safe on Auburn's campus at ANY time of the day or night, and I would be stunned if the school could make it much safer.

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.
