Computers: It's always good to bring a personal computer just because you can do work at home on your own time and don't have to worry about if the labs are open or available, and the campus charges to print stuff. The labs are good and usually not too packed until midterm and final time.

Niche User

Computers: If you go to a computer lab in the middle of the day, then you'll find that it will be pretty crowded. You can usually find one or two open seats, but if it isn't a big deal, then I'd recommend going at night.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities are beautiful here. The buildings are amazing to look at. The athletic facilities are awesome, especially the baseball stadium, Plainsman Park, voted consistently as one of the top collegiate baseball stadiums in the nation. Everyone who visits the campus talks about how beautiful everything is here.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities are great in my opinion. We could always use more and newer buildings, but I like what we have.

Niche User

Facilities: Facilities are great. The whole student union area is has been redone and expanded. It was adequate before, but now a lot bigger. Our library is huge, something like the biggest on-campus library in the nation (other than Harvard). It's pretty impressive. The Student Activities Center is great: weight room, basketball courts, volleyball, racquetball, swimming, and tennis courts. It is an extremely clean campus. Obviously, the sports facilities like Jordan-Hare Stadium and Plainsman Park (baseball) are top-notch.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities at Auburn are awesome. Many of the buildings have been recently redone and are in great shape. All of our athletic facilities are wonderful. They take great pride in keeping it looking great.

Niche User

Facilities: The dorms on campus have been redone in the last several years, so they are really nice and not that bad to stay in. Also, our library is ranked number two in the nation, after Harvard. It is five stories tall and is full of every book, magazine, and newspaper that you could imagine. There are also computer labs on each floor and several private group study rooms. There is a small snack area in the basement where you can take a break after long hours of studying.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities are definitely improving. Most of the buildings are older, but they are taking every necessary step to fix them up.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities on campus are very nice. The computers are modern, and all the athletic facilities are easy to access and clean.

Campus Dining: Food on campus is okay. Since campus and town are pretty much right there with each other, I found myself eating many meals in downtown Auburn.

Niche User

Campus Dining: People complain about on-campus food, but I like it. I lived on the Hill during my freshman year, so I ate at Terrell a lot. It has a nice atmosphere, and all the people there are friendly. The food was pretty good, too. They served a nice variety and always had a salad bar available. I liked it.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food is excellent on campus, and I love the way they do it. You have your TigerCard and either have a descending or an ascending account and you eat whenever and wherever you want. A lot of places around town also take TigerCard. Everywhere is good.

Niche User

Campus Dining: To tell you the truth, I have never eaten on campus except during freshman orientation.

Niche User

Campus Dining: It's easy to gain the `Freshman 15' at Auburn, especially if you eat at Chick-fil-A a lot.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food is awesome! I seriously cannot think of a place in Auburn that is not good.

Niche User

Campus Housing: If you're going to live on campus, then sign up for it quickly! I got a place to live for my first two years, but both times, I got my second choice. I thought I signed up early enough! Guess not.

Niche User

Campus Housing: Never lived in a dorm, never wanted to.

Niche User

Campus Housing: I never lived in the dorms, so I have a hard time commenting. I know housing fills up fast, so I would apply as soon as you can. Everyone says it's best to live there your freshman year.

Niche User

Campus Housing: You don't want to live in a dorm, but if you had to choose any dorm on `the Hill,' the best would be Duncan, Sasnett, or Boyd.

Niche User

Campus Housing: Everyone complains about the dorms, but I personally don't see what's so bad about them. Sure, you have to share a room with another person and a bathroom with three people, but living in the dorms is a good experience for everyone. Everyone should live there, at least for their freshman year. Off-campus housing is sometimes hard to come by and usually pretty expensive.

Niche User

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are nice. The newer dorms are smaller but a little nicer and come with a fridge and microwave. The older dorms are a little bigger and don't come with as many amenities. I stayed in Boyd Hall freshman year and had the time of my life. I recommend dorms for your freshman year because it really is a great way to meet people.

Diversity: Anyone who honestly believes that Auburn is that diverse is kidding themselves. I suppose for an Alabama university, it's not bad. But Auburn is largely white and conservative.

Niche User

Diversity: Whether or not you think Auburn is diverse depends on your definition. Racially-not much at all. Auburn is almost 90 percent white. Other than that, though, there are a ton of people from out of state. I think like 40 percent of students are from outside Alabama. That's really high for a state school. I'm from Texas and there are lots of people from the Atlanta area (which is only an hour and a half away), and you generally meet people from all over the US.

Niche User

Diversity: The campus is incredibly diverse. There are people from all kinds of backgrounds at Auburn.

Niche User

Diversity: Diversity is something Auburn has been working on. It's not San Francisco, but we are a diverse university and have something for everybody.

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.
