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.

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.

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.

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.

Niche User

Diversity: The campus is very diverse (prepare yourself).

Niche User

Diversity: Not at all diverse. They're working on it, but you've probably heard of the racial incident that happened with a certain frat at Auburn. If not, then just check it out, and it'll pretty much tell you what happened.

Niche User

Diversity: It is not as diverse as somewhere like LA, but for Alabama, it is doing pretty well. There are lots of foreign students, big gay and lesbian population, and several black frats. That is one of the big things that AU is working on; they are trying to become more diverse. I have seen a huge change in just the past three years.

Diversity: There are a lot of different kinds of people, but everybody usually sticks to their own ethnic groups.

Diversity: It's not that diverse. I, myself, am an Asian Indian, and there are not too many Indians here. There are many white people.

Niche User

Diversity: I'd say it's pretty diverse. Lots of different types of people. I would definitely suggest getting involved with something you're interested in. I was on the color guard and in a sorority, so that's where I met most of my friends.

Niche User

Diversity: I don't think it's very diverse here. I mean, sure there are all types of different people here, but it's mostly white people.

Niche User

Diversity: Auburn's campus thrives on diversity. On our campus, there are members of every race, sex, and religion. The great thing is that no one treats you any differently because of who you are, and that's what made me fall in love with Auburn. The people here are second to none. You won't find a better atmosphere anywhere, and I'll stand by that. It's also great that we have organizations for each group to be a part of. These groups cater to the special needs that each member has and does their best to help them out.

Niche User

Diversity: The campus is not as diverse as some would like. Whites outnumber minorities big time, but school officials are trying to equalize the numbers. It will never be equal, but they are trying to make it close to even. Regardless, there are opportunities for everyone and no one is left out.

Niche User

Diversity: Auburn really isn't that diverse. Most people here are from Alabama or somewhere else in the South, so they don't have much to compare it to. Auburn is filled with your `good old-fashioned Bible-beater,' as they call them down here. If you're even a little bit liberal, then brace yourself. You might be shocked by some of the opinions on diversity down here.

Niche User

Nightlife: The bar scene is decent at AU. Going out to the bars and clubs does not dominate campus like it does in some places. Downtown, there are a few bars mixed in with shops and restaurants. Some other bars in downtown are Bodega, Bourbon Street, and Tigris. Tigris is probably the best. There are some other clubs out on Opelika Road about three to five minutes away. Highlands is really cool with a huge outside wooden deck. Then, out on Wire Road, about five minutes away from campus, there are the redneck bars, Champs and Struttin' Duck.

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.
