3 College Junior

Weather: Humid Falls – In the fall it is very humid and hot. when you walk to class, there is a good possiblity you will have back sweat when you get there.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Everywhere! Everywhere you turn there are apartments ready to rent. They are pretty average in price and all are in great condition. Even though some may be farther away, we have a transit system that is wonderful. I would recommend off campus housing to everyone.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Tiger Transit – Buses are part of the tuition fees at Auburn. The Tiger Transit can take you anywhere on campus and to a few off campus locations. There's even a late night bus.

3 College Junior

Diversity: At Auburn it's harder for a black student to be accepted by the white kids. Honestly. But everyone seems to stay o themselves.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: All the Hot Spots – Off campus dining at Auburn University is excellent. There are so many different restaurants such as McDonald's, Moe's, Chick-fil-A, etc. All at great prices.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife in Auburn can be really fun. Some of the bars are known for being a bit shady, so they can be avoided. Other well-known ones and house parties can be looked forward to when you want to have a good time.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Labs Are First-Come First-Serve – The computer labs at Auburn University are crowded about half the time. Most people have a laptop that they bring on campus to use the WiFi, but more computers in certain areas of campus would be nice.

3 College Junior

Facilities: WAR EAGLE! Auburn is a down to earth campus. We have the best time during football seasons. We also have what not many schools have - a show choir! And in the newly remodeled building, they even offer more food varieties, such as Starbucks, Chik-fil-a, and Domino's pizza.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Stay at Home – Nightlife around Auburn can be strick. Some places have a strick dress code (no ball caps, no tennis shoes, etc). There are only 2 clubs that aren't 21+. House parties can get out of control so I suggest not going alone for females. On the plus side, there are shuttle buses that will pick you up if you are too intoxicated.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All Parties. Auburn is great for the kids who love to party. To kids that do not party, this school may not be the best place. It is hard to focus on school because there are parties everywhere and everyday. The town does not have anything fun to do but movies, bowling, and bars.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking situation is awful. The car will be ticketed or towed no matter how long the car was parked. It can be parked for 5 min and guaranteed one will have a ticket on the windshield. One has to come when the classes let out to ensure a parking spot. Honestly the best thing is to leave your car at home and take the Tiger transit. Either way you have to ensure at least 30 minutes to park your car or take the transit to get to class on time.

Greek Life: Greek Does Not Mean Anything. Some people may think being Greek is extremely important, but that is not the case in Auburn. Everyone interacts with each other, regardless if one is Greek. Everyone goes to the same parties and a lot of the same events.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transits Could Use Work, Night Shuttles Are Great – The Tiger Transit at Auburn seems like it could be helpful, but finding the right one to take and guessing the amount of time is always difficult. The night shuttles are great! They pick up rather quickly and take you to wherever you need to go.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports Are EXCELLENT – There is nothing more exciting than talking about Auburn athletics! The students at Auburn are the most loyal fans at any college campus. Auburn also is very diverse when it comes to sports. We excel in many different areas such as football, swimming, equestrian team, etc.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Advisors Are Excellent With Helping Students – I have only been in the College of Liberal Arts for a short time, but the advisors are so helpful when it comes to choosing classes and thinking about future career options in my intended major.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Zero Tolerance – There is a zero tolerance for alcohol and drug use on campus and zero tolerance for drug use off campus. The police are on patrol for drunk drivers all the time, so don't drink and drive.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Freedom at a Price – I lived on campus my first two years, and while the value was great, I did not have ready access to my vehicle (it was parked approximately 1 mile away and was damaged several times in the parking lot). They built new dorms closer to the parking lot where my vehicle was parked, so that problem is sort of fixed. I had little privacy in the actual dorm. I lived in an apartment for my junior year, and I loved everything except the price. The average rate with a 3 bedroom apartment is $450-500/month. And the particular apartment I was at, gave lower rates to those who signed up last. I overspent my budget on apartments. There is a great variety, and many high quality of life apartments in the area.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Completely Safe – While there have been numerous accidents from crosswalks, the school has taken many steps to ensure the safety of the students, including lighting the crosswalks at night and re-painting the lines. A couple of years ago a girl was killed on the way to her car in the middle of the night. The school responded by providing night security shuttles and security officers to patrol the area. The local police also patrol the campus throughout the day and night during the school year.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: More Drinkin – You do not really notice the drug use at Auburn if there is any. You see more alcohol than anything.

4 College Student

Campus Dining: Auburn University has a wide variety of food on campus. From the normal places like Chic-Fil-A, Papa Johns and Au Bon Pain to the food dining halls like Terrell and Foy that provide a wide variety of food. The meal plan is also very generous.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Diverse Yet Unified – The variety of people attending auburn university is very typical but surprising. They have many similar interests but in different ways of approaching them.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Conveniently Yet Overpriced – there are plenty of dinning areas off campus but it does not seem to be economically efficient.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Very Nice – The best dorms on campus are in the Village. They are only a year old and offer apartment style living. The other dorms on campus include the Hill and the Quad which are also nice. The cost is a little more than living off campus, but no students are required to ever live on campus. I would recommend it though because it is very convenient and a great way to meet people.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: So Many Choices – The facilities at Auburn are great. There is a very nice stadium for the football games and a brand new arena for basketball and gymnastics. The current student activities center is ok, but a little old, but a new one should be built by Fall 2011. The library is great, the top floor is always very quiet and good for studying. The campus is beautiful, one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Campus activities are great. There is always lots of tail-gating for the games, and fun events like Tiger Nights at the student center and free concerts.

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.
