Auburn is football, as some people say down here. Students rave about the high energy and school spirit that is displayed on game days. You don't have to worry about getting bored around here, especially if you're a sports fanatic! Attend a varsity game or get involved in an intramural sport, if that's your thing. Students promise that you'll have fun, no matter what you choose.

Just because sports are widely popular at Auburn, don't think that there isn't anything else for you to get involved in. If sports are not your thing, then there are plenty of other activities and organizations to be a part of. However, part of your tuition will go towards funding the sports on campus, so if that is not a main attraction to you, then you might want to reconsider.

School Spirit
Overwhelming! School spirit thrives in Auburn, especially during the football season. The town transforms into almost a metropolis during home games. You can even hear the roar of the crowd in the stadium from several miles away. Don't try to drive downtown on a home game day; you'll be taken over by a sea of orange and blue tailgaters and game-day attendees.
Getting Tickets
Football tickets are more difficult to get for underclassmen, but tickets to most games can be bought or sold outside of the university program, though prices may be higher. All other sports tickets are easy to get.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The Arboretum, the Quad, downtown Auburn, Chewalkla State Park

Auburn swimming is usually top in the nation. At the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Auburn swimmers earned 16 medals!
