An advantage of living in a small college town is that it attracts a wide variety of eateries that will satisfy any palate. Students love eating off campus, and since many of the best restaurants in town are located in nearby downtown, it's not a difficult ordeal to grab a bite to eat.

Most restaurants off campus, especially the ones downtown, accept the TigerCard, which allow students to easily pay for food. Students enjoy the atmosphere of the local bars and restaurants that often feature live bands during the week or drink specials. Don't worry about going hungry in Auburn; just beware to not rack up the bills on your TigerCard!
