The campus of this school is so beautiful and everyone at the school was so kind and helpful. The academics are amazing and there are no communal dorm bathrooms!

I have visited Auburn during a summer camp and fell in love with the campus. The staff was beyond polite.

I'd always heard that if you want to be a veterinarian, you go to Auburn. Just like if you want to be a lawyer, you go to Harvard. There's a lot of frat boys and sorority girls, partiers, spoiled rich kids living on their parents' dollar…I feel like that's nothing unique to Auburn though. The people who want to be here for constructive reasons will find ways to commit and manage their time to get it done and make something of themselves. I've been out of school for 10 years, off serving in the military and maybe that's the reason I find the younger crowd seemingly still irresponsible and undisciplined when I came back. I like to keep in simple, you get out what you put in, it's just the way it is.
