3 College Freshman

Administration: the only complaint I have is that people play loud music in my dorm all night long and no one says anything to them about it.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus, but I never walk alone if I can help it. The security shuttle makes everything a million times better, but sometimes they can take up to an hour to pick me up.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It's a challenging curriculum, and a really heavy workload. But I love it.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Girls don't wear real clothes to class. It's always leggings or nike shorts, and chacos. I don't understand.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think that non greek students resent greek students for their privileges to some extent. Personally, I don't really care that much about it, and I have some great friends that are greek. However, there is definitely a stereotype of frat guys being alcoholic jerks and sorority girls being loose, arrogant, and airheaded.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a great variety, and there's a long list of places I still haven't tried. I mostly just eat on campus or cook at home

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Everything went really smoothly. there was even a $1000 scholarship that I had never heard about that practically fell into my lap. I got an email one day saying that I needed to write a thank you letter to the donor of the scholarship money, and that's how I found out that I had received the scholarship in the first place.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There's a lot of variety, which i really appreciate. The only complaint i have is that rye of the tiger in the Hill is disgusting. I would probably eat there most of the time since it's right next to my dorm, but I just can't stomach it.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't gotten into any of the classes that are specifically for my major yet, but just the basic maths and sciences are tough. It's a pretty heavy work load but most of my classes are still enjoyable.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The frat parties are average for the most part, although there are a few frats that consistently throw good ones. I'm not the person to ask though. I'm not much of a partier.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are really nice, but I live in the Hill. It's okay, and the things that bother me about my dorm are mostly due to my suite mates and their lack of personal hygiene. My room is fine and my room mate and I have plenty of space. The only other things that bother me are the construction workers that are always in and out of the building. They're working on the room right next to mine and have woken me up in the morning on several occasions. They have also tracked dust and dirt down the hallway in front of my room and down the staircase. The other thing is that the common areas of the building are rather dirty and extremely old and outdated. the upholstery on the couches is ripped in places and the kitchen appliances are at least 30 years old and rusty. Also, there have been corn flakes stuck to the wall in the stairwell literally since the day i moved in.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football is the sport that generates the most school spirit and student involvement. It brings the the students (and teachers) together in such a huge way. Game days have such a feeling of community and family.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics here are great. We are constantly building up our programs and making them better. From equestrian competitions to a football game, students, faculty, and fans join together for a great experience.

Scholarships: I haven't had any problems with financial aid, but they do get very overwhelmed when the terms change because there are just so many students, so it can run a little slow. Most times, however, it is all completed the week before a new term starts and they are more than willing to help and answer any questions.

Off-Campus Housing: The school opened a website to help students and teachers find roommates/sublets/housing off campus, which is great. There is an awesome variety of housing styles to choose from and the realtors are great as well.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: While there are many, many places to eat off campus, a lot of them are of the same variety - southern, fast, Chinese, etc. Some are definitely better than others, but I would say there is a good variety of places to eat when you want to go out, especially depending on your budget. I happen to be a stickler when it comes to money, so I don't eat out terribly often, but when I do eat out I would say the prices are pretty fair.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is, in my opinion, held to a high standard. We have a program called AUAlert that will send emails, texts, and phone calls whenever something happens whether it be bad weather, an assault, or anything in between. There are also posts scattered around campus that have a "help" button if you are in danger. We are taught in Camp War Eagle (orientation) that if we are in danger, we can run from one post to the next to make a trail of where we are so it is easier for police to find us. You can also see another post from the post you are currently standing at. We also have a night campus bus that can be called and the drivers will take you anywhere on campus for free. I am extremely scared of most things and being on campus is one of the most comforting places I can be. I have never been scared or felt threatened on campus. The police have quick reaction time whenever things do happen, but that is very rare.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Students are very involved when it comes to athletics. Very supportive and lots of school spirit.

3 College Junior

Administration: Very strict when it comes to academic honesty and parking. More lenient on alcohol and parties.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of freedom and very convenient being close to campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's mostly just fast food options. Not a lot of healthy restaurants and hardly no student discounts.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus, but I heard friends complain about it.

3 College Junior

Majors: Must be accepted into program for my major. Very competitive. Keep applying and don't give up.

Scholarships: It wasn't too bad of an experience. Received departmental scholarships but took forever to receive financial aid.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Better than my hometown. lots of expansion.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
