3 College Junior

Academics: SWEN is a solid program. The prerequisite structure is unforgiving, however, and students need to make sure they know their plan for the next 3-4 semesters.

Campus Food: It is frustrating that the meal plan is essentially just a credit that can only be spent in on-campus fast food restaurants. No cafeteria to speak of.

Campus Quality: Except for dining options and student housing, campus facilities are generally fairly new and clean. The campus itself is always clean and has plenty of green space.

Party Scene: Night life primarily revolves around apartment parties, frat parties, and the bar scene.

Athletics: Much of Auburn is naturally geared towards college football. The facilities available are superb (new in 2013) and intramural sports are varied and popular as well.

Majors: Admission to SWEN (and other programs) is not difficult. You will be accepted if you have a reasonable GPA.

Majors: My internship experience was tremendously positive, I did not find it through a fair at my school. Generally, it is reasonably easy to find an internship if you have motivation to apply.

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants in the immediate vicinity of campus tend to be fast food, but there are options for those that decide to look closer.

3 College Junior

Administration: Generally, if you're not blatantly breaking rules, there aren't many problems. Be careful about compromising trash bags or receipts. The only real problem is parking - make sure to never park in zones that you do not have the decal for or it is very likely you will be ticketed/towed.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing on-campus is unacceptable. Freshmen are not guaranteed housing (chances are determined by how fast you signed up online), and even the housing that is provided is old and moldy. There are no real amenities provided. Depending on your major, your dorm could very well be farther from class than some off-campus housing options. Rooms are not extremely small but not very large either. Worst of all, the value is absolutely terrible - even expensive off-campus housing options are almost always cheaper on a per-month basis than the dorms are. And to top it off, RAs can be a mixed bag; some will cause a havoc for playing music at a somewhat-high volume.

Guys & Girls: As in any place, you have to put effort into finding people with similar interests to create real friendships.

Off-Campus Housing: Cost of off-campus housing is artificially high since Auburn has so few dorms available. Availability is very good. By far the worst part is that parking at every housing location near campus has aggressive towing practices.

Transportation: Transportation is very good: there are bus lines that run to almost all off-campus housing locations, and there are night buses that act as taxis.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity, particularly in political beliefs, is not very high. National diversity is acceptable, since there is a sizable international student population.

Technology: Generally, computer access is acceptable. There are multiple labs across campus and within specific departments available. However, wireless coverage can be spotty and unreliable at times. Speeds are never very fast, and all BitTorrent traffic is blocked.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Even though Greek participation reaches just 1/3 of the overall student body, much of the social interaction revolves around (or at least includes) Greek life.

Scholarships: Applying for financial aid was somewhat of a hassle but I ended up getting what I needed. Although a little more scholarship money never hurt anyone. I also applied for multiple scholarships which did in fact help a great deal. But while the process of applying for scholarships or financial aid seems overwhelming and intimidating; it can be very rewarding. The more scholarships you apply for the more chances you have of receiving! Take the chance and apply, who knows it could all work out in your favor!

Majors: The typical internship in my opinion is training you for the real world. Whether that being getting coffee for an executive or taking notes on a marketing pitch; the world of being an intern is full of possibilities. The pay for an intern will differ. Things that will be taken into account on that subject will be; other work experience, new employee, how many other interns, etc. The pay could be minimum wage or not a single dollar. Time commitment is going to be that of a real job, 40 hour work week. Responsibilities are important and can vary. I haven't participated in an internship yet, but I am currently looking in hopes of finding one for this upcoming summer.

Majors: Being a Sports Management major at Auburn where they do not offer this degree is a little discomforting. Although I am taking other college's curriculum for their sports management programs and fitting it into my own, it still makes me a little nervous. I will only be getting my bachelor's from Auburn, and I will go on to get my masters then I will be attending law school. Even though it is a lot of school, I know in the end it will pay off.

Parking: The parking on Auburn's campus is absolutely awful. While some of the parking might be close to your dorm, there is never a parking space. But then there are so many other different scenarios; say you park in a Auburn parking lot named R; well that is totally fine if you live in the residence halls in the Village but say you live in the Quad. Looks like you are going to have to walk 15-20 minutes. Or for instance you park in RO and you live in the Hill, that walk will take you 30 minutes minimum. Also, Auburn's parking service tickets people like crazy. If your car is parked in the wrong area for 15 minutes consider it either ticketed or towed. So warning to all who will drive to Auburn's campus, parking is terrible.

Administration: Auburn University is a southern school in the heart of Dixie. Which means two very important things; Auburn is a SEC school and football is treated like a religion down here. Those factors being said, game days are fun and full of excitement but also alcohol. The policies at Auburn are very strict about alcohol whether it be on game day or in the residence halls. The police force are known in Auburn for handing out MIP (minor in possession) out like pieces of candy on Halloween. If you get caught going to the stadium on game day with alcohol on your person you automatically get an MIP, your parents get called, and you aren't allowed to attend that game. If you get caught again, your tickets for the rest of the season are revoked. And if you happen to get caught a third time, you will no longer be allowed to purchase or attend any football games as an Auburn student in Jordan-Hare Stadium. With all of that being said, just follow the rules. Drink if you're of age and don't drink if you aren't legal.

Scholarships: I received a good amount of financial aide. I only wish for my last semester that I could have used the money for Fall and Spring. I couldn't do that so my last semester ended up being really expensive.

Campus Food: There are a ton of great food places on and within walking distance of campus. Whatever you are in the mood for Auburn has. They have restaurants all over campus so no matter where you are there is dining place near by. The meal plan is great and if you end up taking online classes or are off campus they will allow you to not pay for the dining plan.

Campus Quality: Auburn has so many opportunities for students like study abroad, co-op, internships, and programs students can participate in. I actually have the opportunity to go work at Disney in the college program and Auburn is a huge supporter of them. A lot of my friends have worked at Disney and Auburn has representatives on campus which is helpful when you have any questions.

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.
