Athletics: School Spirit at Auburn is over the top. You can expect full attendance at most sporting events. Also, all events are free to students except for football.

Off-Campus Housing: The Veranda at Auburn is where I have lived this year. It is a great place to live, just 1/2 mile from campus with a bike lane all the way to campus. The Tiger Transit picks up in the parking lot for the short ride into campus. The amenities are great, with a pool, jacuzzi, fitness room, clubhouse, tennis, beach volleyball and basketball.

There are three bedrooms for rent for Fall 2013 in my unit and the rent is only $400 per month per bedroom. This includes utilities, wireless internet and cable! Please email me if you are a male seeking a place to live for the fall.

Campus Quality: Auburn is a beautiful campus. Every professor genuinely cares about your well being.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The location to most all off campus housing is reasonable to the campus. Tiger Transit, which is ran by the university, goes to just about every place a student might live off campus making it a realistic option for everyone.

Administration: Do not risk underage drinking if you are downtown and making a fool of yourself. The police will arrest you. Don't bring alcohol to any sporting events (minus tailgating.)

Technology: I have never had an issue with Auburn's computer labs or their printing service. Their Wi-fi does occasionally fade in and out, but It has been doing pretty good the past few months. There is always a tech in just about every major building that can assist you with printing, wifi problems, etc. There is also a licensed Apple Tech. that will fix your computer for free as part of your tuition-- Good if you have a Macbook but not so much for PCs.! Hope that helps!

Majors: I have interned for a design firm that was unpaid. It was however, very beneficial in regards to gaining a better understanding of day to day tasks. It taught me responsibility, determination, and how working from the bottom up will earn you more respect in the long run.

Weather: Really hot in the summer and fall. Luckily most of the apartment communities have pools. Gets pretty cold and windy in the winter, but rarely snows.

Majors: I was in the College of Human Sciences. My major was Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Middle Chidhood and Adolescence. I LOVED my major. My classes were interesting and applicable to life, and my internship was awesome. I actually got a job with my internship after graduation. I do know that people who chose other concentrations in HDFS, like Child-Life, found it difficult to get internships. Some of them had to change concentrations just so they could get an intership and graduate.

Diversity: AU has students from several different countries and many different races, but the overall minority percentage is only about 12% (I got this stat from the AU website). Most of the students are white and from the US. This is a large school, though, so no matter what race/ethnicity or religion, you can find others from a similar background if you want, or the student body as a whole is pretty accepting, so you can find friends from a completely different background.

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus at night, and definitely safe during the day. There have only been a handful of incidences in the past few years where someone has been attacked on campus at night. If you are walking by yourself from the library to your car, you can ask the security guy to walk with you if you want. He stays by the door for that reason. There are also several emergency call boxes around campus if you feel that you are in danger. The walkways are also pretty well lit.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are several really great dining options in the area, whether you want pizza, BBQ, sandwiches, Asian, Mexican, or steak. There are several chains, but also a lot of local restaurants. If you are a member of the Student Alumni Association, several places offer discounts or free menu items when you show your card. There are also coupon books you can get at the beginning of each semester that include coupons for several restaurants, as well as other businesses around town. And if you don't have a coupon, there are still options friendly to every budget.

Party Scene: There are several bars downtown to choose from, but if you are underage, only a couple have 18+ nights. None of the bars/clubs are always 18+. Location is great because they are across the street from campus. There is parking nearby, but if you live on campus, I suggest taking the night buses. Parking fills up quickly on Wednesday nights (when a lot of people go out) and weekends. Overall, I always enjoyed going out in Auburn, and the different bars allowed me to choose if I wanted to dance, or if I just wanted to sit and drink with friends.

Campus Quality: Auburn's College of Engineering is one of the finest. If that is not enough, our co-op program is very well-organized. Co-oping is strongly encouraged for engineering students, which is something I have found to be quite progressive. Many other campuses offer co-op programs, but the emphasis Auburn puts on its program is unique. The co-op office staff are very friendly and happy to help you schedule interviews, fill out necessary paperwork, and make sure you are prepared to begin your co-op experience.

Campus Quality: Auburn's campus is beautiful. Most of the classroom buildings are either relatively new or very well-kept. There is plenty of green space. Auburn also boasts one of the largest (by volume of books) libraries in the USA. Finding a place to study on campus, if not in the library, is not a problem. It would have warranted an A+, but there are a few classroom buildings that desperately need to be updated/renovated.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many small, local restaurants which offer unique options. Restaurants can be found in all price ranges. If you are willing to drive a few miles, there are also several restaurants that offer Asian, Mexican, Indian, etc. cuisine.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Football and basketball. That's it. Intramurals exist but aren't huge. The current rec facilities are horrible for non-athletes, but the new rec center (to open fall 2013) should fix that.

Great fans for football and basketball, but nothing else.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most greek girls will wear leggings/nike shorts with an oversized t-shirt and tennis shoes or chacos. Others will wear jeans and a cute top. Not too dressy, but with a stronger focus on makeup/hair. Most girls wear minimal makeup/a natural look. If you don't wear makeup to class, it's not abnormal.

Girls are (for the most part) friendly and happy.

Guys will wear jeans/khaki and a tshirt or collared shirt. Guys (especially frat boys) dress up more than girls.

Weather: Coming from Iowa, I appreciated the fact that I could wear shorts in October. It's pretty nice weather. You'll need to wear jeans and a jacket November-February.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are plenty of frat parties and the bars are always busy. The only problem is you can't get into bars unless you're 19 (the legal age is 19 in Alabama, not 18 like everywhere else). I don't drink, and there's not much to do on campus if you don't.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Extremely low crime rate. Someone was sexually assaulted last week and it was a huge deal- The first time something like that has happened all year. We also have the security shuttle (aka "drunk bus") that you can call (like a taxi service) any time from 6pm-6am. It will take you anywhere on campus, so it's great for getting a ride to the library, a friend's dorm, or a party across campus. The only problem is that you'll wait 10-30 mins for it to arrive and you have to wait for the people who got on the bus first to be dropped off, so you might be on the shuttle for 20-40mins.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Hill and the Quad are the oldest. They both have similar, fairly plain rooms. I've lived in the Hill and have never found the room too small, but they're not extremely large either. It's suite-style living (two rooms with two roommates each share a bathroom) The main difference is that the Hill is about a 10min walk from the center of campus while the Quad is right there in the middle of campus. "Residence life"/a sense of community is strongest here because the lobbies are where people hang out, rather than in their own living space (see below).

The Village is also about 10 mins away, but it's the newer dorms. Central living area with couch/table/counter/sink/refrigerator/microwave shared by 4 roommates who each get their own individual small room. South Donahue is just being built now- It's supposed to have granite countertops, flat-screens, and a similar layout to the Village. Expensive.

Transportation: AU does a good job of providing transportation to and from the university. The after-hours bar transportation is very nice as well. There is sometimes some miscommunication among the drivers, but I imagine that happens everywhere.

5 College Senior

Academics: I have had 4 majors and the schools are uniformly excellant. However be very careful with visiting instructors - a few have limited English skills and a chip on their shoulders.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Very active Greek life and a fit for most everyone - competitive sororities

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.
