5 College Freshman

Transportation: Great Transit System – The transit system will take you just about anywhere you need to go on campus

5 College Freshman

Administration: Very Safe Environment – I feel very safe on campus. None of the rules are too restrictive

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: They guys and girls are good looking on both sides, and extremely sweet and friendly. The dress is definitely very southern, cowboy boots are big for guys; nike shorts and t-shirts with chaos for girls.

Campus Housing: Residence Life – All the dorms are great, the quad is by far the best though. They're older, however they are right in the middle of campus. It's a 5 minute or less walk to any class, or downtown. If I could live there again I would! There are two rooms connected by a bathroom so there aren't any communal bathrooms. I'm living in the village sorority dorms now and it's the equivalent of an apartment. The village is perfect for sophomores and up since you can still walk to class (though about 15 minute walk now) and you can use the security shuttle system.

Technology: Slow Network – The network makes skype very frustrating, but at least it's usually up.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Auburn University is definately well known for its sports programs, primarily football. We are part of the SEC and have won multiple national championships as well as having multiple Heismann winners. The fans are the best I've ever known and the entire city goes crazy on game day.

Campus Housing: Auburn has 3 housing options: the Village, the Quad, and the Hill. The Village has super nice amenities and they're brand new. The atmosphere is also more private if that's what you're looking for, however, they are the most expensive dorms and are farthest away from the main part of campus. Next is the Quad housing, which in my opinion is the best. The Quad dorms are not as nice as the ones in the Village, but they're nicer than the Hill. They're also less expensive than the Village, but more expensive than the Hill. The major thing that the Quad has going for it is that you're right in the middle of campus. Finally, there is the Hill. These dorms are the worst. They're reasonably far from the middle of campus (not as far as the Village) and they're old and a bit worn down. On the plus side, they're also the cheapest option.

Off-Campus Dining: Food options at Auburn Dining are fairly expensive, as one would assume from a primarily college town. However, in its defense, it does have variety and a nice balance between the classier establishments and the quick fast-food options. One local restaurant that is good to check out is Little Italy. The pricing is reasonable and the food is delicious, albeit it's not anything classy if that's what you're looking for. Another winner is The Gnu's Room, a used bookstore/coffee shop that frequently has poetry readings, musical venues, etc.

Administration: I don't know of any limitations on campus, so I would say not so strict.

Campus Quality: Clean and Inviting – Our campus facilities are clean and well kept. I love hanging out on campus and using everything it has to offer.

1 College Student

Parking: For students who live on campus we have to park our car in such a far away lot we have to take a bus to get there. It's awful.

5 College Student

Athletics: I love the fan support of the Auburn Tigers. When we say the Auburn Family, we really mean it. Whether we win lose or tie in any sport we are always super supportive of our teams.

5 College Student

Campus Quality: Student Center Rocks – The student center here is gorgeous. It is home to several dining places & a coffee shop. It is filled with tables to enjoy your meal at, couches to enjoy the tons of televisions at, and also long tables which are perfect for studying. On the first floor is located a game room, which has every video game and every game system you can think of. They'll show sporting games and movies on a big screen with a projector. Auburn's student center also has the Foy Hotline. It is a number you can call and ask them any question you want and they'll answer it. For example, where is Samford Hall? Or how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie-pop?

3 College Junior

Weather: You may see less traffic in walking or in buildings because of snow or rain but you will still see about 50 percent of the people you normally see

4 College Junior

Athletics: Our athletics could use some improvement. Maybe more money for scholarships to offer to better players. Although honestly I can see that we are trying...I can say that our teams don't give up....we are persistent

4 College Freshman

Majors: Pre Med – The only thing I have against Auburn is their lack of a medical program.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The football team is one of the best in the country. Fan support is huge and it can even divide families to the point of not speaking! Prepare to be dragged in, even if you don't want to!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good Food, Farish Drive – The best off campus driving is too far to walk to, but there is a great selection just off campus, by Toomer's Corner. And, of course, the Auburn experience is complete without a visit to the drug store itself.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Not a Problem – Auburn is a large school, but still maintains a small town feel. I don't feel like there is an issue. Most of the students are from Alabama, but any public school pulls a majority of its students from within the local state.

Campus Food: Good but Lacking Options – The dinning plan at Auburn is very simple, and enforces good habits with money. The overall variety is a little weak. Many of the restaurants offer large meals, and many are fast food. For some students, a large, expensive meal isn't always necessary, nor the healthiest option.

Health & Safety: Safe and Noticable – Auburn feels secure. The campus is well lit, and there are emergency phones that are highlighted, designed and placed on campus that you can see one at any time. The city police are always on patrol, and that is very nice.

3 College Freshman

Technology: computers work fine, printers easily get backed up

4 College Freshman

Majors: Lots of Opportunities – I've never had an internship myself, but it seems like there a job fairs going on all the time and there's always someone here conducting interviews.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Rush or You'll Regret It! I must admit, Greek life pretty much runs this school. However, it's not the stuck-up, elitist, live-to-party scene that it is at some other schools. For the most part, greeks here are classy and friendly. I would definitely recommend rushing. Even if you don't pledge, it's a great way to meet people. Frat houses vary as far as how nice they are, but sororities have VERY nice on-campus dorms.

Local Area: Classic Small-Town – I came to Auburn from a huge city and I can't get enough of the small-town charm. Everyone in the city of Auburn is so supportive of the university and its students. The shopping isn't so great - only one mall and it kind of stinks - but the local restaurants are amazing and there's always something fun to do. Atlanta is a short drive away for a fun night out.

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.
