Party Scene: Now, Auburn is a little bitty town; you have to get pretty creative when trying to enjoy your free nights! They have a few bars that play music, but still allow for friendly conversation. BUT what Auburn is seriously lacking are cool, fun spots to dance the week's stress away!

Technology: Tiger Network – Auburn is chock-full of computers!! First off, the campus library has computers available to everyone. The only thing is, they could use more computer stations. What's more is that each department has at least one computer lab (mine has two!). One is allotted a certain amount of free prining from their respective departments (calculated based on the amount of hours you are enrolled for)! As a graduate student, you have access to graduate labs with free, unlimited printing! Awesome. So grab your User name and Password and War Eagle!

Academics: In Spring of 2011, I started a Master's in Adult Education. What really sold me on the program was the instructors. They are extremely knowledgeable and have a heart for teaching. They give real life examples along with teaching the material. I am looking to go on for my doctorate when I am finished because of the instructors.

Overall Experience: Love It – I really enjoy Auburn. I am in a tough curriculum, so I can't party during the week. But I enjoy going out on the weekends and working hard during the week. The campus is relatively laid back and people are friendly. You don't have to join a frat or sorority to have fun and make friends, which is a plus to me.

Parking: Parking on campus can be terrrible, unless you are a teacher or graduate student. All undergrad students get the same zone parking, and it can be impossible to find a spot during peak class hours. If you have to drive to school, schedule classes early for your best shot at parking. However, the flip side to this is the transit system is great and goes to every major off-campus housing area. It is quick and efficient.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I Never Lived on Campus – I didn't live on campus. As long as the transit system goes to your complex/house, then I would rather be off campus. It is just more fun in my opinion. If you are the bookworm type, living on campus will provide you with a lot of friends.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't get all of the financial aid I needed, so I had to manage and make due with what I had.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everything Seems Uniform – All guys and girls at Auburn University seem to wear the same thing everyday as if it were a uniform. But there are great people there.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Awesome Family Amazing!! Auburns sports program is awesome From football to swimming we have it all!!!!!!!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: People from Around the States and World – There are so many different cultures and races at AU everyone accepts you as you are!

1 College Sophomore

Transportation: Parking and Tiger Transit – Parking at Auburn University is horrible. They most definitely sell more hang tags that there are parking spaces. Tiger Transit is a good form of transportation to campus but it also takes a long time to get there.

Off-Campus Dining: Auburn, AL has a huge variety of off-campus dining establishments. Many of the restaurants are convienient to campus and some offer student discounts. There are all type of restaurants that serve different ethnicity types of food. The cost at off-campus restaurants is much more reasonably priced than the on-campus food options.

College Student

Campus Food: Never Eaten There – I have never eaten there. But I will try it soon (in fall 2011).

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Transfer Student – I have not been in Auburn yet. I am a transfer student who is starting in fall semester 2011. Thanks

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Feels Like Home – Small campus feel with all the big campus benefits. Truly is one big family

4 College Freshman

Weather: Doesn't Effect It – Mild weather but does get hot during spring and summer months

5 College Senior

Weather: 99% Amazing! 1% Horrible! Auburn experiences a wide range of weather, from tornadoes to Blue-Bird skies for weeks on end! In the Spring, Summer and Fall, storms are highly likely, followed by cooling wind and all-time epic temperatures!
Winter-time is the hardest because of the humidity from the Gulf of Mexico on top of freezing and blustery winds from the Northern states. Also, there tends to be consistent rain in the winter, but this is few and far between.

Greek Life: personally I am not involved in any way with the Greek Life at Auburn. Although many people who are involved in Greek Life are friendly and eager to become acquainted, there lies a very exclusive, and often rude, enclave that would rather ridicule people for not having the same beliefs/style than be understanding and friendly. Not a big fan.

5 College Senior

Academics: Health Promotion: Social Health Care Specialization – The Health Promotion Program at Auburn University is a top-notch program. With nationally recognized professors, such as Dr. Bruce Gladde, Dr. Daniel Blessing and Dr. Peter Grandjean (Now at Baylor- Waco, Texas)- Auburn's Health Promotion program offers classes in Exercise Technology, Health Promotion in the Work Place and challenging internships within the school, as well as at East Alabama Medical Center's Cardiology Department(Which was my internship). The workload is entirely do-able and highly achievable, but requires a lot of dedication to fully gain and understand it. The facilities at Auburn University are sometimes a bit behind par, but are more than adequate with state of the art imaging equipment (DEXA) and new clinical exercise testing equipment.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most of the nightlife in Auburn is open to students of all ages, though drinks and some clubs require to be over 21. There are many close to campus, along with the local frat houses always having concerts and parties going on all the time.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Hot Chicks No Dicks – You’ll find all sorts of guys at Auburn: city boys, ravers, rednecks, and lots of good ol’ country boys, too. The girls are pretty much just Southern belles. They are incredibly hot, for the most part. If you aren’t from around here, it’ll take a little while to get used to the accent.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Auburn is a great school. There is a good balance of social interactions and working. Classes are difficult, this is one of the hardest schools to get an A in, but they are manageable. But Auburn does a great job of making sure their graduates are well prepared and that they can find jobs.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Tiger Transit – Auburn provides a bus system that shuttles students in major areas off campus to the school. There is usually a bus every 15 minutes and it does not require purchasing any extra passes.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is a good variety of dining on campus, however, the food is expensive and of poor quality. The school requires you to purchase a dining cards. $950 if on campus, $350 if off campus. If we weren't required to purchase a plan I would never eat on campus.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I honestly don't think they ever give anyone a full ride unless you are an athlete. But all the smart people need to be rocket scientist to even get full tuition, which I don't think is right at all.

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.
