1 College Sophomore

Parking: It is often complete chaos and it is often hard to find a spot

4 College Junior

Academics: I'm a Political Science major and I'm pleased with what I've been learning so far. It's not easy; I feel like this may be one of the hardest majors in the College of Liberal Arts. The teachers require a lot of reading from you but if you're interested in the information, it isn't that bad. They are literally pushing for you to use all of your brain and to think logically. It's easy to get help because your teachers want you to understand. Internship and job opportunities are numerous. There's no reason someone would not be able to find at least one they could apply for.

4 College Junior

Majors: I plan on having an internship before I graduate. For my major and to increase my chances of getting into law school, it would be in my best interest to have one. Auburn offers many opportunities to attain an internship, which takes away the stress of trying to find one.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my major was not hard. I just spoke with my adviser, made sure to pass all my cores and was placed in it.

4 College Junior

Majors: The political science program at Auburn is definitely rigorous. Your teachers are set out to challenge your intellect and everything you've ever said you believed in. You are pushed to think critically and logically. Everyone is very passionate in what they do and the networking is definitely there to give you the opportunity to receive an internship or future job.

3 College Junior

Academics: Believe it or not, there are many professors that want you to succeed in their class and care more about whether or not you actually learned. They are flexible with office hours and will respond to your emails if you have questions. There are some that aren't as caring but you learn to work through their class regardless.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Auburn is so amazing! For Fraternities, there are roughly 30 different ones and they are all amazing. There are 17 different sororities on campus as well. Sororities have special dorm housing (which is very nice!) as opposed to actual houses though. Auburn pretty much revolves around Greek life. It is a great way to get involved and be a part of something at Auburn. Being Greek gives you instant connections. The Greek GPA average is higher than the all student average on campus as well so studies are super important!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Auburn's police are very nice if you ever need anything from them. They are pretty strict when it comes to parking, underage drinking, or drugs. They have a no tolerance policy. There have been a few instances where the cops have been a little more relaxed on policy but usually they are not. They do understand that it is a college town though so they are not over the top strict.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Auburn provides amazing transportation. They have the Tiger Transit which run various different routes from 7am to 6 pm M-F. Wednesday through Saturday nights they run the Toomers Ten line which shuttles from various areas around town to downtown. It provides a safe way for students to get downtown and home from 10 pm to 2 am. They are also installing a Bike Share program in the Spring which will provide bikes to students to use around campus. They also provide a security shuttle which can be called any day of the week and will pick you up and take you places on campus at night time.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: From where I live, the transportation to campus is great. I know some people have more trouble with it, the further from campus they live. The bus drivers are generally a friendly bunch of people.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Just walking around campus you see a good amount of diversity. I know there are a lot of different groups for the typical minorities and everyone seems to be pretty accepting. At any rate, I haven't seen anyone being hostile towards them.

Campus Housing: Overall, Campus Housing is good. I think the RA selection is a little loose, and some of the rules are rather demeaning towards the students, but I'd definitely recommend living on campus for at least one year of school.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Huge variety, fair cost. Recommend Veggies-to-Go, Arigato Sushi Boutique, Pita Pit, Moe's BBQ.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I came to Auburn University because it has an architecture program, the campus is great, and most of the professors I have had have been close to amazing. They are available to answer questions and give you extra help with course work. Class discussion is encouraged in smaller classes and makes it worth going to class.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty intense. There are so many Greeks here. Greeks live in their own houses and we even have housing in some of the dorm halls. Some seem to actually work on whatever cause they stand for but some not so much.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: There are parties every weekend. People get drunk. It's going to happen. We luckily have the drunk bus, officially known as the Night Shuttle. It will transport you just about anywhere at night.

Technology: I would not say they are anything special. They are more than enough for you to do projects on. unless you project is doing something like hardcore video editing, which you wouldn't be using campus computers for.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I see more diversity at Auburn then i have just about anywhere else recently.

Campus Food: I love Panda Express but some places are way to expensive and the food is not worth the price you pay.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of financial aid, but the process was a bit of hassle. The university lost some of my paperwork and then when I submitted the information again they told me they couldn't read the information. Make sure you fill out the application as soon as possible as this will cause a delay in the appilcation process as well. Make sure you have all the documents properly filled out and if you are unsure what to submit always ask questions. I assumed I knew what I was doing because the application appeared straight forward but I was wrong about certain parts of the application and I was unsure of what to submit and this caused a delay in my process.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus. The campus has lighting at night and if you choose to walk the campus at night an feel unsafe there are 911 call boxes all over the campus. An alarm is sounded when you push the button and campus security will come to help. The university also provides a night shuttle to take you anywhere on campus. Always keep your doors locked and never walk around on campus alone at night.

Drug Safety: Drugs are not a big issue at Auburn University, however under age drinking is more common at parties and gatherings though. If people are doing drugs. they are usually just smoking marijuana but you don't see a lot of that. It really depends are the people who you chose to socialize with.

1 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus can big a huge nightmare and a hassle. As freshmen you do not need a vehicle, unless you have a job off campus. However if you do have a vehicle try to make it to campus at least 45 minutes before your first class because you will be searching for a parking space. Make sure you are parked in the correct parking zone as well because it is enforced on campus and the parking staff does not take it lightly. Classes are within walking distance and the campus provides a transit system and also a night shuttle that will take you anywhere on campuse.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have not been offered or seen/heard of any use of drugs on campus.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking services are serious! If you don't have a permit to park your car don't try it because you will get towed. Same thing goes for bikes. I know that sounds crazy but it's true. Don't even try it. I think parking permits are 90 bucks. However, you can park anywhere on campus without one between the hours of 5pm and 8am.

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.
