Athletics: If there's one thing Auburn University is known for, it's our famous battle cry of "War Eagle!" during all sporting events. By far, the sport which has the largest and most spirited fan base is football where fans are referred to as "the family." Sports are a very big deal here; some people think of them as seriously as they do a religion.

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Auburn offers a nice variety of dining options that will fit nicely with any college student's budget. If you're in the mood for a burger and fries, there's Cheeburger Cheeburger and Five Guys Burgers and Fries. If you're feeling more on the fancy side, Amsterdam offers many exquisite dishes, one of which is featured on the "100 Dishes in Alabama You Should Eat Before You Die." And of course, Mommma Goldburg's Deli is a favorite among the locals. Gotta have your Momma's Love! No matter what your budget or craving, Downtown Auburn is sure to have a restaurant that suits your desires.

Campus Quality: One thing I absolutely love about Auburn is the ease I've had with making friends. I am an out of state student and I'm very shy. The Camp War Eagle session I attended over the summer really helped with me making and meeting new friends. I still keep in contact with the friends I made while I was here. If you ever apply to Auburn make sure you attend on of the Camp War Eagle sessions.

Local Area: Quite and Growing Town – Auburn a quiet and growing town. There isn't much to do off campus. The campus is beautiful in the Fall and Spring because of all the beautiful vegetation. Auburn football is very big here and if you get a chance attend on of the games

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: financial aid office was not helpful. If you don't know what ?'s to ask they will not go the extra step. I love everything about Auburn, except their Financial aid office. You will need to research stuff on your own, so be prepared.

4 College Freshman

Parking: parking permits are reasonably priced and not difficult to recieve.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Auburn is great scholastically and socially. However, they are not helpful when it comes to helping students get scholarships. You are absolutely flying solo looking for help to pay for college.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: What's a Scholarship? Auburn is not very helpful with scholarships. They just tell you each student is automatically entered but that is about it.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The Mixture – Auburn has a diverse mix of backgrounds. From redneck to hippie to gangster, you can find it here.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Black, White, and Asian – Auburn is mostly black, white, or asian. Each group seems to be known for its own area of study. Asians are typically in math oriented courses, white are a mix, and not many blacks are in "technology" courses.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There are alot of places to live off campus. Some are cheap and others are very expensive. there is a place for everyone

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Not Horrible – I've gone to the office and had some help, but for someone who doesn't know much they don't help you in a large number of options. The main help they give are loans. I did receive a small amount of a pell grant but otherwise for grant and scholarships it's been difficult trying to find everything on my own. No need to go in person to meet with someone, you can call and ask all the questions you have because that's all they will do when you get to their office.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Best School Ever – I love it here. Fall semesters are always tough with football season distracting from the studying, but always a great time. There is a lot of traditions unique to the school that makes coming here and being a part of it the best experience ever. (the warm weather compared to my N. Il. hometown is great)

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Love the Campus – All the buildings are brick making the campus beautiful to walk around. It's a tight campus making it easy to get from one side to the other without needing transportation. The history behind some of the campus makes that much more enjoyable to be a part of.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Wish There Were More – I wish there were more scholarships, I've tried to apply for whatever ones exist, but there aren't many that apply to out of state students. If a student achieves a certain ACT/SAT score, there are different levels of aid given which is good for those who can achieve that. For the ones that exist, it isn't that hard to find where to apply.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports Are Pretty Good – SO much is available to students and especially athletes because sports are a big deal in the South. Our sports events are pretty regularly attended and there is a lot of school focus on athletics. The student recreation center is pretty mediocre at present, but a STELLAR and brand new one is being built and to be finished by the fall of 2011. IM sports are good, pretty much all clubs offer to form a team and individuals can make their own if desired.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Good, Just Need More – The food is styled overall like mini-franchises spread out throughout campus and have several in major locations like the Village dining area and the Student Center. That food has good variety, only not many things are open on the weekends and for the students living close to the Student Center, people wish more was open/more was available (many times places are only open for lunch hours or until early evening). Other wise I love the food.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Auburn is pretty good about providing financial aid and telling you all your options. Definitely pay attention during camp war eagle, they tell you what you need to know and offer advice for anyone's cercumstances.

4 College Junior

Weather: It Tends to Rain a Lot. For some reason it rains a lot! As long as you have the proper gear, going to class is not bad at all. They have great transportation provided. When it snows or ices, they are pretty good about looking out for the student's safety and cancelling classes.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life is a big part of Auburn. It definitely affects the social atmosphere of the campus. Being a non-Greek I see students put a lot of time and effort into their Greek life, and most have very good things to say about it.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Auburn offered me financial aid before I even applied to come to school here. The only bad part of my scholarship is that they will not pay if I choose to move off campus, which most upperclassmen do, and I wish to live off campus next year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus Life – Everyone is very involved in their own thing. Everyone has a lot of school spirit and pride in their school. The campus is always very well taken care of and clean. People are respectful and take pride in our gorgeous campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On Campus Living – Living on campus has a lot of rules and regulations that you must follow such as signing in guests and having quiet hours.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Tiger Transit – The buses are the only way to get around campus without a car or parking permit... the routes are available to view but determining the right bus is difficult and the night bus has few vehicles and takes a while since each is in charge of half the campus and off-campus locations but otherwise a good way to get to class

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: When people mention the word drug it is mainly associated with marijuana or drugs of the sort. Although heard of they are very rare. Alcohol however is a "problem" sort of speak and is widely abused throughout campus due to the lack of enforcement. However, it is not something forced upon people.

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.
