Off-Campus Dining: There are a few restaurants near campus but non really give you a student discount. Most of them are expensive so I don't eat in them very often. There are more eateries that have better prices they are just further out. Our favorite hang out is the Waffle House, the prices are okay and the food is good. After a night out the groups normally meet there.

Transportation: the parking at auburn university in auburn is awful. you have to show up an hour before your class start just to drive around and stalk the people leaving and even then the parking spot that you get isnt ideal.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football season is an obvious plus. Tailgating is fun and friendly. There are several options for athletic involement.

Off-Campus Housing: Great and Not So Great – Obviously there are great off campus housing apartments and houses as with any school. Many of them have great parking and are still on the campus transit system route. There are some that parking is terrible, cars get towed even if they are visiting a resident, and rent is ridiculous just because they are close to campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Auburn's transit system is great. There is never a worry about who is going to drive after a night out because the night bus will pick up and drop off at any hour and there is no extra charge. The people are fun to party with but also take studies seriously.

Diversity: There is a great amount of diversity on Auburn's campus. I'm pretty sure the majority is white, but I see different ethnicities everywhere I look. Not to mention the clubs and organizations that have to do with different cultures and religions and such. Also, once a semester there is a fair of sorts on the concourse where booths are set up with different countries and students from the countries talk about their heritage.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Variety in Food and Places to Eat – There are many places to eat on campus. There is a great variety from fast food to sit down. If I get bored at the Student Center, I just walk to Foy or to the Village dining hall. It's amazing to have a Starbucks on campus.

5 College Freshman

Academics: College of Education Is Very Close Knit and Helpful – I am in the College of Education at Auburn University and it is a great college. All of my advisers and teachers have been exceptional and helpful. Any question I have had has been answered before I've had to ask it. I feel like I belong in this college.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Its a Great Place – Lots of school spirit, very friendly, easy to make friends, beautiful campus

Weather: Weather is typical for alabama, cold in the winter, rainy, hot in the summer

Parking: There is not near enough parking for the amount of students and traffic can be hectic

Party Scene: Security Shuttle – Auburn University has developed a wonderful transportation system that allows students to feel comfortable and safe. Upon orientation students are provided with the number to the security shuttle. The shuttles availablity is wonderful during all dark hours. It will drop students off at any on campus facility. Recently Auburn has also added the Toomer 10 which is also a security shuttle for those students living off campus. The wait time varies are Friday and Saturday nights are very busy, though usually the wait isn't unreasonable. Unforfunetly the shuttle does not run during football game days. Otherwise it is a great option for students to avoid walking alone at night or intoxicated driving.

Off-Campus Housing: Many Choices – There are many different types of off campus residences. Some are expensive but I would say you get what you pay for. You won't find many places close to campus that allow pets however.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Charming to Look at. The campus has many buildings that are charming. They have a nice way of blending the old with the new and not letting anything just seems out of place.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Very Down to Earth Atmosphere. I love Auburn and how all of the students have such pride in the school! The professors are nice and willing to help as long as you put forth the effort in coming to talk to them. They would much rather help you succeed than see you fail.

Overall Experience: College Life Is Making Me Into an Adult – So far college life has been an experience that I will never forget. I have had a lot of growing pains because my mom is not here to do my thinking for me. I'm learning that my education is very important for my future and there is no one to make me get it, I have to get it for myself.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: No Need for Cars – Transportation is good because there are tran buses that run about every 15 minutes.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The ground security can be very costly if you don't park where you should. The first offense is a $25.00 ticket and the next one is a boot on your tire, which will cost you $125.00 to have it taken off.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: in case you didnt know Auburn in still located in the heart of the deep south, Alabama. that being said many kids here come from areas/families who didnt make exposure to different cultures/ethnic groups a priority and it shows once they arrive on campus. coming from an afro-american student the interaction between racial lines is sorely lacking, which leads to students 'sticking to their own' more often than not and with the racial breakdown of AU as is it, minorities... good luck.

College Freshman

Greek Life: GO GREEK OR GO HOME – Greek life IS life at Auburn. w/ minimal non-greek/greek socializing non-greeks will have a hard time finding fun (that isnt at a downtown bar) on a regular basis. also the greek process seems the hardest on the females who need to arrive a week early to begin the 1st semester pledge process. Also many guys end up going greek 2nd semester for the socializing that seems so hard to find as a non-greek.
& yes, the hottest girls are greek.... which expectedly leads to guys joining the frat scene in droves.

Party Scene: Drunk Bus – The greatest thing invented was the security shuttle, nicknamed the drunk bus. It will take you anywhere on campus for free. It comes up to toomer's corner, literally 5 steps from a bar. We have 3 or 4 bars that everyone goes to. We have a hookah bar right in the downtown, and an oxygen bar about 15 minutes away.We don;t have any clubs but La Vela, the largest club in the US is a short drive away.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We're Alright. Each team has its own set of devout followers, along with the people who go every now and then. We have our annual rivalry match against Alabama, but our football team has been declining, it is suspected to improve within the next year or so. Our swim team has won the past 7 years in the nationals and the past 13 years in the SEC. We do not have a male soccer team but our female soccer team is pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Pretty Much Everything – There is practically anything and everything within 5 minutes of campus. North college st is home to world famous Toomer's Lemonade. There is also a chik-fil-a, pizza hut, starbucks, soup shop, sandwich shop, sushi and lots more a stone's toss away. Meals here can be about 5 bucks each so you get your money's worth. We have the major franchises along with some hometown favorites such as Momma Goldberg's.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food Is Good – The student center offers a variety of dining places. Overall I think they are all good.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Is Safe – I have never felt unsafe walking around auburn's campus. There are always many students around so there is no need to feel threatened.

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.
