Party Scene: If you are white conservative/moderate Republican, places like Toomer's Corner and downtown Auburn are great. It you are not, it's best to go somewhere else. There are no Black owned and operated (and few other minority owned and operated) places in downtown Auburn. Even the barber shops don't cater to those who are not white conservative/moderate Republicans. African Americans have to go along Opelika Road, northwest Auburn, or Opelika to have any kind of life. Again, Auburn is a go-along-to-get-along place, where people get very defensive, and compare the college town/campus environment to no end with Athens, Tuscaloosa, Gainesville, Baton Rouge and other cities/towns with SEC schools. Their moral superiority complex (and yes, subtle racial segregation) is what frustrates me more about Auburn than anything else. Having lived in Auburn since 2006 and having spent four years in Athens, Georgia; I most definitely prefer Athens 365/24/7. No, Athens is not always sunshine and lollipops either, but it's way ahead of Auburn. The loveliest village on the Plains still has some growing up to do.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The bar and club scene in Auburn is somewhat sparse, but students still enjoy going out to them. If you're good on the dance floor, then you'll only find a few spots that you can dance at. Tigris is one of the only clubs that offers a place to dance.

Many of the bars and clubs are similar around downtown. Only a few are open to students under 21. They also have rules pertaining to dress code and serving of liquor. However, local bands are alive and kicking in Auburn. There are many places to hear bands play, such as the Big Blue Bagel, Buffalo's American Grill, and Bodega's.
