There is a lot of walking done on campus, but when you come on your tour you find that out. Parking tickets are expensive so always park in your zone.
College Student 2013-12-12T21:54:41Z
Auburn is a great city. The only problem that people may have is parking, but other than that it is fine.
College Student 2013-12-12T21:53:34Z
Auburn is a great school. There is so much to choose from and there's always help if you need it. I couldn't have chose a better university.
College Student 2013-12-12T21:52:21Z
Auburn has great athletic teams. There's enough to for everyone to fit in.
College Student 2013-12-12T21:51:04Z
There are plenty of computers available around campus. So there isn't a problem printing or doing research.

Some days it's beautiful and sunny outside and not too hot or cold but there are just as many days when it is miserably cold or hot. That's Alabama for ya!

We have many options of yummy food. But not enough options for healthy or organic foods.

Guys & Girls:
Students in general (male and female) tend to be pretty attractive and healthy. Also tend to be hardworking and friendly.

Academically my school is great. However it is much harder to get an A in your classes compared to other colleges. But it's pretty obtainable to get an A.
College Junior 2013-12-12T18:34:42Z
The professors expect far too much from students in order to give them an A in the class.

There needs to be more financial aid given out to students that isn't only targeted to special people who excell at academics, athletics, or are just from foreign countries. There are plenty of hard working students who could really use some financial aid who are the smartest or brightest crayon in the box but are just as hardworking if not more.

My personal group of friends has a pretty homogenous view of diversity and acceptance. But the diversity on campus as whole is lacking, especially the acceptance of it.

Health & Safety:
I feel safe on campus walking alone at night. I just wish there were more lights.
College Junior 2013-12-12T18:28:22Z
There is not nearly enough parking on or near campus!! It is what I am most frustrated about my college.

So the hill is the worst of the dorms, but honestly it's not that bad. The rooms are a great size and the dorm is really old, but not gross or anything. It's definitely a 5 or 10 extra minutes to get to the center of campus, but it's not too bad. The Quad is in the perfect location, but the rooms are extremely tiny. The Village is amazing, as is South Donahue, but both are very expensive. I would recommend living in the dorms for your freshman year, because that's where you make your first friends and it makes it so convenient.

Guys & Girls:
I would say the girls are usually really pretty and wear oversized t-shirts and nike shorts or leggings on a usual basis, but dress preppy when they're going out. Guys dress preppy most of the time and they're pretty good looking. There are also a lot of dorkier, less attractive students, but honestly, school is pretty attractive :). There are definitely long-term relationships, but if you're looking for a hook-up scene, that's definitely big here, especially with the Greeks.
College Sophomore 2013-12-09T20:54:48Z
I can't even describe to you how much I love Auburn. Everything about it is wonderful and it actually feels like a family, even though there are so many students. It's so perfect. I never want to leave.
College Sophomore 2013-12-09T20:53:51Z
There's a ton to do here, but still with a small town feel. There are many bars, shops, and restaurants, so you can get away from campus without actually going far. Everywhere is pretty much walking distance away from campus, so it makes it very convenient. Auburn really is a family, and the locals are great.
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T22:27:05Z
Campus isn't really that strict. I've never pushed the system too far, though, so maybe I'm not one to answer this, but for the most part, the RAs in the dorms aren't going to have a problem with a little noise as long as it doesn't get out of hand. Cops are extremely hype on parking and giving tickets, but not so much about drinking as long as you aren't like flaunting your beer in your hand.
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T22:24:21Z
So I don't actually know anything about the computer labs or anything, because I have my own computer, but I hear they're great. My friends use them all the time for things that don't work on their laptop. The internet is sometimes a little shaky, but it's gotten a lot better recently and I haven't had any problems with the speed or connection. You probably also want to have a printer or a friend with one, because it's just such a hassle to have to go print something from the library and pay for it.
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T22:21:56Z
I'm in a sorority here and it's honestly the best choice I've made. I know I could have friends and have fun if I hadn't joined one, but it makes making friends so much easier, you have more to do, you have more opportunities open to you on campus, etc. It's amazing. We don't necessarily look down upon GDIs (non-Greeks), but just saying, most if not all of my friends are in sororities or fraternities. It's just a lot more convenient to be friends with Greeks because we're doing things with each other all the time. I've met some great non-Greeks, but it's easier to be friends with Greeks because we all have something huge in common. You can definitely get into parties if you're a non-Greek girl, but you might feel awkward, because everyone there will be in greek life and will ask you what sorority you're in. Fraternities have pretty nice houses on Old and New Row, and the sororities live in a designated hall in the Village. We have more leadership opportunities available to us, because most of the time one of your sisters or fraternity friends will be in the organization already, so they can put in a good word for you. I love being in Greek life.

So I don't have a car here and I'm kind of glad I don't. It's such a hassle. Parking permits are way overpriced and the Auburn traffic cops should probably be ranked best in the nation at giving tickets. Literally you'll park in the wrong spot for five minutes and you'll already have a ticket. I don't know how their so on top of their jobs, but it's incredible. You don't need a car to get around on campus, but I sometimes wish I had one so I had the opportunity of going farther off campus than just downtown Auburn.

Health & Safety:
I have absolutely never felt uncomfortable or afraid on campus. Auburn really is a family and it makes for an absolutely amazing environment. I lock my doors and stuff out of habit, but I'm sure I would be fine if I didn't. There are blue lights around campus that you could press if you're feeling uncomfortable and then the police will come, but I've never even thought of pressing one of these, because I've never ever been afraid. I walk alone all the time and nothing shady has ever happened. It really is because Auburn is a family, and once I go out into the real world, I'm sure it'll be a shock, but for now I'm loving life here :)
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T22:12:36Z
If you don't want to drink, it's easy not to-just don't hang out on frat row for too long or you might end up feeling excluded. No one will pressure you to do anything you don't want to, which is nice, but drugs and alcohol are pretty prevalent. You won't get in trouble with the cops with drinking as long as you're not walking around on campus with an open container (except on game days) or if you're walking drunkenly back from a bar or something. They won't come on the fraternities property's so you're safe there. Drinking is definitely a big thing here, but you don't have to to have a good time. I don't drink at every party I go to and I still have a great time, because you get into the atmosphere even without drinking. People use adderall very commonly when they have tests coming up and people smoke marijuana at parties, but they're not in your face about it.

I had no problem getting a scholarship here, because my grades and SAT scores were what they were looking for. I even applied months after the scholarship deadline, but I still got a big scholarship.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
