There are not very many choices in terms of good food (if you're from wealthier neighborhoods from your hometown). The choices they do offer do not offer very good food and it is normally overpriced.

hard to find house parties and all the frat guys are douches

Auburn has nice computer labs, and wifi is available almost anywhere. I had a freak issue with my laptop, and I took it to the library where they have a tech help desk. You can print things out at the library or at CopyCat. You have to pay for copies at CopyCat. A guy fixed my computer for me in less than five minutes(for free!). You should probably bring your own computer, though. I'm sure you could do without one, but a lot of assignments are online. It's just easier and more convenient to have your own.

There are plenty of things to do in and around Auburn. The locals are friendly, the food has variety, and shopping is nearby. The only thing I'm not fond of is how packed the town gets on football game weekends. Most fans are great, but some can be annoying.

I've never seen anyone do drugs, but I've heard of people using adderall or smoking weed. A lot of people drink alcohol and party, but there are plenty of people on campus that don't. The pressure you feel depends on the type of people with whom you surround yourself.
College Junior 2012-10-09T15:02:20Z
I've never seen drugs as a problem at Auburn. I know that some people do smoke pot, but anything harder than that I've never gotten wind of. Even the smoking is very easy to avoid if it isn't what you want to be around.

Some of the off-campus options look glamorous and really well done, but the management tends to be iffy. The smaller places that don't look as fancy tend to have the better upkeep, prices, and management staff. On-campus is expensive, but convenient.

Drinking is pretty popular, and smoking is "eh", There is a new smoking ban on campus whereby they are attempting to outlaw tobacco usage on campus grounds gradually. It isn't super effective. Drugs are attainable, but the police would do better to bust the cocaine users than to harass the pot-smokers. The smokers are generally a community-involved, happy bunch.

Could have more buses, but overall really good transport.

There are plenty of places to eat on campus. Places include Papa John's, chick-fil-a, starbucks, chicken grill, and more. If you live off campus and do not need to eat at these places very often, you can always use it to buy some caffeine to help you stay awake to study or to buy you a snack between classes.

Most of the professors work with students better when you visit during office hours. Popular study areas include the library and the student center. The registration process can be overwhelming. You must know your registration date.

It all depends on whether or not you are by yourself. Most of the off campus places include restaraunts like mellow mushroom, buffalo wild wings, five guys, etc. It can be really expensive or you can go cheap and share some wings.

We have security shuttles that run at night so you do not have to walk alone at night. Most underage night life is in the middle of the week. On the weekends, bars are mostly 21 and up. There is always something to do around here (bands, parties, etc).

Weather varies on people's preferences, but down in Auburn, you have your fair share of rain and wind, but plenty of sunshine. More often than not, you find people sitting out on the grass (anywhere on campus) and reading, doing homework, or taking a nap. You also find a huge prevalence of Ultimate Frisbee, which tempts plenty of players to play in bare feet on the nice, soft grass.

During school on campus, there's really no "drug scene." However, since college sports are a huge deal, especially college football, the "dry campus" turns into one with all kinds of fans holding beer bottles with coolies (spelling might not be right) and coolers full of beer for tailgating purposes. During this time, it becomes very easy to be invited to any of the tailgating groups and have a drink or two.

Public transportation is definitely good around campus, but there are some things that could be improved. The transit system during the day sometimes takes longer than it should and that makes it difficult to get to class if you're running late. But if you're on campus at night there are transits going off-campus or a van system on-campus that you can call and they'll come get you wherever you are and take you wherever you need. That's always convenient!
College Junior 2012-09-20T16:27:20Z
There is a place for everyone on campus. Whether you're wanting green grass to lie in, a vast quiet library open 24/7, or a great place to eat with a view of Jordan-Hare Stadium, you will find a perfect place to enjoy your day on campus however you choose to spend it.
College Junior 2012-09-20T16:24:13Z
Auburn has a mix of really old, but beautiful and newer facilities. The campus is gorgeous.

Health & Safety:
Continuous coverage by security assists in providing safety. Surveillance monitors, emergency call boxes, lighting, and are all provided. The campus is not spread out, so its easy to get from one place to another quickly. In the year I've been there, I have felt very safe.

We mostly have just random places to eat instead of the traditional dinning halls.
College Sophomore 2012-09-16T16:21:42Z
There are several food options for even the pickiest eater. But if you live on The Hill, don't eat in Terrell Dining Hall. The food sucks and the workers there are not very friendly.

Before I came here, I had heard how strict parking was and how you can never find a spot. I thought people were exaggerating, but I have experienced it first-hand. I have only been attending Auburn for a month now and I have FIVE parking tickets ($50 each) automatically billed to my e-bill. Before this, I had no tickets on my record - a clean slate. It doesn't matter if you try to park in the correct places. You can barely see any signs, and Parking Services are not understanding. I went in there crying after I received my fifth ticket (and a boot on my car) and they still made me pay for it. Good Luck finding a place anywhere around here!

Need More – There are not a lot of opportunities for financial aid that I have found. It's disappointing because college is so expensive!
College Sophomore 2012-09-11T04:12:06Z
The shuttles here are free of charge! They are constantly running, and they even have a shuttle each Friday that drives out to the local Walmart. They also have night shuttles for after 6pm that you can take if you can't or don't want to walk around campus at night. I, personally, find no problem walking around (I do it all the time!). There are certain people who aren't, shall I say, stable enough to walk around easily. Especially on the weekends.
College Sophomore 2012-09-11T04:08:58Z
It's All Relative – I quite enjoy the food Auburn offers! The only thing I would add is more opportunity for healthy foods. A lot of the sandwiches that seem healthy have a TON of calories, but they are still delicious and better than getting fast food every day. I am very much satisfied with the dining here. It's not really like cafeteria food, it is more like a food court experience.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
