THE AUBURN POLICE DEPARTMENT BOTH ON AND OFF CAMPUS ARE CRAZY ABOUT GIVING TICKETS!! If you park in the wrong zone/spot even for 30 seconds during restricted hours your car will either have a ticket on the windshield, a boot on the tire, or be the newest member of the Auburn Impound Lot. Likewise, if you run a yellow light, cut off pedestrians, or speed at any rate, you will have a ticket faster than you can blink. Moral of this story: Do exactly as you are supposed to do when driving.

College Experience – My experience at Auburn has been awesome. Its a laid back college that stills demands your best. I wouldnt choose another college.

There is good diversity on the campus of Auburn University. The male to female ratio is close to 1:1. Religion diversity is high and is the economical background. But the political beliefs are not very diverse, there are not many democrats.

Guys & Girls:
People Dress Comfortably – The girls at Auburn are very attractive, but they dress in sweats and comfortable clothes most of the time and do not try to show off their looks.
College Junior 2011-11-10T21:03:57Z
The Village Is the Best – The dorms in the Hill are the oldest and the ones in the Quad aren't much better. The Village halls are only a few years older and have an apartment style to them which is nice.

Alabama Heat – It's the south so it definitely does get a little bit hotter than other places. It stays hot for a while and may not feel like fall weather until mid November or so.

Riding Tiger Transit – The transportation is convenient. It's paid for i your tuition. It brings and takes students from all over to and from the campus. Buses come to set stops every 10-15 min. so it's very convenient throughout the day.

Living on Your Own – Off campus housing has both its pros and cons. Although it isn't convenient as living on campus it's still close by and the prices are reasonable depending on where you go. For all parking there must be a parking pass. The area is pretty safe but you always want to be mindful of possibilities.Off campus housing is located close to the campus so it's easy to find.

I don't know that many people that do drugs, but to get alcohol is pretty easy.

Guys & Girls:
Girls and Guys – There are a lot of pretty people at Auburn. Most people are healthy and attractive. Everyone pretty much looks the same though. A lot of frat boys and sorority girls.

Campus Living – If you don't apply early, then you most likely wont live on campus.

WAR EAGLE! Everyone knows the south is big for its sports and football, but you won't find love for your school anywhere like you will at Auburn. Auburn has the strongest school spirit around. Everyone is part of a family and feels it so deeply it will bring you to tears at the football games. The traditions are amazing and the Auburn pride is so strong it can overcome any loss.

Dorms? Ha. That'd Be a Nice Option. There is hardly any space for students to live on campus. Between the Quad, the Village, and the Hill, there's only room for a few thousand students. The entire freshmen class won't fit on campus. That's right: freshmen aren't guaranteed housing. I love Auburn, but I'll be honest, I've never heard of another school say that to freshmen. Many are forced to get off campus dorms or apartments. There are THOUSANDS of apartments and student housing around town because most students don't live on campus. If you're Greek, you most likely have a frat house or hall in the Village you can stay at sophomore year or above. If you're not, however, you have to come up with your own housing. Living off campus isn't terrible though, I actually really like it. It's hard sometimes, but you get a better room that comes furnished for a MUCH cheaper price than if you were paying the outrageous cost of room and board. It sounds tough but in the end, living off campus is worth it and is a better choice! If you have your heart set on living on campus at your college, either act fast to ensure a spot or find a place that guarantees freshmen housing.

Cute College Town! There's a lot to do around Auburn - there's plenty of boutiques for shopping and places to eat. You can find any kind of food within walking distance or a short drive. You have to travel a bit to get to big time shopping like department stores, but for students the area is great. If you go out looking for something to do, you'll find it because there's ALWAYS something!

Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – Besides the typical robbery that you will at every college, Auburn is pretty safe and feel comfortable walking around campus at night and day.

Horrible, Enough Said – Parking is a nightmare. Good luck getting a spot after 8am. Off-campus parking is extortionate and not even convenient.
College Senior 2011-10-11T18:18:01Z
Lovely on the Plains – Auburn's weather is amazing. It has four seasons, unlike my home on the coast, and the sky can take some amazing images. I spend countless hours outside playing, reading, studying, or running. When it rains, it pours, but that doesn't happen too often.

As necessary as it is to have a car at Auburn, the parking situation can be really frustrating. I received a ticket for leaving my car in a spot for five minutes to get something from a friend's room on campus, and had a ticket when I returned. If you can, it's best to take advantage of the Transit bus system because it's easy, convenient, and doesn't give you tickets.

Enthusiastic About Business – The College of Business at Auburn offers some basic, but applicable courses for their students, and these seem to be led by highly intelligent and relatable teachers. Their enthusiasm is very inspiring to me and I constantly find myself wanting to learn more. However, sometimes this enthusiasm causes my teachers to jump around more than is best suited for me. It does not halt my learning capabilities, but it definitely slows them down.

Auburn is known for its football team. Gameday saturdays in Auburn are amazing and its not likely that Auburn has a lot of bad seasons due to the popularity of the school and its athletic program!
College Senior 2011-10-10T14:37:38Z
The off campus housing is great as well. The apartments that are off campus are not too far and if you dont feel like driving there is a transit that can take you to and from school each and every day!

The access of computers on campus is great. There are available computers to use in probably every major school affiliated building on campus, especially the library!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
