Hardly an issue. Rarely hear any issues about drugs.

Off Campus – Apartments and condos are bountiful. Plenty of nice ones and affordable ones.

Politica Sceince – No issues, plenty of other students majoring with me. Classes challeneging enough to help me progress and understand my carrer.

I feel very comfortable here at Auburn University. The atmosphere is nice and there is plenty of variety when it comes to general interests and activities. Everyone is very helpful and glad to help. War Eagle!

Unfortunately, it is very common to hear about drugs on Auburn's campus. Though a clean school for the most part, there are still easy ways to obtain them.

Reasonable Living – Most housing options are reasonable in terms of affordability and comfort. There is housing for all types of student, whether you want to be in a co-ed unit, a single-sex unit, a studio, a townhome, or even a trailer, which is extremely popular for professional students.

Football Games and Fitness – Football is really big in our town. The entire community is 100% behind our team, and people flock from all parts of the state to be a part of the support system. Fitness is also important to many of the students at our school, and there are many places to walk, run, jog, bike, etc.

Student Center – Auburn University Student Center is awesome. We have plenty of room to spread out and study, tons of places to sit and chill, and the couches and chairs are comfortable. There are several dining locations including a Papa Johns Express, a Chik-Fil-A, and a convenience store.

Technology on Campus – Auburn University provides free wifi on campus that is accessible at many locations just off campus as well. There are computer labs in most academic buildings that are available during regular hours. Printers are available in computer labs and printing can be done for a small fee. AUWiFi is relatively reliable and the speed is pretty good. The only problems I have experienced were after large storms.

Life on the Plains – Auburn is a wonderful place to live! We are close to Birmingham and Atlanta. The campus is gorgeous with old and new buildings, it is beautifully landscaped and situated right next to downtown. The best thing about Auburn is the people. We have the nicest community and we truly are one big family as cheesy as that sounds :)

The weather at Auburn University is very diverse. At the beginning of Fall semester, it is still hot and humid from the Alabama summer. However, it soon cools off to a comfortable Fall feeling around September. The Winters are somewhat cold, and Spring always feels amazing. You could honestly not ask for better weather while at Auburn.

General Campus Aesthetics – The campus pf Auburn University is by far, the most beautiful campus I have ever seen. It is always clean on campus, and even off campus, the streets are sanitary. The incorporation of trees found from all over the state help make Auburn's campus unique, and beautiful.

The professors at Auburn University are some of the best around. They are friendly, helpful, and will always go out of their way to help you out. The professors make you think for yourself, and research material on your own, instead of spoon-feeding you information in a powerpoint. They know their material, and how to present it. They want you to succeed here.

Guys & Girls:
Fraternities and Sororities – They are huge at this school. If you aren't in one, I can guarantee you'll have at least 10 friends that are. Most girls on campus are pretty attractive. They also seem to be pretty smart too. I can't speak for their common sense, but they seem to do okay in the classroom. My girlfriend from high school is here and couldn't be happier. Every night there are couples holding hands going for walks around campus. So whether you're looking for a committed relationship or just a one-night stand, you'll have no trouble finding either at Auburn.

Get the Village! The Hill and the Quad are your basic college dorms. Two to a room, two rooms share a bathroom. The Village was just put in a year or two ago and are unbelievable. They are basically on-campus apartments. And they are close to everything on campus, even the stadium. While it may cost a bit more than the other dorms or living off-campus, it's completely worth it for the comfort and convenience.

Research Profs Knowledgeable – The professors at Auburn are mostly very experienced and involved in research projects. Some are more devoted to the research than to teaching which can be a problem. These usually defer to their TAs to assist students. Others are more approachable and are interested in investing in the student to see them succeed.

Big School, Small Town – Auburn is a small community that probably would not exist without the university. Close-by Opelika is a bit larger and home to some industry. The atomosphere there more of a southern US working town with all the typical restaurant chains and retail stores. Auburn is home to a few of the same near the interstate and has a couple of charming local favorites for a burger or lemonade across the street from Samford Hall. It has a quiet and calm atmosphere for the majority of the year, but when football season rolls around, Auburn can become a crowded, bustling, and exciting place. Tailgating is a tradition that has to be experienced, with Tiger fans willing to share the products off the grill or the ice-cold beverage from the cooler. "War Eagle!" is a greeting among Auburn fans, alumni, and students alike and most will say that Auburn is the prettiest town on the plains.

The reason that Auburn. Alabama exists is because Auburn University exists. The town loves the college, and many local businesses will offer coupons on campus to students or collaborate with the campus to offer a discount to students.
There isn't a ton of stuff to do in the town itself. Lots of shopping for orange and blue things. There's a small band scene that plays at the local bars, but if you're a freshman, beware: 19 is the Alabama equivalent of 18. You can't be in a bar, even if you're not drinking, until you're 19.
The eating is great just in the downtown area. I haven't explored it much elsewhere because I'm pretty busy, but within walking distance of the campus there's a bakery, a Mellow Mushroom pizza place, a Five Guys Burgers and Fries... you will not go hungry here.
The town is small and charming. If you need a ton of stuff to do other than college, it's not the right town for you. On the other hand, if you really want to be in a city, Montgomery is less than an hour away, and Atlanta is a mere two hour drive.

We rarely have any severe weather. It may snow once during the winter months which can call for a cancellation of classes. About every other year or so we may have a tornado scare.

Greek life is very popular at Auburn and is an excellent way to meet new people. However, typically your group of friends will never extend beyond those in your own sorority. Also, dues are very expensive.

Health & Safety:
Campus Safety – Campus is very well-lit at all hours. All around campus are special security buzzers than can used to alert police if you find yourself in an unsafe situation. However, there are very few security officers on patrol.

I think I was .1 point on my GPA away from full tuition. 32 ACT with approx 3.4 HS GPA. From out of state. I got 2,500 a year and in state tuition.

Being at Auburn gives you a surreal feeling. Its just a great place to be, with great people.
Frat Life is gonna be sick, and the Co-Op program is excellent. Got me into a Full Time job @ $15.50 an hour just as a Freshman. Outstanding.

Ticket fairies will get you for anything at any time of the day. There wasn't enough parking for the Hill (where I lived Freshman year), so the parking lot would be full almost at all times. Only other parking is >1 mile away. C'mon Auburn...
Sorry, there are no reviews.
