Fraternity parties are always a good place for Greeks. You can pretty much find a party at a fraternity house every night of the week. SkyBar is fun when it's not Wednesday and high schoolers are there. Quixote's is always a good time, and 1716 is a good chill place. House parties are generally avoided by the time you're 20 and can find your way into a bar.

It's a very small town. I'm from Auburn originally, and it's a very beautiful and unique town atmosphere. There is a community college nearby called Southern Union. There isn't a ton of things to do because this is a relatively small city, but there are fun bars and lots of nice places to go to hang out!

Varsity sports are always fun. Football is huge here since it's an SEC school. Everyone loves the spirit and tailgaiting atmosphere of game day. Intramural sports are also really popular and are a great opportunity for everyone to get involved.

The library is really big and has any book you could ever imagine wanting. There's plenty of space to study and meet up with groups for classes. The student center is new, very nice, and spacious. The athletic facilities are also pretty nice.

It's pretty good, but there aren't enough restaurants available in the student center. I only eat at two of them. There needs to be a more healthy variety of choices.

Public transportation to campus is pretty reliable, but I never take it. The Tiger Transit routes take a long time, and you end up having to leave for class really early. The parking on campus sucks, though, so this is basically the only option.

The library is big but could be better. It's just one big social gathering there-if you really need to study, try going to a coffee shop downtown instead!

All the facilities on Auburn's campus are suitable for their purposes. Some building could use some work, but there is always construction going on so I am sure these buildings will get a face-lift in time.

The food in the student center is decent, but the hours are really odd sometimes.

Frat houses are great for parties, just be careful what you drink. Bars are 19-and-up.

The dorm life is an easy way to get involved around campus. None of them are awful, besides Boyd on the Hill.

Health & Safety:
There is always a lot of security around campus. The campus police are always around if you feel unsafe. At night, we have the Security Shuttle, which will pick you up from wherever you are and take you to your destination. There are hardly ever any known crimes on campus or around the town.

Football is huge! A day or two before the game, people start setting up to tailgate. Intramural sports are fun. They have different leagues so anyone can play.

I love the atmosphere of the town. Auburn University is the town, which makes the campus feel a lot smaller. The best things to visit or do is an Auburn football game. Tuskegee and Troy are close by, and some people come here for the weekend.

There are some parties at frat houses, but they are mainly during football season. The bars downtown are fun, but you have to be older than 19. SkyBar is most people's favorite.

Off-campus housing is pretty convenient because Tiger Transit can pick you up. For your first year, I would live on campus just to get the complete Auburn experience. Also, it is easier to make friends living on campus.

Greek life is present at Auburn, but it is not a big deal. If you want to go to frat party, you can get in if you are not Greek.

The dorms in the Quad are great. They're right in the middle of campus, so you always know what's going on. I plan on living here all four years. If you don't want to walk a long ways to class, avoid the Hill.

I came to Auburn because of the engineering program, and all of my teachers have been really good. They meet with students who need help and are always willing to answer any questions we might have.

The food on campus is pretty nice. There's a wide variety, so you can find something you like rather quickly. My favorite place to go is Niffer's. It's a burger place, and my goal is to try every single burger on the menu during my fours years here at Auburn. The dining halls are nice, but they can get old real quick.

Varsity sports are definitely a big deal. Here in the South, we don't mess around when it comes to our college football. We love to support all our teams, even when the season isn't going so great. We also have quite a few intramural sports. Some are more popular than others, but they're a lot of fun. I've gotten the chance to meet some amazing people by participating in intramurals.

Auburn is definitely a college town. The town itself has a captivating charm, which is what drew me to Auburn in the first place. There are cute boutiques downtown and random trinket shops. Montgomery and Atlanta are your best bets for shopping if you want a real mall. However, there is a mall in Opelika that isn't terrible if you just want some basics. Don't go to Columbus at night-it is sketchy.

Parties on campus are super fun and crazy during football season. You have to be 19 to get into the bars here in Alabama, so that is kind of unfortunate. However, they are all really fun once you can get in. Bourbon Street is really fun on Thursday nights. SkyBar and In Italy are also great picks. SkyBar has something for all kinds of people to enjoy. Clubbing in Atlanta isn't too far either!

The dorms are pretty nice. The Quad is so convenient to everything, but the smallest out of the Hill, Extension, and the Village. The Hill dorms are a little larger than the Quad but older. The Village is the newest and consists of four bedrooms, a living room, and kitchenette.

Public transportation is readily available around town with Tiger Transit buses, security shuttles, and friends' cars. Walking is the best exercise and perfect because Auburn's campus has buildings located within ten minutes of each other.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
