A lot of options for housing depending on what you want. Apartment v. Townhouse, Pet v. No pets, Single v. Roommates, Furnished v. Unfurnished, and proximity to campus are just some of the options to consider. All of these factors will also contribute to price, the largest factor is proximity to campus--places closer to campus are way more expensive.

There are a lot of options all over campus for food. Healthy options are everywhere. There are also many different types of food, from Chinese to Mexican they have it all. The price is a little steep for what you get, but not too bad. They do need to either add more options or increase staffing during high times because sometimes it can take 30 minutes to get food.

There are so many academic programs at Auburn anyone can find a niche were they can fit. Campus life is big and everything in the area is pretty much centered around the campus and students. The only negatives are that a lot of the academic buildings need work and the school's focus seems to be on the sports facilities.
College Senior 2013-09-30T22:06:06Z
There is a lot of nightlife in the area for everyone. Parties are all around campus every weekend and the bars are within walking distance of campus. Transportation is also available on the night security shuttle and off-campus buses. Only thing we lack is the club scene.

The process to apply for Elementary Education is lengthy. You must complete at least 40 hours, have a cleared background check, have fingerprints submitted, etc. The application must include your current GPA, major GPA, a plan of study, a resume and cover letter, hours completed, pre-teaching/observation hours, etc. Once the application is submitted and approved, you sign up for an interview time. Upon your interview date, you are given a couple of prompts to choose from that you must right at least a 2 page essay for and then you interview with faculty advisors. Next comes the waiting game and in a couple weeks you find out if you were 1 of the 25 to be accepted for the next semester.

There is a decent variety of places to go hang out. Only problem is that it's a small town and not a whole lot stays open for very late.

It has been great, but my specific major requires an extra semester and fees that aren't covered by my given scholarship.
College Junior 2013-09-15T15:52:07Z
I mean it's Greek life. Not my thing, it's a little too squealy and phony for me.

Guys & Girls:
Overall, I would say that we have a true family at this school. For the most part, students are very friendly and willing to get to know you.
College Senior 2013-09-09T02:20:53Z
Computers available for student access in every building. Very rarely do I have a problem with accessing one or with completing my work on one. The wif-fi in the dorms is generally great.
College Senior 2013-09-09T02:18:08Z
Excellent lab facilities and research opportunities. Low student:teacher ratios. Rigorous but manageable coursework.
College Sophomore 2013-09-05T03:52:16Z
Guys & Girls:
The girls are generally friendly, even the sorority sisters.
College Sophomore 2013-09-05T03:50:07Z
The older dorms have small rooms, are rather old and show it. If you live in The Village, you have a small private bedroom in a suite and share a bath with only 1 other person. The Village is very nice with a food court next to it.

I mean for the most part its diverse. However, 85% of student body is Caucasian, which is WAY above the US national average! Acceptance wise, diversity is not even a problem. There is literally something for everyone here. Every other issue here is about the same as well. Again the only lacking thing is the overwhelming majority of Caucasians.

Health & Safety:
Pretty safe for the most part. Can't enter dorms without keycards, security walks the dorms at night. Security shuttle runs from 6:00pm-6:00am to ensure students get to their destination safely. Rather effective police presence, and for the most part pretty well guarded campus (for it being so large and open).

Parking permit are outrageously expensive ($160+). It is quite difficult to find a spot in a given parking lot during regular class hours. You have to arrive very early and perhaps search multiple parking lots before you will find a spot. If you are not granted "proximity" parking - proximal only in a relative manner of speaking, as in it is still far away from pretty much everything - then you may as well give up and just use the campus buses or plan half an hour to walk to class after driving to campus.
College Junior 2013-08-26T00:51:50Z
While on-campus parking is often very far from my classes (and very expensive for a permit), there are campus buses running during the day that are usually quite reliable. The only issue is that they don't return to the same spot more often than perhaps once every half-hour. There is also an on-call security shuttle service that runs during the off hours of the campus buses. All in all, parking and transportation are reliable but somewhat inconvenient.

Auburn is a small town with a lot of charm. The locals and school community work together contiguously and there are several things to do outside of campus, like parks, trails, and small nightlife.
Recent Alumnus 2013-08-25T22:00:15Z
Health & Safety:
The small town atmosphere and security of the town overflows onto the campus. I always feel safe walking alone or at night. Though there have been instances in the past that have made the news, I still feel comfortable and safe all of the time.

The school transit systems picks up at most neighborhoods that house majority students. It makes it easy to get to school without having to pay a lot to park on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-08-25T18:20:59Z
Because of on-campus housing, there is limited parking available for commuters. The cost to buy a parking pass is reasonable, but you need to make sure you park in the correct area. Parking Services are not afraid to give you a ticket or tow your car.
College Sophomore 2013-08-25T18:16:27Z
Auburn has a great transit system! The pick up all around Auburn and drop you off by the student center. The only inconvenience is that some have many stops, so you could wait a while to be picked up.

Auburn has a White majority, but everyone is very accepting of each other. Auburn is also one of the most conservative schools in the country.
College Freshman 2013-08-24T21:15:15Z
About 35 percent are Greek affiliated. It is about 85 percent white.
College Freshman 2013-08-24T21:12:35Z
I live in the best location - the Quad. I am right in the middle of campus and close to my classes.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
