Coming from another African-American from Atlanta, you will definitely be accepted. Honestly, diversity is not Auburn's strong suit, but the same can be said about any SEC school. I think the African-American percentage is about 7-8%.
Auburn in general is very faith-based university. You will easily be able to find friends with similar religious standards. There are also a few Christian student groups which you could take part in.
Thank you for this important answer,especially coming from someone with the same experience. Now I feel comfortable with my decision and I will continue to consider it.
Hey my fellow New Yawkah!! :P
I'm from Albany, NY and had the same question about Auburn when I was making my decision two years ago. I felt, and still do, feel out of place, but you may not at all. It honestly depends. I also considered myself a Christian Republican, but that was because for northern standards. For southern standards, however, I was not. If you are super religious and your life revolves are the Lord, then you will have no trouble making friends at Auburn. In the Bible Belt, everyone has a faith of some kind because it's almost unacceptable if you don't. You'll find some serious hypocrites who only act saved on Sunday, and I wasn't used to that in New York. But there are TONS of people who are practice what they preach and love God with all their hearts. If that's the place you'd fit in, you'll do absolutely fine. Most people are conservative Christians here, and if it's what you base your actions on, you'll do great.
Thank you! So do people judge you if you aren't 100% into religion? I respect it and certainly have christian morals and a willingness to give but I'm not all about the Bible, I would say. Would that separate me from the rest of the general population?

Unfortunately, Auburn University is not the multicultural hub that some think it is. The majority of students are overwhelmingly white, with just a fraction of minorities. Don't let that intimidate you, though. Auburn students all claim to be right at home in Auburn and praise the efforts of the administration to help diversify the University.
AU offers many different organizations that cater to almost every type of person and background. Of course, there have been incidents in the past concerning racial and political issues. You should do thorough research on these issues before deciding on a school. Tensions between majority and minority groups are not frequent at all, but cases do arise sometimes. Auburn has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, but as with any school, it's best to visit the school before making a decision to see if you think you'll be happy.
