I'm a born and raised Yankee from New York. I'll be honest and tell you I've had a lot of issues making girl friends, but I think it's because of the way I am. Girls aren't mean to you just because you say you're from the north, in fact, they usually think it's cool to meet someone from so far away. Only once have I had a girl be snippy because of my upbringing: "You think that skirt is cute because you're from New York, but you better learn real fast that us southerners don't think it is."
Obviously, there are jerks everywhere, but the majority of girls at Auburn will like you depending on how northern you are and act. Are you loud, brash, quick to curse, and confrontational? If so, you probably won't get along with them so well, just like me. I had a ton of friends back north because they can handle it, but southern women just can't. However, if you are laid back, more quiet, chill, and can adjust to different cultures easily, you'll be just fine. If not though, I'd advise against it. Before I came to Auburn, I didn't realize how Yankee I was because everyone from my world was just like me. So just evaluate yourself first and how good you are with change, then make your decision.

Good luck! :)
You commented on one of my posts earlier about being from New York. I have a confrontational side about me but I am also pretty quiet most of the time. I totally get what you're saying about being from a different "world" so you didn't realize you were such a Yankee. I go to High Point University now and I learned that quickly too. I also really hate the whole snobby, bragging thing that a lot of girls at my school do. Is it really that bad though? And overall do you still like the school though?
Ive lived in the deep south all my life and i love northerners and i cant wait to go to auburn, so no worries!
My roommate was from DC, and like missivorykeys said, it all depends on how extreme you are. Southern hospitality is amazing, and while some southern girls can be very honest and quick to judge, most of us are open to people who are different, and the southern experience is always an awesome one to have! :)

Well, there's no question about it-students at Auburn look pretty good. And if socializing and drunken revelry is just as important to you as studying, then Auburn may be right for you. Guys and girls both generally tend to take good care of themselves by working out. On top of good looks, students at Auburn are also friendly and outgoing.
Students say that there's a variety of types of people at Auburn, so there's a person for everyone here. The friendly atmosphere makes it easy to meet others. If you're looking for a relationship or just a one-night stand, then you can make it happen if you try. Most students lean toward relationships, but there are plenty of hookups that go on.
