I loved my teachers and their style. They make an effort to know the students and assist in the best way possible. However, administration does not care about us. For example, they do not make an effort to keep us updated on changes in our financial aid, resulting in charges on student accounts we are unaware of.
The school is way too expensive for all that they have to offer, the food is awful and the staff members suck. Don’t expect to make friends here easily because most people are rude for no reason and have bad attitudes. Campus life is dead and there’s not much to do here. Don’t come here if you want to actually enjoy your college experience.
This is a college that does the bare basics and feels completely detached. There are barely any clubs or orgs and the few that exist are hard to join. The school is also old and outdated. And generally everybody scoots in and out of the campus making it extremely difficult to make friends. Overall, I would rate this an average if not below average college. I can’t say that I would recommend it. Hoping to transfer out sometime in the future to UAB which is SO MUCH better.
Auburn University Montgomery hasn’t proved to be as good as it tries to show on the internet, there is no campus life, the number of students are less as compared to campus size, the housing apartments aren’t renovated and you don’t have any activities to do. Montgomery is a very dry city with slow life and no point of interest of students.
With are school being so small, there is probably five different Greek groups. I see them recruit around campus sometimes, but it's more like they are looking for people instead of people flocking to them.
It is bad because they school is right off of the highway and anybody could come on the campus.
The Greek life at school is not big or known really, you barely so the Greeks or their parties, if there is any.
When I came to school I thought that my financial aid had been distributed and it hadn't so when I went to financial aid they just keep giving me the run around on what I needed to do. But eventually I got it taken care of.
My tips would be to make sure you get it done weeks in advance
We have some teachers that are good people, but NOT good teachers. They talk, but never teach.
Greeks do not have their own houses, so it is hard for them to function like Greeks do at bigger schools. The Greeks at AUM are only given a single room to meet in, so that makes it hard for them to become larger and as involved as they might want to be.
I haven't had a great experience at AUM. I have had terrible advising, there aren't many social events, and classes are difficult.
The only good bars are the high-class expensive bars downtown and in Old Cloverdale. Underage nightlife is awful and the few places they can get into are expensive. There are rarely any parties but they are usually good when they happen.
There's no where to hide from the rain. If it's raining and you don't have an umbrella you WILL get soaked
You really need a car if you are going to be at AUM.
There is no other way to use your meal plan. Trust me I have tried. There are two places you can use it. 1 is the cafeteria and 2 is our coffee bean shop. The food is very limited. We have pizza, salad, chicken, bean bowls, and subs. They have pre-rapped stuff from Walmart, but it is WAY overprices. With most of our options you can order it “the way you like it” but after a few weeks you have tried everything on the menu and every combination. We are trying to work on improving this.
