Auburn University is home. I toured numerous schools, but no other school felt the way Auburn did. It just means more. Auburn is a great school for prospective teachers. Auburn has everything that a student could possibly want; there are hundreds of options to get students involved in student life and the athletics department continues to gain national accolades. This school values cutting edge technology, and constantly strives to improve the entire university!

Auburn combines that hometown feeling with research and development. There are a plethora of opportunities for students and parents at any level to get involved. I recommend the Student Counseling Services for those times when you're overwhelmed. Because let's face it, college is tough! You must work hard and believe in hard work to succeed here. If that's not your forte then another place may suit you, but if you're a dedicated student and willing to spend the time and money this is where you belong. From Communications to Engineers there are many, many ways to find your niche.
I feel so lucky to be at Auburn! It really is the quintessential college campus. The classes are challenging, the football games are a blast and the students are very friendly. It is a perfect blend of students that work hard but can have fun too. It is a safe campus and the town of Auburn is so cute! My professors have been very helpful and I already am doing a practicum doing research as a freshman! If you haven't checked out Auburn, I would highly recommend it!
