I adore the sense of family here! Despite the size of the student population, Auburn University feels like home! I would like to see more information about on campus student job opportunities more frequently announced. Other than that, there is not much to complain about. I have had some really good teachers as well as some not so good teachers, but overall my experiences has been great. The courses are time consuming and require one to put in effort, however, that is to be expected.

I like the fact that Auburn University has many resources for career planning and opportunities. There is an office dedicated to students to meet with representatives from different companies on a monthly basis.

Also, I like that Auburn University has 2 offices of tutoring resources for the students. Tutors in every subject offer free tutoring to the students daily.

Auburn is a great university!
I chose to go to Auburn because many of my family members attended Auburn University and I wanted to join. I have wanted to be a member of the Auburn Engineering family since sixth grade, and I finally did this past fall. Auburn is a great place where you can meet great people, great professors, and have great opportunities. The campus is beautiful, the academics are great, and don't get me started on the athletics! Auburn is a great place to be in beautiful Alabama.
