I currently study Poultry Science within the College of Agriculture. My experience has been nothing but amazing. Auburn University is known to be an Agriculture school. The College of Agriculture is one big family. There are many opportunities that keep the students and faculty involved with each other. That's what makes this experience for me so wonderful. Since my freshman year, I have always been welcomed and given so many wonderful opportunities to better my experience in learning my major. The department of Poultry Science is especially outstanding for their interactions with the students. Everyone knows everybody and we all work to together to help feed the world one chicken at a time!
Review Auburn University
My daughter has had really good experiences at Auburn. She has been involved with outstanding leadership programs, groups and club sports. The college town has a small town feel and everyone embraces the students.
The students are supportive of each other and causes that matter. The professors are engaging and work with the students to ensure they succeed!
I am currently a sophomore attending Auburn University. My time here has been awesome at the least. The overall college atmosphere is something to fall in love with. I am currently studying in the engineering program and everyone seems to be in love with their overall decision of coming here. The diversity however could be slightly better, seeing everything unfold in the world. With one step at a time, I'm sure the Auburn family will overcome anything!
