I would recommend this campus to anyone who is adventurous wants to get the most out of the community. The campus counselors are always willing to help the students, whether it be choosing classes, majors or if you may be thinking about changing your major. I moved from a small town in Northeast Wisconsin without knowing anyone on campus, and yet I felt right at home. The dorms are very roomy and clean. There are many activities and sports!

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 might be biased but there truly is no other school like Auburn. Auburn University feels like a family and the support and resources offered to students and even staff in academic and personal senses are unparalleled. The school is continually growing and expanding as necessary to accommodate students and programs. The professors are invested in you and your education and only want you to be a successful college student. Saturdays during the fall semesters are magical and unreal; football games. The SEC ranked team brings together hundreds/thousands of alumni, family members, students, and Auburn fans pour into Jordan Hare Stadium and the family atmosphere is wholly evident. Rolling Toomers Corner with the Auburn family after a win is an unforgettable and intoxicating experience.
