I moved to Auburn about four years ago to attend Auburn University. At first, I was overwhelmed by the number of people that resided here, but the population has no affect on the friendliness of its people. Everyone smiles to each other as they walk past and the school spirit is high. The cost of living is reasonable, besides housing. There isn't enough housing as of now for everyone, but there is tons of it being built now! Auburn is growing more every day and offering better apartments, restaurants, and bars. The commute time is nice, but on game days it's pretty hectic wherever you go, so plan on searching for a parking spot for an hour and a half. If you can't find a job within the town, there is always a place in the University, which brings in a lot of international students and creates diversity. There is a great mix of just about everything and I would't change a thing if I could.
