After reading the negative comments here, I mustSuper BrilliantComputer Science
After reading the negative comments here, I must disagree. Auburn is a good school, especially for students in Engineering and Education. I've heard the Architecture program is also excellent. I'm double majoring in Computer Science and Physics, in the Honors College, and involved in undergraduate research for a professor working for CERN. I've also made extensive use of Auburn's huge library. If you're smart, motivated, dedicated, and ambitious, Auburn's an excellent choice academically. Furthermore, the city is a nice, quiet, small town. If you want a big city with clubs, pubs, restaurants, bowling alleys, ice-skating rinks, and amusement parks, by all means, go elsewhere. But if you like hanging out, going to parties, and taking it easy - again, you can't do much better than Auburn.

Depending upon the type of person you mayQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Depending upon the type of person you may be, I strongly suggest that prospective students to this university exhibit extreme caution in making a final commitment decision. If you are a Serious student seeking a community where mental stimulation is upheld amongst the vast majority of the student body, HALT ABRUPTLY NOW! Go somewhere else! Students at this school are infinitely more concerned with getting absolutely wasted, or having conversation pertaining to amorphous, jargon replete trendy fashion, or who they fucked the night before...yuppie town indeed. Be wary!! This is a haven for self-conceited, entirely conservative, completely narcissistic, mindless sluts...though many of them are admittedly quite attractive, don't plan on engaging in any sort of meaningful conversation with them. As for the remaining aspects of the social scene, is very much nonexistent much to my chagrin. The town is infinitesimally miniscule and offers NO real entertaining diversions from studying. Inordinate amounts of alcohol consumption and football seem to be everyone's only passions; an incredible shame. It's even more disheartening because actually, most professors I had or encountered were very intelligent, well-versed in their particular fields, and willing to help the students to succeed. All the professors are very accessible, seem amiable and are not a bit pompous. In conclusion, this isn't an insanely awful place to attend higher education strictly depending on the type of individual you are, however, non-conformists and free thinkers, you will be engulfed in a menagerie of mind numbing, Johnny frat boy assholes! 'Tis a mandate that you shall experience feelings of being lost, lonely, dejected, isolated from progressive society, and totally worthless. These maleovlent factors are precisely why I'm transferring to either the University of Georgia, Wisconsin, or Michigan next year.(I was accpted for transfer to all of these institutions after earning a 3.6 first year GPA) If your priorities and goals consist of a slightly more intellectually inclined orientation; more than simply booze and football, I'd seriously instruct you to seek higher learning and your temporary location of abode elsewhere. I must be honest in informing you this is definitely NOT worth it. If you are at all similar to me, please don't come here as I'd likely be your only friend and I'm outttttta here next year ^_^

I am an out-of-state sophomore, and since the day I set foot here, it has been extremely difficult to meet people. No one goes out of their way to meet people, unless you're in a sorority/ fraternity and you have some sort of connection to them. The Greeks are very arrogant and cliquish. I will say that a majority of the guys here are very easy to get along with, very friendly and open-minded towards everyone, but the girls are VERY close-minded and complete snobs for no reason. It's very hard to make friends here if you came here not knowing anyone and are not going Greek. Academically, it's challenging and you will get a good education. But as many people I have met here say, LOOKS AREN'T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM - Auburn appears to be this great place when you tour, but in reality, it's very shut off socially and there is NOTHING, let me repeat, NOTHING to do in this town, especially if you're not a big partier.
