Auburn University is one of the best kept secrets in the country. The campus is arguably the most beautiful in the country as well. Many of the buildings are historic and date back to the civil war, but many buildings (like the brand new business building) are thoroughly modern while maintaining the architectural heritage of the school. The campus is in the rolling plains of southeast central Alabama about 1.5 hours from campus.

One of the first things you will notice at Auburn is that you become a member of the "Auburn Family". Everyone greets you with a hearty "War Eagle" and southern charm abounds. You will not find a more inclusive school regardless of race, creed, religion, gender or sexual orientation. From Toomers Corner to Jordan Hare Stadium you will encounter smiling faces. Another amazing aspect of Auburn is safety. It is in a small college town that is immaculate and well policed. Once you are a member of the Auburn family, you will have an instant network of people that you can count on World Wide.

The faculty is simply amazing. Auburn is in Yahoos top 10

most wired universities
so you can walk in any building and go to a computer terminal and use your student password to access your e-mail, grades, account, financial aid, faculty, research, etc. Everybody you meet from Professors to the people who register you are helpful and friendly. The faculty is academically outstanding, I had professors with Ph.D.'s from Harvard, Duke, Stanford, Columbia, etc who really cared about my understanding for the material. You will not believe how accessible they are.

My education at Auburn has thoroughly prepared me for doctoral studies in marketing research which I will be doing starting the Fall of 2002. I have been accepted to all 5 of the schools to which I applied (including Duke, North Carolina and Florida). I hope to return to AU one day as a professor.

War Eagle!
