After a semester at AU, I feel as if I have been lied to by the University. I was given a list of rankings and honors given to AU and have found most to be either exaggerations or complete lies. I was told how great the ME department at Auburn was but have found it to be horrible. The technology here sucks, the engineering departments lacks the basic computer and machinery technology that is required for a successful career in engineering. My high school better combined technology and education than this university. Most of the students and faculty are practically computer illiterate; therefore, making it impossible to fully utilize the very limited technology Auburn does have. In addition, the academic programs are not the least bit challenging and I can honestly say I have not learned anything from my classes. The student body is a disappointment to say the least. This place is redneck central!! Everyone (almost) is extremely racists and completely backwards in ideology; some of the frats have had a mock lynching as a party theme ( They do not value diversity to any degree and demonstrate overt bigotry combined with total ignorance. Don’t plan on having an intellectual conversation with anyone; they have no clue as to current events or any other intellectual area. The only thing anyone about here is getting drunk, stoned, and what person they going to have sex with this night of the week. Again, more lies. The whole town here sucks, it is in the middle of nowhere and there is no real entertainment in Auburn. The only thing to do is go to a shitty bar and get drunk, which is the main focus of everyone here. In exploring future job opportunities, I have found that AU has lost the respect of employers and other universities (assuming it was every respected). SACS is one the verge of revoking its accreditation and most students don’t know or care. My advice to prospective students is RUN AWAY QUICKLY. I can’t wait until this semester is over, I’m transferring out of here.
