Living in Auburn has been an incredibly depressing experience. The town is virtually non-existent and most of the shops are located out on the highway on stripmalls with no public transport to access these, thus there is no heart or town centre. Consequently I had to buy a car and coupled with health insurance and rent this pretty much usurps my entire monthly budget. Most of the students I know have to share 1 bedroom appartments and get rides to the supermarket with some church group (great is you're an atheist NOT!!!)- so no chance of privacy or independance unless like me you severely suffer financially. If you are looking for culture, diversity, art and music, history, interesting arhitecture this place is NOT for you. The overall atmosphere of this place is quiet and vacant and there is very little to do or see, forget inviting friends or family to visit, where exactly would you take them?? I am so sick of living in such a boring environment which is dominated by football and nothing else that I am transferring to another university and I can't wait to get the hell out of here! For some bizarre reason many of the people here are obsessed with this place and a hell of alot of people are clothed in Auburn paraphenalia, the only reason I can possibly attribute this to is the fact that most people who come here are from other parts of Alabama. This place is probably fine if you are looking for a small quiet safe environment.
