Auburn is a very good school, and it provides an excellent academic environment. The social scene is great, and there are a lot of opportunities to make friends. People here are friendly and easy to get along with.

That said, I strongly advise against going straight into Auburn out of high school, UNLESS Auburn offers you a scholarship that beats out the price of Southern Union. Auburn has a sky-high in-state tuition, and the Board of Trustees just approved another 4.5% tuition hike, raising the cost to just under $10,000 per year (plus don't get me started on how the university nickels and dimes you with extra junk fees on top of that). Nobody should feel compelled to pay that much for a college education—especially if you could take two years of the same set of classes for significantly cheaper (and not have to sit in a giant 500-seat lecture hall that is packed with *high school* students). Southern Union is close enough that you could actually live in Auburn, drive to Southern Union for your classes, then come back to Auburn to study and hang with friends (you might even find a student who is willing to sell you his or her football ticket), and a big plus—you'd get your first two years done on the cheap.
