This school is overrated. I graduated from here in 2005 and have had a very hard time trying to find a job afterwards. Auburn itself is a really cool city, it's clean and it thrives on Auburn Football. But attending here was not my best decision. The social life is awful! I had a African American friend get scolded at and kicked out of multiple parties all because of the color of his skin. If you're not in a frat or sorority, your social life will suck. The apartments are really nice, as are the dorms. Also please for the love if god do not buy into their lies when they tell you their engineering department is the best. I've had a number of friend, all majored and got their degrees in mechanical engineering, agricultural, etc.., and had to go back because no one would hire them. This is not to say they don't have a good engineering department; but you ask most Auburn fans, they will tell you it's the best in the south, which is completely false. The faculty is nice, the teachers grade way too hard and are unhelpful, the students are really snobby and rude. I love Auburn and always will, but god is it frustrating to hear our fans talk constantly about that school in Tuscaloosa. If you are from out of state, be prepared. Auburn football is fun but you'll find many Auburn fans have an inferiority complex and it is insufferable.

Auburn is a "good" school, nothing less. Unless you get your masters or you are in the Vet program, be prepared for a long search and wait for a job.

commentExactly, this school only cares about football and nothing else. It's sad and pathetic really.
