Student Experience

The student experience is considered very good at Auburn, indeed over 90% of students return to study following their freshman year. One of the main reasons for this is the knowledgeable professors and courses that are designed not to be too stressful. Although not up to the likes of places like Penn, Princeton, or Stanford, the quality of education offered at Auburn is considered to be very good.

Red brick buildings are nice, historic, and have impressive southern style architecture. And the grounds that they occupy are beautiful. Although the campus is large it is not considered to be overwhelming. Many comment on the overall tidiness of the camps grounds and the lushness of the lawns.

The accommodation available on campus is a bit of a mix and match, and it’s largely
down to luck whether you get into one of the nice large dorms or a run down one long in need of refurbishment. Overall most students are happy with the dorm facilities but feel that they could be better. Many mention that though living in the quad allows for a great location wise that parking facilities are poor. Conversely, although the Village offers better campus housing it is a bit of a drag to get to some parts of campus.
