"Auburn is a wonderful university! Even attending many years ago, I feel my time there prepared me for my chosen career path. It afforded me the opportunities to learn from some of the greatest instructors in the state. The courses and the practices in the school of education helped prepare me with the most current and effective skills and strategies I needed to be successful in my first teaching job. I was offered many hands-on opportunities as a student as I studied to be an educator. The classes required in this field were so beneficial and practical-- I used so many of the strategies learned at this time early in my teaching career. The professors I worked with were very helpful and gave great advice in helping me to think through some of the lessons I was preparing to teach in a practice setting. They were kind and encouraging and were available to help in anyway needed. They provided resources to their students so that I could find materials and ideas I could use in lesson plans I created as a practice for future teaching opportunities. When applying for my first job, they were willing to provide recommendations through the application process and they would follow up with me until I found my first job. I would highly recommend Auburn University to any student looking to attend a warm and friendly environment. As a graduate of this university, I find that I am very proud to have earned a degree from this great institute."

"Auburn is the perfect college to attend. There is no better feeling on campus and community that I have encountered surrounding a school. They make a point about the Auburn family, and it is absolutely true. The engineering and the business schools are certainly the strengths of the school. Along with some smaller more specialized majors. If you are thinking about going pre-med there is a great advisor committee in biology. The other specialties are less impressive for advising. The departments advising can be extremely negative, something to look out for. Research opportunities are abundant. Teachers will do an amazing job for preparing you for later courses in grad school, or for the real world, even if it doesn't seem like it at the time. They also all had very open office hours and were more than willing to help you be successful. A wonderful school to attend!"

  • Degree: Architecture
  • Graduation Year: 2019
"Pursuing a Bachelor of Architecture at Auburn University was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and completing it, my greatest accomplishment. The coursework is demanding, and the hours are long, but the opportunities are worth it. The faculty are committed to the education of their students and work to create a creative, collaborative environment within the students. While I chose to pursue graduate studies in another career field, I do not regret the years I spent in architecture school. It was the best/hardest thing I've ever done, and it got me to where and who I am now."

"Auburn University's Samuel Ginn College of Engineering provided significant networking opportunities in addition to quality education. Perhaps the most valuable asset that an Auburn engineering student may use is the periodic career fairs and industry visits. Here, students are plugged into eager employers. Auburn Engineering graduates fare well in careers and often secure high starting salaries due to the proven reputation of the college. Furthermore, numerous opportunities within the College exist for students to expand educational goals. Seven minors exist, and each major has numerous concentrations that students pursue. Auburn Engineering boasts an affordable price, yet an excellent education."

"I love Auburn University. I feel it was a great mix of strong academics, friendly environment and fun atmosphere. I has a very strong school spirit, especially when it comes to college football. The town of Auburn feels both small and big at the same time. It is comforting and easy to learn yet offers lots of options for food and shopping. Auburn University has about 25% of its student body participate in greek life. Its a great way to make friends and have a four year support system. You can also do that via athletics or academic clubs."

"Auburn University provided me with a well rounded college experience, both academically and personally. My courses were rigorous but the professors were always willing to help you succeed. Auburn is a large school so sometimes you will find yourself in large classes where the professor may not know you, but if you introduce yourself and visit their office hours, I have found they are always helpful. Auburn provides over 300 campus organizations that you can join, and I firmly believe that my involvement on campus was just as important in shaping me into an adult as was my time spent in the classroom."

  • Graduation Year: 2017
"I attended Auburn University for my Bachelor's degree in Psychology. The psychology program at Auburn University really prepared me to continue my degree in the field of School Psychology. Auburn University is a very large public institution, but the Psychology professors really made it more personable, which in return allowed me to voice my concerns and future goals with them during multiple occasions. The professors at Auburn University did a great job in keeping their student's needs first and foremost. They really wanted to see all of us strive and succeed in our future endeavors. The psychology program opened up opportunities to students that would really help us to better understand the psychological processes that people experience every day. The professors were clear and understanding in their teaching methods, but they also made the courses interesting and it made me excited to go to class. I have student loans that are piled up because I was an out-of-state student, and although I have student debt, Auburn University was the perfect fit for my undergraduate career and I would highly recommend their psychology program to anyone interested."

"The professors I experienced while I was at Auburn were all seemingly ready to retire. I never had anyone who wanted to offer new insight into the field of education. As a matter of fact, I had one professor who repeatedly stated that there was nothing new under the sun. The last practicum professor I had hated me and the other young lady who came to her from a practicum professor that left the program and left us with her. She repeatedly told us how we didn't know anything. I finally landed with a job in a MAJOR metropolitan school district outside of Atlanta and learned all the things I should have learned at Auburn, but didn't. I would NOT recommend a degree from Auburn in Education."

"I start Auburn University's Graduate Certificate Program in Brewing Science & Operations in the fall of 2017. I am very excited about the opportunities that might open up after I graduate. Auburn is the only Masters level program that I could find offering a certificate or degree in Brewing Science. This is important, because a Masters level certificate/degree can be required for certain college faculty positions - I hope to be able to teach in the field, perhaps for a college or university with an on-site brewery or brewpub. I also hope to expand somewhere down the line into operating my own distillery or brewstillery after getting some experience in that area."

"I left Auburn University with mixed feelings. On the social side, it was filet mignon. On the academic side, rump roast! Socially, I met my wife and some of the best friends I'll ever have. I also was able to celebrate a BCS nationally championship in football, which is the most unbelievable experience a college student could ask for in my opinion. Academically, my degree holds little weight in corporate America. Most recruiters I interview with have never heard of Auburn and that automatically dumbs down my degree a bit. I constantly have to legitimize my academic background when it comes to a formal interview process. That said, would I change my college experience if I could do it over again? Absolutely not.
