Auburn is a medium size university in a small town, althought there has been a lot of growth in recent years. the community is centered around the university and there is a wonderful family atmosphere. I majored in engineering which is one of the strong programs at Auburn and loved it. I always felt a sense of loyalty to the school and academics.
Auburn is so rich in tradition, I have never met someone from any other school who has the same depth of passion for their school, both academically and spirit-wise. I would very much recommend Auburn University and if I had to do it over again I would go to Auburn in a heartbeat.
