All are true, but it is the spirit of the Auburn experience that will live with you forever. Auburn has a creed. "And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it. -George Petrie (1945)" Learn more about the Auburn Family ... we'd love to welcome you to the experience. http://family.auburn.edu/profiles/blogs/this-is-fresh-this-is-bold-this-is-auburn

            I LOVED going to Auburn for a lot of different reasons: great international community (you feel that school makes everyone feel included), learn at your own pace (you can always find courses to fill your summer to graduate sooner), fantastic, impeccable campus and always a sense of moving forward. This is a great place to live and learn. WAR EAGLE!
