Academics

It’s easy to understand why undergraduates are attracted to Auburn University Montgomery.  After all, from the moment you set foot on campus, it’s evident that this is a school where “professors and administrators are genuinely interested in students’ learning and development.”  Indeed, Auburn fosters a classroom experience that’s “perfect” for individuals “who appreciate an interactive learning environment” and seek “opportunit[ies] to work closely with faculty.”  While the university offers a wide array of academic departments and disciplines, students proudly call special attention to Auburn’s highly rated business, nursing and education programs.  Fortunately, no matter the chosen course of study, all students benefit from “small classes” and a “personalized...education.”  Though the quality of professors can run the gamut, by and large students find their teachers “engaging” and “friendly” albeit “demanding.”  The majority of professors “seem to really enjoy teaching” and are “always willing to help a student who wants to learn.”  An impressed English major adds, “They have been highly supportive, and are always excited to go the extra mile if you want to learn more information outside of the planned course.”  Perhaps it’s best to let this content junior sum up her university, “Auburn University Montgomery is not just a college...it’s a home away from home.”

Student Body

When asked to describe the average AUM undergrad, many individuals scoff and claim that there’s no typical student to be found here.  For example, as this knowledgeable senior exhorts, “I’ve met so many different kinds of people from moms, dads [and] intellectuals [to] kids right out of high school that have no idea what they’re doing or why their parents made them go to college. There are foreign students, students I knew from high school, fraternities, and sororities. It’s is seriously the most diverse place I’ve ever been.”  Nevertheless, there are some commonalities to be found.  A number of students happily report that, overall, their peers are “friendly and laid-back.”  Indeed, it “is fairly easy to approach and interact with the average student here.”  And when it comes to demographics, it’s safe to say that a large number of students hail “from around the tri-county area.”  Auburn also nets its fair share of “non-traditional students.”  Fortunately, all in all, “whether it be recreation, intramurals, clubs and organizations, athletics, student government association, campus ministry, wellness, or more, each person can find at least one place that he or she ‘fits in’.”

Campus Life

Auburn has a fairly large commuter population as well as a significant number of undergrads who have families.  Therefore, it can frequently feel as though school life is lacking.  As one freshman bemoans, “During the weekends the campus is like a ghost town.”  However, while AUM could be viewed as “a quiet little school,” a handful of students insist there is fun to be had.  For starters, many individuals love to take advantage of the “wonderful wellness center.”  Undergrads also rave about the intramural sports program which sponsors “lots of activities for students who are not part of a formal team.”  And, of course, many students can be found hanging out in “Warhawk Alley,” a recreation area replete with “pool table, lounge chairs, ping pong, Xbox 360 and more!”  Additionally, undergrads can participate in    “a number of Greek, religious, academic and common interest clubs on campus.”  Although hometown Montgomery “isn’t the most happenin’ city...we have the essentials, movie theatres, lots of restaurants, a pleasant outdoor mall right next to the campus, an art museum and walking park with a Shakespeare Festival theatre.”  There’s also a “new performing arts center that brings in some decent acts.”  Finally, AUM is “close enough to bigger cities like Atlanta and Birmingham that you could easily make a weekend trip if you wanted.”
