With 13 colleges and schools and nationally ranked programs in architecture, business, engineering, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine, organizations recruiting our graduates say that Auburn University students have an edge with their level of professionalism, communication skills, and preparation.

Auburn University is situated in the small city of Auburn, Alabama, in the Southeastern United States. Auburn is not only a great place to live, it was also ranked 18th in Forbes' list of "The Best Small Places for Business and Careers" and the fourth most educated city in the U.S. (New Geography, 2015)

Auburn Spirit

All universities have traditions. At Auburn, our soaring spirit is symbolized by an eagle, and a roaring attitude represented by a tiger. You just can't help getting caught up in it all. Start practicing the Auburn cheer 'War Eagle!'

Auburn War Eagle

The Eagle

The golden eagle is the soaring symbol of the Auburn spirit. Our War Eagle, called Nova, War Eagle VII, entertains fans with her customary flight around Auburn’s famous Jordan-Hare Stadium prior to each home football game. The ‘War Eagle!’ cheer you will hear during sporting events has been a tradition for more than 100 years. It has become a way for the Auburn Family to greet and identify with each other all over the world.

Auburn Tiger

The Tiger

Aubie, Auburn's costumed tiger mascot, is a popular character among Auburn sports fans and one of the best mascots in the country. Aubie is the living spirit of Auburn. He's an nine-time National Mascot Champion, the most of any mascot, and the first to be inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame. Full of mischief, you’ll look forward to watching Aubie as much as the games themselves.

Small Town, Big Experience

Auburn is a small city with a mild climate and big opportunities. The city’s downtown area is within walking distance of campus and includes a variety of restaurants and shops. In just a 10-minute drive, you can visit several movie theaters or a shopping mall, play 90 holes of golf, or visit Chewacla State Park — a state park with 696 acres of hiking and camping.


Just 1.5 hours away you’ll find the largest city in the Southeast, Atlanta, home to the nation’s busiest airport (so it’s easy to fly home) and more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies. Within Alabama, you can relax on the beaches of the Gulf coast or check out the restaurants, shops, and nightlife in Birmingham.

On Campus

Throughout the year, Auburn's campus hosts a variety of concerts, cultural and sporting events, international festivals, and art exhibits. Amid classes and studying, you can join student organizations or perhaps participate in an intramural sports team. Most days, you can stroll around campus with friends, picnic in the Davis Arboretum (a 13.5-acre nature preserve on campus), or gather your books for an outdoor study session.
