Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am very honored to have the opportunity to be in AU Foreign Language Education Program. Being in this program is offering me the opportunity to learn how to teach one of the languages that I love, Spanish. Although I do not have an undergraduate degree in education, AU's program has an alternative program that has allowed me to pursuit my goals. This program is also offering me the opportunity to sharpen my skills in my native language. Once I have completed this graduate program I plan on teaching,and also working to bring awareness to the richness of having an appreciation to foreign cultures, which is something that I have a great passion towards.

It is a great, hands on program. I get a lot of experience with aquaculture and a real quality education.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is a small program, so interaction is typically one-on-one, which is nice. The program is highly ranked, and the workload is difficult but rarely overwhelming. I'm overall very pleased with my graduate program, and Auburn University and the town of Auburn, Alabama are wonderful places!

Auburn's Master of Accountancy program is the best program I heard about while looking at graduate schools. You start the courses early, in the summer rather than fall, so that in the spring you take less classes and have more time to take the CPA exam. Auburn MAcc students have pass rates in the 80% and 90% for the CPA exam.

Auburn University is a prestigious school in Alabama. It was rated as the fifth hardest university to receive an A in any course. This rigorous academic level is complimented by Auburn's buzzing social scene. With Greek houses, thriving athletic departments, and numerous honor societies Auburn has a club or organization for everyone even their online students. Auburn is nestled in a quaint part of Alabama near shopping and larger cities such as Opelika, Alabama and Columbus, Georgia. However, these areas are not known for their safety and crime rates are at time high. While the crime rate is high near Auburn, the police in Auburn are always on top of their game. I have always felt safe when on campus for sporting events, to meet with professors, or just shopping at the Auburn bookstore. It is quite clear from my ability to acquire a job that my academic standing at Auburn is very valuable. A 4.0 standing at such a prestigious university is setting me apart from my peers. I believe that this institution will prepare me academically and professionally for the real world.

Auburn University offers programs great for everyone!
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the pros of the program are the outstanding faculty. They are very caring and have much knowledge on the topics, and are willing to meet with you outside of class. The cons of this program would be possibly the lack of challenge I have felt so far. However, I know it is my first semester, and it will get much harder and more challenging.

Kind of a boring place to live, though not too far from more interesting cities. Quality of the faculty is highly variable.
