    dining is mediocre with the exception of chik-fil-a, the wellness kitchen, and papa johns. hours vary and so does quality. best bang for your buck are the fast food chains.

    There are many choices available, regardless of your taste and preference. Dining is very convenient with the use of our Tiger Cards (required prepaid meal plan). It is very nice to have so many options and for them to be conveniently located.

    There are many choices for on-campus dining. The student center and Hill and Village dorms contain many great food options. My favorites include: the unlimited buffet in the Village, and Go-Greek, Papa John's and Chickfila in the student center. The city of Auburn also has great restaurants. Newk's, Niffer's, and Mugshots are popular dining options,

    Unlike most universities that have dining halls that students have to eat at, U doesn't. They give tiger cards which is a card that comes with the tuition you pay which either has 300 or 995 dollars on it. There are TONS of resturaunts on campus, and if it is on campus then you can use your tiger card to buy food there. Personally I love healthy food so I go to Au Bon Pain which is like a panera, and the wellness kitchen which is AMAZING.

    a really big thing on campus, especially when it's time for homecoming. avoid the concourse at these times. rush starts before school for sororities, and fraternities start after school does.

    Auburn has a very active Greek life. But it is also perfectly acceptable if you choose not to be part of it.

    Greek life is large at Auburn. There are 18 sororities. Greek life is a great organization where each support and fundraise for a philanthropy. The members are wonderful women who strive to make Auburn a better place.

    It doesn't make or break you. Fraternity parties are fun even if you do not go greek.

    Greek life can feel overwhelming if you aren't in a sorority/fraternity. Frat parties are all right, if you are a girl, you can get in no matter what. Guys who aren't in frats have more issues trying to go to frat parties. Everyone in the system is super nice, so if you aren't sure if you want to rush, you should go for it. You can always drop during recruitment and you are bound to meet some great people during rush.

    Auburn University is not a majority Greek campus, but we do have the Panhellenic and IFC organizations here. If that is something a student would be interested in, there are a lot of people who really enjoy it. It is not everything at Auburn University though, there are a lot of people not involved in the Greek system that are very happy to not be a part of it. It does not define who you are on this campus.

    Greek life may seem like a big part of Auburn but is actually only about 25% of the student body. If you're interested in Greek life, the fraternities have houses, and the sororities have halls and chapter rooms. There are many Greek organizations to choose from, some even including religious or service themes. If you're not interested in this, it's not overpowering, and you will still find somewhere to fit in.
