Say “Hey!” to Auburn University in Auburn, AL! (A campus tradition is “Hey Day”, a day which encourages social interaction whenever students pass by each other). Auburn is one of few American universities to earn the triple designation of being a land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant research institution, and “puts their students first” by offering nationally-ranked programs in architecture, engineering, interior design, business and a lot more. Its 21,000 undergraduates and 5,500 graduate students (the Tigers) enjoy state-of-the-art facilities ranging from the popular Campus Recreation and Wellness Center (including two climbing towers and 1/3-mile corkscrew track) and the Charles Cary Veterinary Medical Library to laboratories focused on polymer and fiber science, biosystems engineering and more. On-campus living here is active and vibrant across four residential complexes and more than twenty Greek chapters. And as of December 2015, Auburn’s study-abroad program is even providing students the opportunity to take core curriculum classes in Rome! Overall, it’s no surprise so many students choose Auburn for their educational development.
