“Auburn is a melting pot of cultures. I’ve made friends from more than 15 countries during my time here by going to different campus events, which made me feel comfortable and right at home. Everyone in Auburn, including complete strangers, greets you when you walk by. This feeling of belonging is the Auburn Family.”

"Many Vietnamese students like big cities in places like New York or California, but personally I recommend choosing Auburn because it is a small town and everyone knows each other. It is like a community. I really like the community feeling in Auburn. You can easily meet friends.”

Major: Public Administration

"Auburn Global has been fantastic. I initially had the mindset that Auburn Global would help me transition to life in the United States, but they went the extra mile to help me. Not every university would do that. I'm so grateful Auburn did."

Arjit, India
Major: Industrial Design

“Auburn Global has been helpful in so many ways. They register students for their major classes but also register students for Auburn Global classes, which helped me a lot with transitioning to higher-level classes and the American higher education system in general. Additionally, Auburn Global has weekly student events which included things like a Halloween party and tailgating before football games. During these events I met a lot of new friends that I may not have met otherwise.” Read more to learn about one of the awesome friendships Arjit has made since coming to Auburn.
