    As a recent alum of the university, I challenge anyone to come up with a more beautiful campus in the South than Auburn. The town is nice and yes it's small, but it's not "Bumfuck, Mississippi". I have my fair share of gripes with the athletic department as a whole, but that comes with working at the college paper and getting the old bob and weave. They're a good group of people though and if this is the kind of gig you're looking for then it's a good place to be.
