I bought the twin sized set for our 8 year old son's bed. They are made out of pretty good fabric, but I'm still not impressed (for several reasons). A- The pillowcase doesn't match the sheets, it's a lighter, more faded blue color, not really bad, but noticable. B- The fitted sheet is significantly too long for our standard sized twin mattress. (It's probably meant for the extra long dorm sized twin mattresses.), And C- The cuff of the flat sheet is not at the top, but at the bottom of the sheet, not a huge deal, but these sheets are likely seconds/flawed sets. They might be a good value for your Auburn University student moving into the dorm, as long as you don't mind having your AU upside down on your bed, or having the cuff tucked in at the bottom of the bed. And the king set is probably a good value since both sets are the same price (and the king sized pillowcases might actually match).
