The alumni network is fantastic, I feel that alums are always getting involved and donating their time and money to current AU students. People have such a great sense of pride for AU that the alums go above and beyond to bond with current AU students. The student career center is hardly involved and every time I have gone through the career center to apply for an on campus job it has always fallen through.

The professors I have had in my first year have gone out of their way on many occasions to help students and to make sure they understand the material presented. Since it is a smaller campus, classroom sizes are smaller and students are able to have a better relationship with professors since there aren't 100 students in each lecture. I wish a wider variety of classes were offered in each department.

The community is so great at AU, I think there's something for everyone there. Campus life is a little dry, not much happens on the weekends. The people are all very genuine and care about each other--same goes for the professors. I like the challenge that the liberal arts program offers, but sometimes wish there were more course opportunities available. The staff is short in some areas, but the teachers are passionate and have so much to teach students. If I could go back to when I made my decision of which college to go to, I would not change anything. I am so glad I chose AU, I love it here and I love all the people I have met so far.
