Welcome New Eagles!

Congratulations on your admission to American University and welcome to the Eagle Family!

Get Ready for Eagle Summit

Earn your wings when you work with your Orientation Leader and small group in-person to complete Eagle Summit, an orientation experience that connects New Eagles to their campus through exciting activities, challenges and fun prizes! 

Eagle Summit takes place on Thursday, August 25th and Friday, August 26th. Your Eagle Summit date is determined by your move-in date and any programs you may be a part of during All-American Welcome.

We've sent you an email with your Eagle Summit assignment, but you can explore the schedule and details here
