Welcome to life as an Eagle! At AU, we're changemakers. We’re all about building connections, strengthening community, and creating a better future. On campus or off campus, in DC or abroad, we rise to the challenges of our times – and we do it together.
The AU journey starts with Orientation. Orientation at American University is a multi-part program, with virtual summer sessions and in-person welcome events offered at the start of the fall semester. We hope that after participating in orientation you’ll feel at home, be ready to succeed and have found a community with your fellow Eagles!
