First Year Experience
There is much to look forward to during your first year at AU. First-Year Experience programs connect you to outstanding faculty, staff, and fellow students. Your education here means far more than grades. You will acquire confidence in asking questions and thinking critically. You will engage with viewpoints different than your own and discover how collaboration across disciplines can help us to solve some of society’s most complicated problems. You will also have transformative experiences that extend your learning beyond the classroom, such as study abroad, undergraduate research, and service learning.
