Showcase AU

Showcase AU is your opportunity to experience American University firsthand. Most programs feature an overnight opportunity that begins on the afternoon of the first day. The overnight is entirely optional. 

Here are just some of the benefits of these programs:

  • Spend the night on campus with a current AU student (optional)
  • Hear from faculty about programs that interest you
  • Learn about academic programs, campus life, and special programs such as University College and Study Abroad
  • Tour the campus with a current AU student

Please note that overnight visits are limited to 50 students.

Parents are welcome to join students for Showcase AU programming the day following the overnight visit.
