All-American Success!

All-American Weekend 2017 was the most successful ever! We had a 12% increase in attendees this year. The weekend was full of fun and laughter. Alumni and students brought their families and friends to share in the spirit of AU.

Alumni from the class of 1952 to the class of 2017 celebrated all things AU, renewed their connections to the university, and showed palpable excitement around the university's future. 

It was a beautiful weekend to launch several new events, including the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Faire, the Multicultural Alumni Reunion's Books and Brunch and Distinguished Alumni Panel events, and the Student Government and Eagle Staff Reunion.

Other highlights of the weekend were the Golden Eagles Luncheon, Class of 1967 Reception, Taste of AU, the Kennedy Political Union featuring Gabrielle Union, and the All-Alumni Party at the International Spy Museum (which had nearly 200 attendees). 

The weekend was a hit, and it's only going to get better. Thank you to everyone who attended.
