    AU is very big on learning outside the classroom.

    Some classes involve community service. While others take me to Capitol Hill to see politics up close and personal. I like having the tangible skill set that kind of hands-on learning and exposure gives me. Plus, anyone with a Political Science or Economics degree will end up coming to DC eventually. Being inside the beltway offers experiences within the country's three main powerhouses: the Capitol, Supreme Court, and White House. 

    So many of my AU professors have had a profound impact on me.

    Professor Marilyn Goldhammer taught me how to take anything I learn and apply it to the rest of my life. Jessica Waters’ passion for law inspired me to take an internship with NBC’s Pete Williams. Lenny Steinhorn’s amazing analytical ability sparked that quality in me. And Carolyn Brown, whose class gave me real world TV experience, helped me launch my career. From clubs to the classroom, AU presents so many incredible opportunities. Take them.
