Why has AU been a good match for you?

I feel that AU matches me a lot. I chose AU as my four-year undergraduate university because it's in DC, has a very good education system and has a lot of international students. I live on Capitol Hill, close to the congress. I always walk around the Capitol Building and it's such a great feeling to be walking around the center of the United States. Plus I've met lots of friends from around the world and have been able to learn a lot about different cultures from them.
