What do you really love about AU?The diversity! We have people that come from all sorts of different backgrounds and it is wonderful interacting and meeting all sorts of new people!

What is your favorite spot on campus?TDR- I love food and their theme nights.
Any advice for incoming students?It is completely normal to feel out of place and lost- everyone is! It is okay to be not ok and AU has awesome resources available. You are strong and you can do it!
