Attending Eagle Summit in June, July or August is advantageous for students. They learn how to navigate campus, connect with peers, and learn ways to make their transition to college successful. We had more than 90% of our incoming students attend last year!

At Eagle Summit we focus on time spent in small groups led by Orientation Leaders, to help students establish connections. We also introduce attendees to various campus resources, and highlight the many facets of being a part of the AU community.
