As a new member of the American University family, I invite you to view a brief video welcoming you to campus and providing practical tips for success.
Some of the things that make AU so special—like opportunities to work with faculty experts and our innovative sustainability programs—are showcased in the video.
I look forward to seeing you on Friday, August 26, at Opening Convocation (10 am, first-year students assemble on the Friedheim Quad; 11 am, ceremony in Bender Arena) and other Welcome Week events.
And, I encourage you to join me and other students, faculty, and staff at Celebrate AU—our informal welcome-back event for all members of the AU community, featuring music, food, and more on Monday, August 29 (2 to 3:30 pm on the Eric Friedheim Quadrangle; rain date: Wednesday, August 31).
Best wishes for a great fall semester.
