American University students are the most politically active in the country, according to Unigo.com, a higher education Web site aimed at prospective college students.
Calling AU a political science powerhouse, writer Brendan McKenna said students’ political awareness sets American apart from other schools. “It seems to be less about activism and more about the business of power at American . . . It must be pretty exciting to be 18 years old and well on your way to becoming a political power broker.”
AU topped George Washington University on Unigo's list.
