Washington D.C. is a fun and exciting place to study. At American University we believe that learning should be done not only in the classroom, but also outside in the community, so we encourage our students to take advantage of the city’s many cultural and historical attractions. Below is a list of a few student favorites.
Shopping for local goods and produce at DC’s historic Eastern Market
Cheering for Washington’s baseball team at National’s Park
