The AU Chicago Community seeks to rekindle some of that Eagle spirit in its members. With a vibrant and lively culture to play with, this community puts together great networking events at area hot spots and cultural and sporting events that take advantage of Chicago’s great traditions. Of course, the occasional AU basketball game on the big screen of a favored sports bar brings out the best of Eagle pride.
