Connect and Engage Virtually

Alumni play an important role in ensuring our students’ continued success. Time and again, AU alumni demonstrate that Eagles look out for one another. After all, it’s in our DNA to take action. Alumni can give back by providing mentorship and career support to students or by admissions work with prospective students.
