Why has AU been a good match for you?

I don’t really know about the other majors at AU, but if you want to major in School of International Service, it’s a great place for you to be at. It’s in DC! Tons of great opportunities and the career center is outstanding and really helpful. AU makes you think about your career life and what you want to do when you’re just a freshman and that’s good because you have time and opportunities to achieve or even change your goals. There are many international students here and you can really learn how to be a global citizen if you want.
