President's Message: 14 Tips for First Years (Welcome Video)
Dear New Undergraduate Student,
As a new member of the American University family, I invite you to view a
brief video welcoming you to campus and providing practical tips for success.
Some of the things that make AU so special-like opportunities to work with faculty experts and our innovative sustainability programs-are showcased in the video.
I look forward to seeing you on Friday, August 26, at
Opening Convocation (10 am, first-year students assemble on the Friedheim Quad; 11 am, ceremony in Bender Arena) and other Welcome Week events.
And, I encourage you to join me and other students, faculty, and staff at
Celebrate AU-our informal welcome-back event for all members of the AU community, featuring music, food, and more on Monday, August 29 (2 to 3:30 pm on the Eric Friedheim Quadrangle; rain date: Wednesday, August 31).
