Regional AU Family Facebook Groups

Eagles are everywhere! We've created regional groups on our official AU Parents and Family Facebook page to help you make local connections. 

To join, we'll ask for your student's name and AUID so that our staff can verify your eligibility to join (we do not share your student's information). Groups are public to find, but comments are only seen by group members. Groups can organize events, share tips and even host small group video chats. 

•   Central
•   Southern
•   West & Non-Contiguous
•   Mid-Atlantic
•  PA & NJ
•  NY, NH, ME, VT 
•  CT, MA, RI 
•  International 

Family Mailing List

Sign up to receive family newsletters, invitations, campus updates and critical alerts. Our newest Eagle families start receiving these emails mid-summer.
