Getting Involved

Student Involvement at AU

What's your passion? Whether it's social justice, community service, the arts — or, say, frisbee or beekeeping — AU has a home for you. At AU, involvement isn't an after-thought. It's how students build skills, make change, and find space to relax and connect. It's a big part of what makes us a community.
