Most Helpful Review for American University

I've found that the edge that American University has is the range of classes offered. The classes required for each major and much more focused than other schools I've looked into. I fell in love with only taking glasses that truly interest and intrigue me as oppose to a large number of broad requirements. I've learned more because of the extra interest and direction that the school allows its students.

    Beautiful Campus. I loved the teacher presentations. Internships and opportunites in DC seem awesome.

    I went to go look at this school in February of 2013 when I was looking at Maryland CP, GWU, and Georgetown. I got on the campus and was immediately unimpressed, the entire campus was grey and drap and the people were less than friendly. Needless to say, I did not apply here.

    American University is a unique university in the center of a city with so much always happening. The students are so smart and down to earth and each person is so inclusive. And lastly, I am only in my first year but American University offers so many different and distinguished opportunities.

    Very career oriented school, with lots of resources for finding jobs and internships in the heart of DC. Excellent for public affairs students and those with and interest in working in government or international affairs. Very liberal though, and dinning services is awful.

    American University is top-notch education with valuable aspects. It's small size provides a lovely and friendly community feel, while mixing the culture of the greatest political city in USA. Rather than being bitter rivals, American University, as the others around it, encourage friendly cooperative competition between other DC schools to maximize your college experience.

    American University is a place that is both great and frustrating at the same time. Where they excel in opportunity and friendly faces, they lack in actual racial diversity and competent financial aid help. It is one of those places that is great, but has individuals who don't understand what it's like to have real problems.

    American University has been very good at keeping applicants in the loop and reaching out to admitted students with information and opportunities to ask questions.

    Academically strong and geographically ideal, AU is a great school. I enjoy how we are in DC, but not immediately downtown so there is a traditional campus feeling. The students are quite focused; it's not a party school, but we do have fun.
