  • Oct-30-2010 I am a current student here

    I enjoy being here because of the quality of the education. There is everything from educational trips across the world to a social life which the student government facilitates very well. I have noticed that there are some students who do not really prefer going to pubs and night clubs or some who do not prefer outdoor activities - even those who prefer different things! Regardless, AUP has things available for each kind of student. Besides, since the students are an integral part of facilitating matters of the school, many students of every character are empowered to create smaller communities with interests in the community of AUP. It is great!
