What Students Are Saying

3.29 Average Rating
Don't come to this school to play games. It is not tolerated, these teachers are on a mission and will do everything in their power to help you succeed!
Sadira from Aurora, IL
If you do come here take advantage of everything that is offered it will make your experience here worth it.
Vanessa from Elk Grove Village, IL
Visit and make sure you have questions ready.
Taniyah from Chicago, IL
I know it looks too expensive, but Scholarships Scholarships Scholarships!
Austin from Mount Pleasant, MI
Try to get involved as much as you can and always talk to teachers if you need help. It is really hard to catch up on work once you fall behind. If you ever get confused, go to your teacher during their office hours and they will be more than willing to help.
Christina from Aurora, IL
For students interested in AU, I would recommend them to visit the university. They should ask questions about the university and helpful resources. If you are interested in a sport or club, you should definitely join one or more.
From Montgomery, IL
Be open if to what you want and if you're not sure what you want to pursue. The staff at this school will help you in either direction. The diversity at this school is pretty open so it isn't difficult to find all kinds of different things to channel your energy here.
Kelly from Chicago, IL
I recommend visiting AU on more than one occasion so that you can see a little more variety in the school, and to go on a nice, sunny day, because if you go on a rainy day it will ruin the whole experience. Don't be afraid to ask questions; the faculty as well as the students are some of the nicest people I have ever met. The faculty is very understanding and willing to help, and the students are very accepting. I was surprised at how friendly the entire campus is.
Becca from Illinois
Get involved on campus. There is an office of student activities in the Spartan Spot (student hangout with food made to order, a tv and a pool table) this is the place to go to to find out about any student organization, or even create your own! Getting involved helps you meet new people, and also is helpful for meeting non-teaching faculty that may help you in the future with recommendations. It is important to get involved early to build your resume, especially if you plan on getting an internship. I am actively involved in two student organizations, attend school as a full-time student, and work part-time on campus. It has really helped me.
