President Obama speaking at AU

Video contains no sound or narration. AU's spirit is captured through the people, places, and events on campus and in DC. A professor addresses incoming students at the opening of the academic year. President Obama addresses School of International Service students, faculty, and the world about the Iran Nuclear Deal. Washington College of Law students gather in the Library Commons on the new Tenley campus. A jogger runs past the Jefferson Memorial as cherry blossoms bloom. Students study at tables in Bender Library that overlook the quad and its flourishing plants and trees.

    Engaging in service opportunities makes me more aware of others' needs.

    AU clearly presents many service opportunities to us. I really enjoyed the Freshman Service Experience. And I recently took part in the MLK Jr. Day of Service at the Washington Center for Aging. But service opportunities are everywhere here. Our clubs serve different communities across campus and in DC. I try to take advantage of as many of these opportunities as possible.

    It's helpful to hear that your ideal job does exist.

    My program at AU is very scholar-practitioner based, so I get professors like Hrach Gregorian. He's a down-to-earth man who has played important roles in helping promote peace and reconciliation all over the globe since the '80s. There’s a lot of idealism in this field, so when I see it’s also practical and the jobs I want do exist, it fuels my passion.

    Creating quality campaign ads is difficult, and there's an art to getting viewers' attention. Image:
