See what it's like to be a student at American University.

Day visits are designed to give you a glimpse of the true college experience. You will have the opportunity to sit in on a class with a current American University student and have lunch in our dining hall. You may choose to take a tour or attend an information session. We try to accommodate individual preferences but you may need to be flexible due to class and advisor availability.
