Why has AU been a good match for you?
AU has been a good match for me because of its strong programs in the areas of study I’m interested in such as international relations, history, and communications. I also like the fact that it’s small in size because I feel like a part of a community here.


What is your favorite part about living in DC?
The best part about living in DC is the multitude of opportunities and events the city offers; whether it’s political rallies or internship opportunities. DC is personally the best city for me to go to college in.
