Winter Orientation

Welcome to life as an Eagle! At AU, we're changemakers. We’re all about building connections, strengthening community, and creating a better future. On campus or off campus, in DC or abroad, we rise to the challenges of our times – and we do it together. 

Your AU journey starts with Orientation. We’ve designed a remote Orientation to ensure that when your classes kick off you’ll be ready to succeed, and will know some new fellow Eagles, too! 

Be sure to check out the Orientation YouTube channel for a special playlist for our Winter Orientation. We have provided a variety of welcome videos from offices across campus to provide you with important information as you get ready to start your semester.
