Real Life. Experienced.

Real learning comes from living life, not just studying it.

Life at AU

Discover. Grow. Share… Repeat.

Real life can’t be learned under a microscope. That’s why student life at AU is integral to the education journey. Every friendship, mentorship, and experience is part of the journey of discovering who you’re meant to be. Learning takes place best in the context of meaningful community, fun adventures, and challenging moments where you find out what you’re made of. To find out what Real Life: Experienced is like for yourself, schedule a campus visit or apply now!

Campus Life

Intramurals, live bands, and numerous social organizations are just the beginning of student life at AU! From Mocha’s, the campus coffee shop, to student-organized events like “AU Ninja Warrior,” the AU experience goes well beyond the classroom with plenty of fun and lifelong friendships to be made.

Spiritual Life

No matter where you are in your faith journey, there’s a place for you at AU to grow spiritually. Whether through dynamic chapel speakers, weekly floor focus groups, service with Campus Ministries, or mentorship with faculty and staff members, you can experience Real Life: Transformed at AU.

“When I first started looking for colleges, I found that AU’s community was different than any of the colleges that I visited. AU is really centered on service and this is reflected in the students, teachers, and in all of its programs. It’s influenced me as a person, as a nursing major, and in my spiritual walk with Christ.”
