The fact that the school is located in Washington D.C.
The fraternity and sorority system was kicked off campus, so it functions off campus and in an out of control manner. Its very prevalent in student life, and the school is unwilling to acknowledge...
the beautiful campus is its best asset. A great education for a great value.
The food is poor, but should be thought of in perspective.
The location is the best part of AU. Living in the Nation's capitol offers students endless array of activities, most of which are free. Also the variety in nightlife is fantastic, different...
AU will squeeze every last dollar out of you. Its typical of most private universities, but families should be aware going in to it.
The best thing about American University is the staff. Also, the student body have a good life in nice surroundings.
The online learning is limited. They only offer about 70 course with out having to actually attend a classroom.
The D.C. Metro area is an exciting and educational location to attend college. There are numerous empoyment, internship, etc. opportunities on Capitol Hill if you are interested in politics,...
For the price, you can probably do better as far as a private education is concerned. Part os the appeal is the experience of Washington D.C. and the opportunity it offers. If D.C. does not...
The best thing about American University is the atmosphere. The campus is great and so is student life. I would definitely go here again given the opportunity.
The hardest part is learning how to manage your time. It is a big jump from high school to college and being on your own means you are in charge of how you spend your time. It can be difficult to...
This is a well known and well respected school. Anyone who has this school on their resume would get a 2nd look from myself. There aren't many better schools one can attend.
This is not the prettiest, or best areas to attend. While the education is good, the money put back into the school isn't too good. School could be cleaner and the neighboring crime rate is bad.
I found the students I met were very bright and excited about the world and their place within it. I would definitely hire other students from this university.
I can't think of anything negative to say. From what I've heard from students, it's a nice school. I would recommend high school students look into attending this school.
It's in DC so if you are looking for a metropolitan location of school it's a great place. It has good political science programs.
It is very expensive and provides very little financial aide. Also, cost of living in DC is very high so should take into consideration.
American University is a medium-sized college located in upper northwest Washington, DC. It's a great school. The classes are relatively small and the professors will go out of their way to help...
This school might not be for you if following your school's sports teams is important to you. AU does not have a football team. The basketball team has done well the past two years but American...
A 4 is good for this college. The graduates are above average at work.
The only thing noticeable is the lack of seriousness in terms of career choice. Students tend to avoid stressful careers.
Location and internship opportunities--Washington D.C. is THE place to study the social sciences.
I love the political environment and the passionate professors.
There is very little school spirit, especially for athletics.
