In the adult degree program there seems to be a lot of diversity, but I can't speak for the undergrad population.

From what I know of the immediate area, there are some nice Hispanic dining options with pretty decent food. You can go to the mall area and get more options, but they become more expensive.

The buildings are nice, and everything is within walking distance.

The campus is building a STEM school for the community to help support education. I think that is a great learning opportunity for AU students.

I don't even know if there are frats and sororities. There is nothing on campus for sure. Perhaps off campus, but I doubt it.

This school has been a great option for me, as I am an adult student returning to complete my bachelors. The classes are in a challenging 8 week format, and tutor/support is provided by appointment. Some support services have inconvenient hours and not readily available for adult students that may need after work hours. The traditional undergrads can be immature. Campus safety is compromised by the number of students with cars - there is little parking, poorly lit walkways, and of lots of speeding teenagers. I would recommend this school to adults and traditional undergrads. It's a nice, small campus with a family feel.

The athletic building is nice and open to all students. As an adult student, I don't go in there much.

I am a commuter student - I don't live or work in this community.

Health & Safety:
Students speed through the parking lots and through pedestrian walkways. I have filed a complaint, but have not seen any improvement. I am concerned about my safety in the parking lots and walkways at night.

Cost of a permit is cheap, but finding parking is a joke. Even the residential areas fill up bumper to bumper. Sometimes parking is 5+ blocks away, and poorly lit.

I am a commuter and have no idea what transportation options are available to on campus students.

I don't live on campus.

I get coffee and sandwiches sometimes from a kiosk. Nothing great, but not bad either

I am a junior and my employer just cancelled tuition reimbursement. I am just now filing for financial aid and making my way through the maze of applying for scholarships and grants. This is a confusing process, and one that is probably more confusing to me because I am an adult returning to school and I work full time.

We are located in the middle of a neighborhood, so there is not much to do.

It can be really hot or really cold.

I have only has one class related to my major so far so I do not think I know enough to rate it.

Some teachers are great, but others can make your life difficult because they do not know what they are talking about, nor are they research-based.

If you dont get there early it's very hard to find a parking spot.

Chosing a major was easy, though I already knew i wanted Psychology. But even if undecided it is very easy to talk to the advisors about certain majors.

They have a bus stop near the library. But everywhere you would like to go, you first must have car.

I received a fair amount of financial aid, but it was a long process. At one point, I thought everything was taken care of, but I was told forms were missing. So, I had to re-do a few forms that I had already submitted. I suggest checking your financial aid status regularly to ensure that all paperwork gets accepted.

MSW students are required to complete two internships. The first internship is about 450 hours or 15 hours per week. The second internship is 600 hours or 20 hours per week. These are unpaid internships. AU assists students in finding internships by providing an agency list, but students need to actually contact the agencies to set up interviews and arrange the internship. The internship experience I have had so far has been extremely helpful. The only issue is that with it being unpaid and taking up 20 hours a week, it is difficult to work part time.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find a computer to use on campus, especially between classes. However, there are many different computer labs throughout campus that are available for use. It seems to just be a matter of checking out different labs around campus. Although a lot of people either bring their own computers or tablets to do work, so they mainly just use the campus computers for printing material.

It depends on the time of day you are getting to classes. There is very limited parking. If you get to AU in the morning, you should not have much difficulty finding a parking space, but you want to make sure you get to campus early. Also, if you get there in the evening, parking does not seem to be an issue. The most problematic time is late morning/afternoon. I decided to not take classes starting in the afternoon because of the difficulty I have had finding a parking space. It is best to take a morning class, not move your car, and stay on campus for classes for the rest of the day.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
