Degree: Terrorism and Counterterrorism Operations
Graduation Year: 2015

American University offered a highly specialized degree utilizing experienced professors that yielded a strong graduate program. The campus was small but beautiful and ran free AU shuttles to various points around town making getting to and leaving campus a breeze. Overall the experience was phenomenal and I would highly recommend it.

Degree: Public Relations, Advertising, and Applied Communication
Graduation Year: 2013

The internship opportunities are great, but the students on campus are not incredibly friendly and the administration does nothing to lower the total cost of tuition/room/board. It's a incredibly expensive education. You would be better off going to a state school and coming to DC for the summer internships.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

My college and graduate education have empowered me to become the person I want to be, and have given me the tools to succeed in my chosen profession. That said, my education at private colleges and universities came at a great cost (I am nearly a quarter-million dollars in debt), and I am still facing difficulty entering the job market as a recent graduate. I think that a college education is important to succeed, but that the current system of student loans and unending debt has got to change. For what I owe in student debt, I could own two houses in the town where I grew up, but instead I have a great education and a great amount of stress and uncertainty in my life.

Degree: International Law and Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2008

American University (AU) isa great place to learn. but you must be proactive, advocate for yourself and make sure to build a challenging and well balanced course load, take advantage of internships, study abroad, and definitely the honors program and capstone projects.

Degree: Jewish/Judaic Studies
Graduation Year: 2010

I enjoyed my experience at American. I loved that it had a real college while being situated in the city. The academic level of the classes were a good match for me, and I liked that the classes weren't too big for me to form a relationship with professors. There is kind of a large presence of Greek life on the campus, which I was surprised by, but I certainly didn't have any trouble finding friends not involved in Greek life. One piece of advice--it doesn't matter how prestigious a reputation a college has...it matters much more if its a good fit for YOU.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2010

It's a mid-size school in the middle of a great city. The campus is beautiful and the students are for the most part very friendly, intelligent, and active politically.
