"When I applied to American University, it ranked top 10 in its international relations programs. I can easily say that I benefited from every resource provided by the school. Almost all my professors were PhD professionals who worked in their respective fields and brought their expertise to the classroom. I could comfortably approach any of them for assistance for a subject matter, or regarding recommendation for internships, or even connections at their institute. Located in the capitol city, the university encouraged every student to secure internships that would build their resume for the near future. For this task the career center was a phenomenal resource. They held career fairs every semester in which hundreds of employers were matched with students for internship and jobs. I received my first internship this way and couldnt have done it with the help of these programs. The career center helped so many other students attain this goal. Additionally, majority of the students studied abroad to broaden their horizon. The university provided dozens of country options for students to study in a safe and secure location. I was able to study in England and Jordan for my major of international relations and economics, without increasing any cost to my current tuition to the university. I generously received a scholarship and grants through the help of the financial assistance and scholarship services department. I also received a fellowship to study over the summer at Princeton university with their help. Genuinely, it was one of my best decisions to attend American University for my undergraduate degree. I have been able to excel to my full potential with all the opportunities provided by the school."

"American university is a great place for highly ambitious young people with an interest in global affairs. In fact, the trend of global affairs exist throughout the university, in all areas of study. The university reflects Washington, DC in that people are very politically aware and liberal. Professors lead challenging courses and always have a background in the field of study. Financial aid is disappointing, however if you make a point to push for any assistance you can get more."
