Stories for life
Why AU? What makes AU distinctive?

Walking through the Valley, involving myself in campus life, attending chapel services, and engaging with our current students, I have been reminded of the answers to these questions. Beyond the outstanding programs, beyond the award-winning majors, beyond the success of our alums, my observations and conversations tell me that our distinction has everything to do with relationships.

I have witnessed and experienced what it means to come alongside students. I have seen faculty and staff go the extra mile to encourage students, to help them, and to process life with them. I have seen and experienced students bearing one another's burdens, loving, and caring for each other.


Whether at an alumni event talking with our beloved AU alums or on campus talking with our students, the common themes to many of the stories have everything to do with the relationships they have developed or are developing.

AU remains a safe place to allow our students to process, to wrestle with, and to grow in areas of faith, academics, and their own persona. It's a place where the pages of our students' stories are sometimes dog-eared, tattered, and sometimes torn but where redemptive stories often begin.

I'd love to hear from many of you as you remember these "growing up years" at AU (or AC). Please share your best memories with us at Share Your Story.
