American University: Revisted

A trip to DC isn't complete without a trip to AU! I hadn't been on campus in 5 years and it's always amazing to be back and see what's changed. I forgot how gorgeous the campus is, especially in summer with flowers everywhere. It's crazy to think that it's been 16 years since I started as a freshman and 12 since I graduated!

 I explored a few of the new buildings that have been built in the last few years and just meandered around. One fun change was the lower level of the bookstore is now a hip cafe. It was the actual textbook part, I guess no one uses 100lb textbooks anymore...? The new science building is just stunning, a far cry from the former science hall that was built in 1896! It's always good to be back, as we say once an Eagle, always an Eagle!

What a beautiful campus, Tamar! And how fun to go back and see how much it has changed. I am actually heading to my college area (Lehigh University) next weekend. I haven’t been back there in many years and I am excited to see what it looks like now!

I used to live in Severna Park MD and never went to AU but knew people who grad from there. Fun to see the campus

Whenever I walk the streets of DC, I wonder what it must be like to be a student there!

What a beautiful campus! I was surprised when my son started college last year and found that ALL of his textbooks are online. Though I definitely miss the reduced price "used" books since that's no longer an offer when renting them online!

Beautiful. I grew up in Alexandria yet I don’t think I ever really toured the AU campus. I drove past there, and I did tour GW when my daughter was considering schools.
