First-Year Program

First-Year Support Designed to Help You Succeed
At AU, our first-year student program is designed to ease the transition from high school to college. Our primary goal is to help students succeed in and out of the classroom. Students learn to balance the demands of college life, become acquainted with their new campus surroundings and make new friends through:

  • advising sessions
  • topical seminars
  • mentoring programs
  • social activities

The first-year program at AU has been recognized nationally as a model program and was recently selected for a national project called "Foundations of Excellence in the First College Year.”
