A promise to build your life around what matters

“At AU, I discovered I want to become a teacher. I also further pursued my passion for music while I continued to be involved in Spartan Athletics. Over winter break, I wrote my first composition for guitar and performed it during a student recital in the spring. I don’t feel limited at AU. I can prepare to teach, take music lessons, and run on the cross country and track and field teams. I can do the things that matter to me.” – Francis ’24, History and Secondary Education major
