An AU promise fulfilled.

“AU faculty and staff are fulfilling their promise to support me as a nursing major, basketball player, and student worker. My coaches want me to succeed in nursing just as much as my professors want me to succeed in basketball. They help me align my nursing clinical schedule with my basketball schedule, so I can be devoted to both passions. They also encourage me to contribute to the university. I work in the Spartan Weight Room and Fitness Center and I’m a campus tour guide. At AU, I’m learning how to manage my time and follow my passions.” – Jaylah, senior nursing major
