Athletics: We don't have varsity sports at AUR. There are girls and boys soccer, volleyball, crew with Italians.

Campus Housing: No on campus housing, but then that why I came to Italy!

Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: There is no dinning hall on campus, but there are lots of bars and restaurants in the area. Plus your in Italy! the food is Yumm!

Health & Safety: 0 crime on campus, everyone knows everyone! Campus is next to the American embassy to the Vatican so there are always police near by protecting the embassy.

Doc on campus is nice, helpful and FREE!

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: There is no need for campus transportation, as its all on one little area. If you want to go any where you can go on the bus, or take a train outside the city to the beach or mountains.

Guys & Girls: International mix of guys and girls is nice. But I am dating an Italian, after all I am in Italy!

Computers: Only gets crowded during exam time. But everyone I know has a laptop so....

Academics: Its all very easy, and I know I can always ask the Prof something. There are no TA's.

Campus Strictness: There are no dorms. They have off campus apartments for us. Most of us have only lived in them for the first semester then move out. I liked the apartment because I was not living surrounded by other students. I did not come to Italy to hang out with Americans all the time. Each apartment has a full kitchen so I got to cook my own food and save money.

Weather: Rome is nice and you can leave the city easy and explore Europe!

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The school is small, but that is what I like. There is a garden area where you can hang out. There is a huge park really close where you can go running or have lunch. The library is peaceful and has a garden as well where you can study in the spring and summer. The computer lab has booth Dell and Mac, color printers, copiers and a helpful computer staff. They are always willing to help you even when you have problems with your personal laptop.

Academics: The business department is great! I have been able to participate in onsite classes where we meet heads of various companies in Rome. One of the greatest things is being able to meet and interact with people who are actually leaders in the field. I traveled to Genoa and Sicily as part of one credit courses. The professors are always willing to help you if you have questions. Classes are about 15 people so it is easy to ask questions. There are no TA's so you know that the teacher is actually reading and grading everything you turn in. I did an internship at the Food and Agriculture association of the UN. There were other opportunity for internships at NATO, the Italian Parliament, the World Food Program.

Drug Safety: Student life condones open bar activities, the end of the year parties are giant binge drinking fiestas, if you don't drink you WONT have friends at AUR... its as simple as that

Majors: I was admitted into the International Relations program, and I don't believe it's particularly difficult whatsoever. Same goes for any other program/major here.

Majors: It's just a liberal arts college with 9 majors, so very little options there. The internships I've heard are good, with options like NATO and the UN.

Scholarships: The overall tuition isn't bad for an American University, plus I automatically received an academic scholarship which brings it down even further. The school gives out loans which apparently don't always come on time, but I haven't heard of anyone receiving need-based grants.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There's only one computer lab with both PCs and Macs. Some days it's packed and others you can get on a computer with ease. The tech support people are helpful, and there's wifi everywhere on campus which is usually reliable. I think a laptop is necessary for work a home though.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is definitely better than on-campus when it comes to cost and location. There are lots of cool, old apartments for rent in fun neighborhoods. It's just hard to find ones which allow students and landlords who speak a little english.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: We really do have resident students from all over, so looks are a wild card. I'd say that there are most attractive girls than guys, and very few attractive guys whatsoever. Everyone dresses well at AUR. Lots of hipster style and some cliques. I haven't been particularly impressed with the people here; there are few outwardly 'friendly' people.
