AU Network Nick and Garrett Bernardo, 2016 | College of Business

A Journey of Success

You may be a prospective or current student waiting to see where God will lead you or an alumni who has already ventured out into the world. Either way, you don’t have to go through your journey alone. That’s why we have created the AU Network: so you can stay connected and be inspired by those who have gone on the journey before you. The AU Network is designed for you to read about what other alumni have been up to and to give you the chance to update us about your journey. Students, you can find alumni who are already working in your field and make professional connections before you graduate. We invite you to be a part of AU Network today!
