Aurora University welcomed several new faculty members to campus this fall, adding to its diverse community of educators. A few of them offered their first impressions of AU and thoughts on helping students to discover what matters.
From the first days of classes to good times on the quad, there were plenty of campus activities during opening week of the 2014-2015 school year. As students connected with the campus, they also learned about opportunities to be involved at AU during the Involvement Fair, a fun showcase of campus clubs and services.
With the arrival of fall semester, the excitement is building for another year of the Celebrating Arts and Ideas series at Aurora University. More than 25 free events will be presented on the Aurora campus during 2014–2015, featuring well-known actors, accomplished musicians and expert guests and faculty speaking on a variety of topics.
This week approximately 600 new freshmen from 29 different states are joining the AU family as well as nearly 400 transfer students. To meet the needs of new and returning students, the university is undergoing a series of enhancements that are sure to have a positive effect on academics and campus life this year. Watch the summer project work in action as the magic of time lapse condenses three months into less than three minutes.
Aurora University announced today that it will open a new center for learning near the main campus. Classes will begin this summer at the Aurora University Orchard Center, a facility that includes nine classrooms, a computer lab, a lounge, and both faculty and administrative offices. The building is conveniently located less than five miles from the main Aurora campus at 2245 Sequoia Drive in Aurora, near the interchange of I-88 and Orchard Road.
