"We have found numerous benefits in our daughter living on campus at AUS and that's why we chose the residential halls. Living on campus has provided her with a sense of independence and responsibility. It has allowed her to navigate college life on her own, manage her time effectively, and make important decisions. The residential halls offer a safe and secure environment, ensuring her well-being and giving us peace of mind as parents."
