Aurora University (AU) creates an educational environment where students prepare for lives of leadership, meaning and success. Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood, just a short distance from Chicago, its close-knit campus community provides students with many opportunities.

Students can choose from 40 undergraduate majors, 35 minors and 14 graduate programs, all of which cover liberal arts, nursing, education and social work. The small classes, which average about 23 students, offer a chance to study one-on-one with an experienced and knowledgeable faculty.

Students looking for a greater challenge can enroll in the Honors Program, which combines advanced coursework with innovative classes and special events. The popular May Term is a three-week program that allows students to gain experience in their fields or to study abroad.

Outside the classroom, students can further their education through a variety of clubs and community service partnerships. More than 50 musical, literary, religious, social and service organizations provide on-campus activities in everything from professional development to student governance.

Other off-campus service projects are available, such as My Time, a tutoring program which links AU students to nearby elementary and middle schools to offer one-on-one homework help for young children struggling with academics.

AU Athletics offers 10 varsity sports for men and nine for women. The Spartans have earned an impressive 46 Division III conference titles in recent years.

AU’s active theatre and arts programs serve the campus as well as the community. Through the Celebrating Arts and Ideas series, community members, teachers and students alike enjoy various concerts, lectures, museum exhibits, film and theatre events.

Since 1893, Aurora University has been helping students to gain the education, leadership and skills to achieve their dreams and positively affect their communities. ❚
