AU Class of 2015 Graduates this Weekend


American University will hold graduation ceremonies this weekend, bringing an influx of proud friends and family to the neighborhood. The schools of Public Affairs and Communications, along with the College of Arts and Sciences will confer degrees on Saturday, May 9. Commencement ceremonies at the Kogod School of Business and the School of International Service will take place on Sunday, May 10.

AU will have additional shuttle buses running between the Tenleytown/AU Metro station and the university campus, with buses departing the metro station every 10 minutes. The school has also arranged for a special discount from the Uber car service for those attending graduation.

Even with the university’s efforts to manage traffic and encourage the use of public transportation, expect the area around American University to be extremely busy. Consider taking alternative routes if driving this weekend.

And if you see a grad while you are out walking or riding the Metro, don’t forget to congratulate them.
