Visit the Village

When you’re an AU Viking, your village is a 100-acre tree-lined campus located at the center of the state’s largest city. It’s the center of Viking life – where cultures mix and mingle, lifelong friendships form, learning and discovery abound, memories are made, traditions are celebrated, and perspectives evolve.

Visit us and experience our village first-hand.
