AUC’s athletics programs bring together a wide cross-section of the community to create opportunities for students to meet new people and connect through extracurricular activities. We aim to enrich the lives of both students and student athletes alike to develop their best selves as athletes, teammates, students and citizens of the world. As athletes, they embody physical strength and learn the value of movement in incorporating healthy activities and habits in their lives.
Through sport, we are committed to teaching how to work collaboratively to reach performance goals, how to embrace the diversity of thought and culture, how to persevere through failure with resiliency and how to compete with integrity.
