“WOW, just WOW!  I cried tears of joy 🙂  Thank-you will NEVER be enough for finding me deserving of this award.  My two boys gave me a group hug and said “Our prayers worked mommy”, as they prayed for me every day since I submitted my application. I feel honoured that you would also select me to be featured in the AU[SU] newsletter, double wow!!!!” – comment from AU student award recipient


“As an Ontario student, I greatly appreciate AUSU’s advocacy on our behalf on this matter. The changes to grant/loan funding will greatly impact my me and my colleagues. Your efforts speak volumes about your care and concern for your students, and I am very appreciative of this. “ – comment from AU student by email regarding Ontario student funding advocacy

Just wanted to offer congratulations on the new AUSU site. It has a great new look and feel and seems very user-friendly… Great work to all who were involved in this initiative.” – comment from AU staff member following new website launch


“First of all great job on introducing the podcasts. I listened to them throughout last week and this week and it’s an awesome idea. I feel it definitely connects the students more with AUSU and the council members since we’re all spread across the country and abroad. Second, the updated website is fantabulous! The updated version looks amazing and super easy to navigate. Great job overall.” – comment from AU student by email


Thank you so much to AUSU for planning this event. It’s nice to connect with students since I’m a distance education student, really helped me feel like part of the school community.

“Thank you so much for the Lynda.com subscription. I am able to complete professional development for my CPA over the summer months! I especially am pleased to see ethics courses given a new requirement to have 4 hours each three-year reporting period.” – comment from AU student by email


“I just want to send a message of thanks and appreciation for the work you’re doing over at AUSU. The executive team is solid and I feel you’ve been excellent advocates for all AU students. Everyone contributing to your site and outreach opportunities deserves kudos, I see a lot of effort going into that and it’s exactly what many of our students need: connection. Keep hitting it out of the park, AUSU!” – comment from AU staff member by email


AUSU Rocks!

I’m happy to say that I will remain will AU because of the excellent support I received.” – comment from AU student by email


“I think it’s great that even though I am an online student I have all the same benefits and access as a traditional student.
