BAU is located right at the political and cultural center of the nation’s capital, just two blocks from the White House. Centrally located, BAU students are able to travel to and have access to all of the wonderful attraction the city and area have to offer. The Director of Student Services organizes and announces events, field trips, and excursions for students. Students keep up with all of the activities offered on BAU’s website and student bulletin boards on campus.
We understand students have different needs and interests, so we have various activities, events, and clubs available, including sporting, theater, and concert events, museum visits, book club, cooking club, volunteer work, social hours, holiday parties/potlucks, and many more!
Being a diverse community, the department of student services organize events such as workshops and social activities to raise awareness of different cultures, inclusion, and tolerance. Some examples are celebrating Lunar New Year, Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, and other religious festivities. Student services host events to educate about domestic celebrations such as pumpkin carving for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas Tree trimming, and Christmas Holiday Party.

I love the experience here at Bay Atlantic University. The university is in the center of Washington D.C., the capital of the US. My friends and I have a wonderful time here at BAU and love the learning experience. It is really an honor to study in a high quality university that gives us top notch education, paving the way for success in our future careers.
I love the fact that the university is so diverse.
The professors at Bay Atlantic University are diverse, not only in terms of their international backgrounds, but also their professional backgrounds. Being able to hear how the theories connect to their real-life experiences has been invaluable to my studies.
It is great to be a part of such an international environment in my everyday life because it has provided me with a different perspective of the world. And now I have good friends from many different countries.
After completing the MBA Entrepreneurship program at BAU, I feel more confident in taking the next step towards starting my own business.
Great location, great staff, and great learning experience. Qualified teachers with an extended work experience.
It has been a great experience here at BAU. Especially learning from the professors who are great and very helpful at any given circumstance. They are always friendly.
I had great professors who taught me important skills and concepts that I applied daily in my job. These skills helped me to grow and stand out in the company I work for. The location and the building are awesome, providing great experiences. The student body is very diverse; great to learn about different cultures.
