LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

After months of reorganizing The American Word in an effort to accomplish our mission of connecting the AU community, we proudly present you with our first issue of the 2013-14 school year. From a 2,000-word profile on a noteworthy alumna to hitting on the fall fashion trends, we’ve touched on a plethora of subjects that are important to you. We value your feedback so email us at amwordmagazine@gmail.com to let us know your thoughts on the magazine.
