RELAX AND REFUEL
In addition, Guyana, the largest island in the Caribbean invites students to explore its many activities and events. In one day, a student could visit the Guyana Botanical Gardens, roam the many pathways, romantic bridges and gazebos of this oasis in the morning, and then return to campus for a hands-on lab on exotic, wildlife species.
Students are captivated by the unique blend of the African, English and French cultures of Guyana. They can immerse themselves in Guyana’s rich history, dining at a local restaurant in the picturesque capital of St. George’s, as native music fills the air. Though many languages are spoken, English is the national language.
The Georgetown community has proudly embraced AAU and its students. Students and community members live at peace, with a mutual respect that is genuine and admired. In turn, AAU has become a vital contributor to the island financially and through humanitarian efforts. AAU is proud that its students, graduates and faculty are dedicated to improving the lives of both old and young on the Island.
