Students at the American University of Cairo (AUC) have direct access to a wealth of cultural opportunities. The Cairo Museum - the world's richest repository of pharaonic antiquities, the pyramids of Giza, the tombs of Saqqara, and the myriad mosques of medieval Cairo are all within easy distance. Study abroad students have a unique opportunity at AUC to experience the wonders of Egypt while studying with Egyptian and other Arab students under the guidance of some of the best scholars in their areas. AUC's New Cairo Campus spans 260 acres and offers cutting edge facilities, classrooms and labs to 5,500 students and 1,500 faculty and staff from Egypt and around the world. The $400 million campus - located in the heart of the suburb of New Cairo - also includes on-campus residential housing for non-commuting Egyptian and international students; spacious indoor and outdoor athletic, sports and recreational facilities; and new Cairo's first public, 20-acre park. See what the New York Times had to say about AUC in a recent article titled "A Campus Where Unlearning Is First"
