Where in the World is Asbury University?

 

The Alumni Office is often asked where in the world do AU alumni live? The answer is "everywhere"!  And if you count our travels then we're more than everywhere.

What follows are photographs sent to us by alumni.  We'd love to have your photos to post here as well.
If you have one you would like to share with us, please send it to alumni@asbury.edu along with a brief description of where the photo is taken (even if it's obvious) and who the Asburians are in the photo.
