Saudi Arabia is a country in transformation; its economy is the third fastest growing after China and India. Riyadh is an attractive, modern, and vibrant city. It is the political, economic, and cultural hub of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Coast Countries. Because of the large, well-established expatriate community, English is widely spoken by service providers at retail outlets, schools, hospitals, and other establishments. The climate in Riyadh is comfortable during the fall and spring semesters like what you might experience in the Southwestern part of the United States, very much like Tucson and Phoenix, AZ. There are many world-class educational options for the children of AU faculty. The proximity of Saudi Arabia to other Middle Eastern, European, and Asian popular travel destinations makes it an ideal location for someone that also would like to experience new cultures.
