Dear Students,

“Your success is our business,” is more than just a slogan to the faculty and staff here at AUM. We sincerely want you to be successful and, to that end, are busy updating and adding new student services to benefit you. However, we need your help.

Did you know that only 50% of US students who enter college actually graduate, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education? This is a disturbing statistic, especially since college graduates will live longer, be healthier, and make more money over the course of their lifetime. The benefits of an AUM college education are far reaching.

In order to make that dream a reality, we need you to be fully engaged in the AUM experience. We need you to:
1.              Utilize Degree Works

2.              Register with Warhawk Jobs, CareerBeam and CareerShift

3.              Utilize the services provided by the College of Business, Office of Student Engagement & Success, and the University.

4.              Participate in College of Business student activities

We know your schedules are already jam packed, but this is important. Each of these services will help you to maximize the full value of your AUM education and move you closer to that coveted college degree. If you have any questions, or need help, contact the Office of Student Engagement & Success at BusinessSuccessCenter@aum.edu or 334-244-3479.

In closing, we just want to know one thing - RU Handlin’ Business?

Sincerely,

The Office of Student Engagement and Success

Friday are free!

by Megan Hughes | Jan 08, 2015
Kind of an odd benefit of going to AUM that you think about when enrolling is the layout of class scheduling. AUM operates on a Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday class schedule. What this means is that when you have a Monday holiday like Labor Day or Martin Luther King Jr. Day, you get Monday and Tuesday off! It sounds like a nice little perk especially if you make a habit of keeping yourself busy 24-7; having those two days off means that you get a nice breather right at the beginning of the school semester. You can use that time to catch up on school work or better yet, spend time with you friends and family. Also, that class schedule layout means no class on Friday! That's right, your Fridays are free. Your Fridays being free means that you can now get the extra hours at work, or go to that party, or meet up with some of your friends who you haven’t seen in a while—maybe do all three? This is obviously not the reason I chose AUM, but I can tell you it certainly a nice benefit of my decision.
