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

Less is more

by Megan Hughes | Jan 08, 2015

Here's a pro-tip, don't overdo your schedule. Sounds simple enough, right? Even still I find myself getting way over booked by getting involved in a lot of programs and on top of work and my regular class schedule. The sad bit is that I find myself getting overwhelmed on a weekly basis, and I swear that I'll stop over extending myself. Of course, I will still end up doing it all again then panic because I don't think I can manage it all. The important thing to remember for me is that it should all pay off in the end. Getting involved seems like too much to handle, but when you sit down for that job interview and your perspective employer asks about you college experience, you'll want to tell them about all you were able to accomplish in school. This is, at least, what I remind myself whenever I get upset over how busy I am staying during school and outside of school. The key is to find a balance to strike between being busy and having free time, a balance which I have yet to find. Fortunately for me at AUM, I can talk to plenty of professors or fellow students about any problems I am having while juggling life.
