United Warhawk Ambassadors

The United Warhawk Ambassadors (organized by the office of International Student Involvement and the ISA) provide an AUM friend to incoming international students during their first two months on campus. Most international students arrive a few days prior to classes beginning, and for many, this may be their first trip to the United States. Prior to arriving on campus, each student will be assigned an ambassador. Ambassadors are current AUM students that will help ease the transition by meeting students regularly to answer questions, introduce new students to services on campus and in the local community, as well as familiarizing them with the campus.

AUM Women Lead Society

Women who choose to study at Auburn University at Montgomery now have an additional incentive to become a Warhawk. This organization is helping female students solidify their footing on campus while preparing them for success in the workplace and in life.

Each member is paired with a mentor — a female administrator or professor — and each month the students take part in professional development that encourages growth in areas of leadership skills, global intelligence, networking, mentorship, and the development of commitment to community service and civic engagement.
