Flight Week | AUM

Flight Week

When you start a new semester at AUM, Flight Week kicks off each new semester with dozens of events to welcome new and returning students. 

Flight Week is a campus tradition that gets the Warhawk Spirit soaring and helps students bond and reconnect with each other by interacting with student organizations and campuswide services. Flight Week helps you:

  • Get yourself into the campus community
  • Learn about clubs, organization, and student government offices
  • Develop skills and knowledge for your success as a student
  • Learn what’s expected of you as an AUM Warhawk
