Campus Traditions

If you see inflatable games or hear live music coming from somewhere on campus, chances are AUM’s Campus Activities Board is behind the scenes making the fun happen. Here are traditions that you might soon find yourself a part of:


AUMFest: A themed day of fun and free food for students! AUMFest is held each fall as a welcome to campus for both new and returning students, brought to you by the faculty and staff of the university. We provide food, activities, and snacks throughout the day. The evening is capped off with a free movie and refreshments.
AUM Homecoming: A celebration that brings together alumni, students, faculty, and staff as well as members of the community. Events include alumni activities, entertainment sponsored by CAB and SGA, a pep rally, and the Homecoming basketball games, during which we crown the AUM Homecoming King and Queen.

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day: Constitution Day and Citizenship Day- Constitution Day and Citizenship Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who, are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens.  AUM programming will be held annually on September 17, unless the 17 falls on a weekend or holiday. In those instances, activities will be scheduled on a weekday prior to or after September 17.

Greek Week: Open to the whole campus community, a week of activities, food, and events such as Step Show, Meet the Greeks, God and Goddess competition, Greek Stroll and Dance. The grand finale is the Awards Recognition Program.
