COVID-19 updates

These are particularly uncertain times as Auburn University at Montgomery students, faculty and staff adjust to challenges to the challenges COVID-19 presents not only for our campus community, but to our city, state, nation and world.

Please continue to visit our COVID-19 web page for developments pertaining to course delivery, campus services and university operations, public health and safety. We are also continuing to update our Student FAQ and Employee FAQ sections and encourage students to utilize our Warhawk Help portal to alert us to specific questions or needs

Managing stress in the face of uncertainty

Anxiety comes with uncertainty. Concerns of COVID-19 have changed dynamics within workplaces, disrupted school routines, resulted in business closures and made us rethink our grocery store visits. How do we take care of ourselves and each other?

AUM Counseling & Health Promotion Services Director Greta Chambless offers guidance on how to maintain mental wellness.

Adapting your fitness routine

Daily routines, including morning visits to the gym or evening Pilates classes, have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. AUM kinesiology assistant professor Angela Russell offers guidance on how to remain active while avoiding crowds.

Try rebooting your fitness routine!

Passing the time during a pandemic

Burned out on Netflix and movie apps? AUM chemistry professor Nick Thomas, an avid freelance writer, offers a variety of low-tech activities that will help pass the time while practicing social distancing from home.

Option one: Build your own lava lamp. Choice two: Make your third-grade teacher proud by memorizing the state capitals. Get the full list!

People of AUM: Pepper Martin

Diversity, location, supportive faculty, engaging coursework. Those represent a few of the qualities that stood out to 1998 AUM alumna Pepper Martin, who worked in a variety of industry settings before returning to campus to serve as a marketing strategist for the university. This is her story.
