AUM women ready for ‘Super Tuesday’

Tonight’s “Super Tuesday” Gulf South Conference tournament home game marks a program milestone for the AUM women’s basketball team.

When the Warhawks host West Florida tonight at 5:30 p.m., it will be their first time hosting a GSC tournament game and first time playing in the league tournament since becoming a member of NCAA Division II.

AUM (19-9 overall, 17-7 conference) enters the week ranked No. 7 in the NCAA South Region rankings. There’s plenty of incentive to pack the house: The first 400 students will receive free Chick-fil-A, while admission will be free for everyone.

Business students are up to the ‘challenge’

A College of Business student team reached the finals of the CFA Institute Research Challenge, a global university competition that provides intensive training and testing on financial analysis, professional ethics, and analytical, valuation, report writing and presentation skills.

AUM’s students finished among the top five in the event, which was recently held at Kennesaw State University. Students began preparing for the challenge in November and presented a financial report based on an analysis of the Southern Company.

The team, which included Arjun Brar, Aryavardhan Singh, Aditya Tewari and Ajay Sadhanala, was accompanied at the competition by College of Business faculty members Juntai Lu and Tewhan Hahn.

“It was a proud moment for the whole team when CFA Institute announced the finalists and seeing our team as one of the finalists,” said Sadhanala, a graduate student in Management Information Systems. “All of us felt proud that we got to represent AUM on this level.”

Vaughn earns honors at journalism conference

a group of people looking at a screenAt many universities, student-driven research emerges at the graduate level. On our campus, undergraduates have opportunities to explore the topics that matter to them, challenge assumptions and explore new ways of thinking. Freshman communication major Devin Vaughn recently earned top research paper honors at the Southeast Journalism Conference held at Troy University.

Vaughn’s article, “The Importance of Moonlight’s Healthy Depiction of Masculinity,” won first place in the student research category. Vaughn’s academic interest is public relations. SEJC was founded in 1986 by journalism professors in efforts to encourage greater interest in student journalism and to create ties among journalism programs at universities in the Southeast.
