Fire Alarm Testing on Campus

This Friday, Sept. 28, Johnson Controls will be testing the fire alarm systems in the Library Tower/Administration buildings, Taylor Center, and Technacenter between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.

The tests will include audio and visual warning devices, followed by an announcement over the Public Address System advising “Testing the Fire Alarm,” to avoid any preventable evacuations.

Author Anthony Ray Hinton Meet and Greet, Conversation

The AUM Office of Diversity & Inclusion is hosting a Meet the Author and Conversation with Anthony Ray Hinton.

Hinton is the author of New York Times bestseller The Sun Does Shine, which chronicles Hinton’s 1985 arrest and wrongful conviction of the murders of two fast food managers. In 2015, he was exonerated after spending 29 years on Alabama’s death row.

At the book club meeting, Hinton will share a vivid portrait of his journey to freedom, the legal system, and how his faith sustained him on death row.

The third annual Day of Giving, which is a special 24-hour social media driven fundraising initiative, is set for Thursday, Feb. 14.

If you are interested in being a part of Day of Giving, please complete the project submission proposal form and send it to Marie Harrington. The deadline for submissions is close of business on Monday, Oct. 1. If your project is chosen, the project managers will be notified by Tuesday, Oct. 9.

If you have any other questions about Day of Giving, please email Marie Harrington or call 334-244-3596 or 334-399-4850.
