Warhawk Spotlight: Vallely weighs options on stage, screen

Senior theatre and communication major Brittany Vallely has honed her acting talents through Theatre AUM and continues her career on stage immediately after graduation. However, an internship opportunity in broadcast journalism has presented her with additional options.

Learn more about Vallely’s opportunities in the AUM Pressroom.

South Africa study abroad offers hands-on learning

Biology major Mike Norris wanted a study abroad opportunity that would provide experiential learning in the field. From up-close encounters with elephants and snakes to experiences with indigenous people, Norris’ experience in South Africa has enabled Norris to “break away from a traditional classroom setting” while experiencing different cultures and developing new professional skillsets.

Learn more about his study abroad experiences in the AUM Pressroom.

Join Army ROTC in honoring Sexual Assault Awareness Month by wearing jeans to work and school.
