Congrats to Chelsea Kelley on being awarded Rising Star

Graduate Assistant Chelsea Kelley was awarded the Graduate Assistant Rising Star Award. The Rising Star Award was established by the Recognition and Partnerships Subcommittee of the SEAHO Graduate Issues and Involvement Committee. The award is presented to an outstanding graduate student who has demonstrated dedicated service to their department and home institution while excelling academically and professionally and remaining committed to the students they serve.

“Chelsea provides consistently top performance in all areas of her work. She works with a lot of our external groups/campus during the summer and her superior work is also noticed and constantly given accolades by these groups/clients. The areas that she is responsible for have improved because of her stellar performance,” stated those who nominated Kelley for the award.

Save the Date: Day of Giving Proposals

There is a $10 attendance fee, and students must sign up for the camp by registering for BIOL 0006 for fall term.

Calling All Move-In Volunteers!

It’s that time again! Summer has flown by, and it’s time to start thinking about the fall semester. Housing is excited to welcome their new and returning residents, but in order to do so they need your help! Housing is calling for all organization or individual volunteers that would like to assist residents as they move their belongings into the residence halls.

The returning students will be flying back into their nests on Fri., Aug. 17, and new students will be landing for the first time on Sat., Aug. 18. Residents will be allowed to move-in between 9 a.m.–3 p.m. on both days.

This is an excellent opportunity to meet new students, connect with potential members for your club or organization, and make a positive impact on the AUM community. This year, volunteers will be encouraged to wear shirts or logos with their AUM organization or department branding in order to better show our residents all of the exciting opportunities AUM has to offer.

Volunteers will receive a free lunch and a gift identifying them as an AUM Housing volunteer. If you or your organization is interested in participating, please register using the appropriate link below. If you have any questions, please email Housing and Residence Life or call 334-244-3296.
