AUM Athletics, College of Nursing and Health Sciences to Host Blood Drive

BY: Jessica AlldredgeMontgomery, Ala. Nov. 11, 2020 In a time where everyone needs a little help, there are a lot of ways that AUM students can provide that help. Students can find little ways to give back to the community. Sometimes that means giving of their time, and sometimes that means giving of themselves. In this case, students have a chance to give of themselves literally. AUM provides many opportunities throughout the year for students to get involved and help out their fellow man (or woman). This includes frequent blood drives on the main campus. There will be a blood drive on campus on Tuesday, November 17 from 10am to 4pm hosted by AUM Athletics and the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Students wanting to donate blood will find the bloodmobile next to t...

Universities Waiving SAT and ACT Scores

This caused over 1,000 universities to waive the standardized test for admission, including AUM. AUM temporarily waived the ACT and SAT requirements for both Summer and Fall 2020. Back in April, AUM Chancellor Carl A. Stockton told Alabama News Network, “By waiving the ACT and SAT test requirements, we will ensure that every student has the opportunity to pursue their academic dreams without any further hardships.” Incoming freshmen and transfer students are still required to meet the other requirements for admission.

However, due to COVID-19, the annual event will look much different. In early September, Macy’s announced that although they were moving forward with plans to put on the annual parade, the event would be limited to a TV-only event; it is the first time a move like this has been made in the nearly 100 years the event has been held.

Theatre AUM and COVID 19

BY: Jayla BrownAUM’s campus looks completely different for everyone this semester. There has been a lot of change, which means a lot of adjusting to our “new normal”. This week I had the opportunity to catch up with Professor Neil Seibel about the changes happening in the theatre department. When asked about adjusting to COVID-19 guidelines here at AUM, Seibel said, “We are adjusting. Theatre and the arts have always been about adapting to the circumstances, so in an odd way our students were rather uniquely prepared to handle the shift to hybrid experience.” Many classes, activities, and club meetings on campus have been moved either strictly online or partially online. As for the theatre department, Seibel stated, “Instruction has moved to in-class and simulcast, m...
