There is more to your college experience, of course, than what you learn in the classroom. Your personal experience in school will be unique, whether you are living on campus or going to school at night after work. And you’ll grow during your time at AUM in ways that are hard to predict.
While you’re here, you’ll find countless opportunities to expand your experiences far beyond the classroom. From Student Government to Greek Life, from clubs and organizations to intramural sports, you'll have every opportunity to pursue your passions or find new ones. What you’ll discover is that the things you learn outside of the classroom have just as big an impact on your life as the courses you study. You’ll build relationships and gain experiences and develop essential leaderships skills that will prepare you take on the life you choose with confidence.
You are making a significant investment in time, effort and money to finish your education at AUM. It is our job to create exceptional learning experiences for you, to foster a spirit of diversity, inquiry and critical thinking. We want our students to become innovative, ethical leaders who make a difference in the global community.
Students who are involved in at least one activity are more successful post graduation
Athletics and Recreational Sports
Sports are a big deal on campus at AUM. We are currently transitioning toward full NCAA Division II membership in the 2019-20 season after many successful years at the NAIA level, which featured 25 national championships. We currently sponsor 11 varsity sports — men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis, baseball, softball and volleyball — and compete in the Gulf South Conference. We have a rich history of great teams and cheering on the Warhawks is a big part of campus life!
