Campus Traditions

If you see inflatable games or hear live music coming from somewhere on campus, chances are, AUM’s Campus Activities Board is behind the scenes making the fun happen. These are some of our favorite traditions:

Welcome Week:  We kick off the first week of classes with daily activities and events for students in order to help you get acquainted with all the aspects of life at AUM. Free food, entertainment, workshops and the annual Student Resource and Involvement Fair are just a few of the many offerings available for you.

AUMFest:  A themed day of fun and free food for students! AUMFest is held each fall as a welcome to campus for both new and returning students, brought to you by the faculty and staff of the university. We provide food, activities, and snacks throughout the day. The evening is capped off with a movie and free refreshments.
AUM Homecoming:  A celebration bringing together alumni, students, faculty and staff as well as members of the community. Events during this week include alumni activities, entertainment sponsored by CAB and SGA, a pep rally and the Homecoming basketball games, during which the AUM Homecoming King and Queen are crowned.
Mardi Gras:  A day-long celebration with food, activities, live music and novelties. Food, activities and entertainment are provided at a late-night social and Mardi Gras royalty are presented to the AUM community.
Greek Week:  A week of activities, food and events such as Step Show, Meet the Greeks, God/Goddess competition, Greek Stroll and Dance. The week is capped off with the awards recognition program. Greek Week is open to the whole campus community.
SpringFest:  It’s a great time to have fun and bask in the spring sunshine in the quad. This event provides free food for students at lunch and dinner and offers activities including a rock-climbing wall, live music, games and novelties.

Shriek Week: AUM loves to celebrate Halloween in style – after all, our colors are orange and black!  This week of frightful fun includes events such as a costume contest, haunted house, creepy crafting, and plenty of free food and candy.

Harvest Moon Festival: The entire community is invited to this fall celebration, which features unique items, from cupcakes to jewelry, for sale from local merchants. Stay warm with games, freebies, live music, and much more!
