Snow Business

Questions have arisen about UMA's procedures with respect to campus closing due to storm or other emergency situations. Some students have wondered, "If I have a 9-11:45 AM class, and the campus is closed until 10 AM, am I expected to show up for the last two hours of that class?" The answer is "no." Classes and all other activities and events that are scheduled to start prior to the UMA opening time will not be held. If you have a class, activity or event that is scheduled to start at the opening time or after, then you should make every reasonable attempt to attend. We realize that students travel from different regions of the state and that the weather conditions significantly vary from one region to another. Students are encouraged to use their best judgment regarding their local travel conditions.

Employment, Volunteer & Internship Opportunities

Looking for Tutors

The Augusta Tutoring Center needs Math, Science, Human Services, Psychology, and Business Tutors for the Spring. You don't have to be a genius in the subject to be a tutor. Students who have had to work at a good grade are often better tutors than students who just "know" the answer and can't explain the process. If you have taken a course and gotten a B+ or better you might be eligible to be a tutor. Please contact Judith DeMilo Brown for more information.
