Professor Lauren Skinner took nine students to New Orleans in March for the annual AMA International Collegiate Conference.  At this conference, students from over 150 schools came to showcase their AMA activities and achievements.  We sent nine UAB students: Amy Musick, Amber Atkins, Katie Mozingo, Christy Lewis, Nisha Patel, Patrick Tatum, Morgan Stone, James Oliveira and Dave Karr.

The event kicked off with the exhibit competition.  The theme for our booth this year was “Sweet Home Alabama.”  At this booth, our students distributed sweet tea that Milo’s donated. They gave away the sweet tea in individually decorated Mason Jars and there was a long line to get the tea. We had two students playing guitar; of course the most requested song was “Sweet Home Alabama.” They also had a bunch of clothing (flannel shirts, hats, overalls, dresses) for people to dress up in and have their picture taken.  The students were directed to our website to retrieve the pictures later.
