The Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention has been canceled for 2020 due to COVID-19. Please see the article linked below for full details.

The Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention Steering Committee has announced that the 2020 Fiddlers Convention and corresponding Concert Series have been canceled due to COVID-19.

“The Fiddlers Convention is a much-anticipated event each year, and we are disappointed that we must cancel it for 2020,” stated Rick Mould, event organizer. “However, we feel moving forward with the Convention would not be in the best interest of our competitors, judges, entertainers, guests, or event staff.”

Please read the linked article for additional information. Mark your calendars for the 2021 Convention, scheduled for Thursday, September 30, 2021 through Saturday, October 2, 2021. We can't wait to celebrate with you all then! 🎻

Due to COVID-19 and the current "Safer at Home" Order in Alabama, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Homecoming celebration. However, we hope you'll make plans to attend next year, when we will celebrate class anniversaries for 2020 and 2021! #AthensForever

Homecoming is always an exciting time on Athens State’s campus. Every year, we look forward to gathering together to enjoy a meal, catch up, and reminisce. However, due to the pandemic and the current “Safer at Home” Order that exists in Alabama, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s event until Homecoming 2021, where we will celebrate class anniversaries for both 2020 and 2021.

While it is disappointing to not have the event this year, the health and safety of our Athens State community is our top priority. We look forward to celebrating with you next summer during our 2021 Homecoming celebration. Until then, stay safe, and keep in touch!

Athens State Business Alumni. What should I expect of the curriculum of MG 480 Seminar in Business and MG 420 Business Policy in the Fall?

Hi Athens State University , I am looking for a few students that are willing to help me improve an awesome new university app. This app aims to organize your online studies and university life. In order to make this app even more awesome, I need some real user feedback! This is where you come in. I would love to book a 30minute catch up to show you my design and get your thoughts. So, if you are interested in helping me out, please sign up here: https://4sv338eq.optimalworkshop.com/questions/kly3e7c1 I will also pay 50AUD to any student that forms part of this feedback session, as I value your time. Thank you and looking forward to meeting you! 🙌
It’s sad that classes are online for right now, but I hope everyone is doing well during this time! I’ve seen a lot of different suggestions for what to do during social distancing, and I wanted to share a movie streaming platform that I’ve really liked. It’s called Film Festival Flix; it’s a website where film festivals post the movies they have shown in the past or will show on the website. I’ve seen a lot of great ones that I wouldn’t normally have gotten the chance to see if they’re not on other streaming services, and it’s been a great way to spend the extra free time I have. I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something to watch; I hope this has helped with some quarantine boredom!
