Tuesday tips!

Do you have some overdue books hiding under your bed, in your car, or at the bottom of your backpack? If so make sure you return them asap. Severely overdue books can result in a hold on your transcript, the inability to add or drop a course, and even a hold on your diploma. However, soon after you return the item(s) and pay a small overdue fee, all holds will be removed. So please make sure you have returned all items, and if you’re unsure call the circulation desk, 256-216-6669!.

It's Women’s History Month! And Athens State University would not be the place it is today without Mrs. Mary Norman Moore McCoy. She is the only person to serve two terms as president. The first was 1904—1916 and later from 1925-1930. She graduated from Huntsville Female Academy at 16, took classes at Harvard Business School, and was President at Athens before she was 30 years old. She is the last woman to serve as president of the university. During her first term, Mrs. McCoy prepared a detailed historical report for the board of trustees, later entitled History of Athens College, Athens Ala..#AthensStateUniversity #WomensHistory #AthensAl #AL200 #AthensStateArchive
