Alpha Mu Gamma, The National Collegiate Foreign Language Honor Society, recognizes students' achievements in foreign language study. AMG holds its annual initiation in April for students with a 3.0 minimum overall GPA, and at least two grades of "A" in unrepeated college courses in one foreign language.
At Augusta University, the society recognizes an outstanding student in French, German, and Spanish at the annual induction ceremony which is held in the spring semester of each year.
The purpose of this organization is to provide an outlet for the creative literary mind. We host meetings, spoken word events, writing groups meetings, and yearly trips. The goal of the Augusta University Creative Writing Club is to promote an enjoyable environment for writers of all types.
We aim to not only produce an enjoyable atmosphere, but to also produce better writers through our writing group and spoken word events.
