This is Alabama A&M University Welcome to “The Hill” of Alabama and through federal funds appropriated to assist in carrying on work stipulated by the Morrill Acts of 1862 and 1890. The University is under the control of a board of trustees appointed by the Governor, who serves as ex officio Chairman.

Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University is a dynamic and progressive institution with a strong commitment to academic excellence. The picturesque campus is situated on what many alumni and friends fondly refer to as “The Hill,” only a few minutes from downtown Huntsville. The institution is a diverse and vibrant microcosm of the larger world around it. It offers a student body of approximately 6,000 numerous degree programs, including four Ph.D. degrees in Food Science, Physics, Plant and Soil Science, and Reading/Literacy. Alabama A&M is a land-grant University. It receives support from the State

The University was organized in 1875 as the result of a bill passed in the State Legislature in 1873 and through the continued efforts of its principal and president, William Hooper Councill, an ex-slave. The school opened on May 1, 1875, as the Huntsville Normal School with an appropriation of $1,000 per year, 61 students, and two teachers. Industrial education was introduced around 1878. It attracted wide attention, and the school was assisted financially by the Slater and Peabody Funds, along with private contributors. The work in industrial education was so successful that the State Legislature authorized the name to be changed to the “State Normal and Industrial School at Huntsville.” The appropriation was increased by the State to $4,000 per year. In 1891, the school became the recipient of a part of the Federal Land-Grant Fund provided by an act of Congress, approved August 30, 1890. The purpose of this fund

was to further training in agricultural and mechanical arts in the various states at the college level. The name of the school was changed again to “The State Agricultural and Mechanical School for Negroes,” and a new location was provided in Normal, Alabama, where the school would have ample room for the development of its trades and agricultural programs. In 1919, the institution became a junior college, and its name was changed to “The State Agricultual and Mechanical Institute for Negroes.” In 1939, by authority of the State Board of Education, the Institute was permitted to offer work on the senior college level. The first graduation class since 1920 received the bachelor’s degree in 1941, and on January 14, 1948, the name was again changed to “Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical College.” On June 26, 1969, the Alabama State Board of Education, the governing body of the institution, adopted a resolution changing the name of the institution to “Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University.” The University received a “Class A” rating by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools in August 1946 and became a fully accredited member of the Association in December 1963.

The Bulldogs at a Glance

Team picked to finish 3rd in the SWAC The Alabama A&M women’s basketball team is enthusiastic about the 2010-2011 season. With the addition of some key freshman and the returnees, this year’s squad should be one of the most experienced and skilled teams in recent years. This young but spirited group should have plenty of leadership and direction to work with. Coach Warmley places a high premium on hard work and dedication to the task at hand. Fans should expect a high pace of play combined with an array of defensive sets that are designed to create an exciting brand of basketball to watch A&M will be led by senior guard Whiquitta Tobar and junior guard Nesfayia Watkins. Tobar finished last season averaging 11.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game (29 games, 29 started, 37% three-point average). The Lady Bulldogs front line includes a combination featuring a stronger and experienced junior forward in Gabrielle Williams (29 games, 19 started, 2.4 points per game & 2.6 rebounds per game) and senior forward Shaurice Miller (29 games, 4.4 points per game, 53% field goal shooting, 4.3 rebounds per game). The freshmen will also be well represented. Alyssa Strickland (Guard, 5-5, Freshman, Stockbridge, Georgia, Dutchtown HS) along with her twin Brittney (Guard, 5-5, Freshman, Stockbridge, Georgia, Dutchtown HS) will add their considerable talents to the squad in the backcourt and Jasmine Sanders (Forward, 5-10, Freshman, Chester, South Carolina, Chester HS) and Clarissa Moore (Forward, 5-11, Freshman, Houston, Texas Eisenhower HS) will add depth at the post position. “Our team is young and we know there is a lot of progress to be made in order for us to be competitive in the SWAC” said the ninth year head coach. “Our motto is, all for one and one for all.” A&M also will look for major contributions from two other returning players –senior forward Chelsea Marshall (28 games, nine started, 2.8 points per game, 1.4 rebounds per game), and sophomore center NaDra

Huntsville, Ala. America’s Space Capital courses in eight cities in Alabama, begins here at the 54-hole Hampton Cove Golf Course. Hampton Cove features two championship courses surrounded by mountains and lakes. Alabama now ranks fifth in the nation for public golf courses per resident.

One of the fastest-growing cities in the Southeast, and home to one of the highest per capita income levels in the country, the hightech city of Huntsville, Alabama, which sprawls in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, is equally at home in the 19th century or the 21st. Huntsville's tourist attractions reflect the heritage of Alabama's first English-speaking city, the strife of the American Civil War, and the accomplishments of America's rocket scientists. With the influence of NASA, Redstone Arsenal, and hundreds of high-tech government industries, Huntsville's population truly reflects international cultures. Of the nearly 200,000 city residents, more than 10 percent are natives of other countries. More than 100 languages and dialects are spoken here. Visitors who want to be "astronauts for a day" can sample astronaut training activities at the sprawling U.S. Space and Rocket Center. The hands-on showcase of space technology is the state's largest tourist attraction. It is home to the internationally known U.S. Space Camp, which has franchise operations in Japan, Belgium and Canada. A variety of city museums downtown and an outstanding symphony orchestra offer rich cultural opportunities involving the arts. The legendary Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, which encompasses 21

The Birthplace of Alabama Pioneer John Hunt, for whom the city is named, occupied a cabin alongside a spring here in 1805. A town soon flourished and was the largest in the Alabama Territory by 1819. That year the leaders of the Alabama Territory met to petition the U.S. Congress to grant Alabama statehood. The recreated 1819 Alabama Constitution Village, a block from courthouse square, commemorates the historic events with tours given by costumed guides. Huntsville was the cotton trading center of the Tennessee Valley during the 1840s and '50s when planters and merchants originally from Virginia and the Carolinas built impressive town homes. Walking tours of the Twickenham historic district, with the state's largest collection of pre-Civil War homes, are popular year-round. Because many wealthy businessmen remained loyal to the Union at the start of the Civil War, the town was spared the destruction by occupying armies. America's Space Capital Huntsville was still a cotton market town of 16,437 people in 1950 when U.S. Sen. John Sparkman (who lived in Huntsville's historic Twickenham neighborhood) brought a band of German rocket scientists to Redstone Arsenal to develop rockets for the U.S. Army. By the end of the decade, Wernher von Braun's team had developed the rocket which orbited America's first satellite. They eventually put the first American in space and transported the first astronauts to the moon. Redstone Arsenal is one of the U.S. Army's most important strategic posts. It is responsible for research, development, production and worldwide support of missiles, aviation, rockets

and related programs. The influx of engineers, scientists and other technical specialists has transformed the small town into a cosmopolitan community which nonetheless maintains its heritage and reputation for hospitality. A legacy of the space program which benefits visitors is the renowned U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Guests can experience astronauttraining activities, feel simulated weightlessness and view large-screen movies filmed by astronauts in space. The Center's U.S. Space Camp attracts young people from throughout the world who spend a week experiencing space flight training and participate in mock space missions. It was Von Braun himself who inspired Space Camp. He suggested that the space museum develop an intensive youth science program to stimulate children's interest in math and science.

Huntsville is home to the Marshall Space Flight Center, Davidson Center for Space Exploration, and Redstone Arsenal
