A 7-day Journey for HIV/AIDS Awareness

"/argosyuniversityblog/image.axd?picture=%2f2017%2f12%2fadam_yerke.jpg"

Adjunct faculty member Adam Yerke is embarking on a 545-mile journey this June. But instead of taking a car or a plane, he’ll be traveling on his bike. From June 2 to 8, 2013 he will bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles along with thousands of other cyclists and volunteers to raise awareness and funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Since 2001, AIDS LifeCycle (ALC) has raised more than 60 million dollars and helped to educate thousands of people about HIV/AIDS. Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $3,000, although many riders raise more. According to the ALC website, 1.7 million Americans have been infected with HIV since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in 1981, and more than 617,025 have died of AIDS-related causes.

Adams says, “This is a disease that transcends all demographics, including age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, race and gender identity. It impacts all of us, even if only indirectly for some. Because of my own personal and professional relationships with those living with HIV/AIDS, I am inspired to raise money and help support people living with HIV/AIDS.”

All money raised at the annual event goes to two of the nation’s largest HIV/AIDS organizations—the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

Adam is an adjunct faculty member in the College of Undergraduate Studies at Argosy University, Online Programs.

Introducing Campus Common Mobile 2.0


The wait is over: Campus Common Mobile 2.0 is here!

Mobile site screen

Log in today to the Campus Common (mycampus.argosy.edu) from your smartphone or tablet to access this easy-to-use mobile site. View your grades, upcoming assignments, and campus or class announcements; read and respond to discussion questions; and call or email key contacts with one click.

If you’ve already been using the mobile site at m.argosy.edu, you can continue to use this URL to access the redesigned and more robust Campus Common Mobile 2.0. If you prefer to view the full site, you’ll still have that option as well.

The mobile site is a convenient way to access the Campus Common when you are out and about, but you’ll still need your computer for attending class. The mobile site is not designed to be your primary tool for going to school.

When you’re done checking out the new mobile site, log in to the Campus Common on your computer to see the redesigned Top Stories area. We hope the changes we’ve made to the Top Stories area will make it easier for you to find and read the announcements that interest you.

Helpful Resources

For more information and FAQs, view the Mobile Campus Common Version 2.0 Student Guide. Please also feel free to contact your Academic Counselor with questions about the Campus Common Mobile 2.0.
