Untold Stories of Andromeda: A Multi-wavelength View of The Nuclear Environment in M31

The Andromeda galaxy (M31), which harbors the nearest LINER and the closest stellar bulge accessible in the optical, is an ideal laboratory for studying the physical regulation of galactic nuclei, and in turn the co-evolution of super-massive black holes and their host galaxies. I will provide an overview of the stellar and interstellar components of the M31 bulge, as well as its dormant but otherwise well-known SMBH, M31*. I will introduce our on-going multi-wavelength campaign, including fresh observations taken by the CAHA, in order to advance our understanding of this unique galactic nuclear environment.
