submitted by weisss@augsburg.edu

Work to install the Augsburg University and cross A signs on top of Mortenson Hall is progressing. The original, Augsburg College sign was removed during the week of July 17. At the end of this week, the facing will be patched and repainted. Then, at the end of the month, a crane will be used to install new signage. Installation is weather- and equipment-dependent. Full details are available on the University Name Change Updates page.
