The Honors Program once again needs interviewers for honors scholarship candidates. Interviews will begin October 23 and run through February 3, Monday through Friday, whenever classes are in session. Go to the Honors Interview Scheduling form to sign up.

If you are selected to interview at a particular time/day, we will notify you several days before the scheduled interview. At that time, we will also send you a link to a brief training video (15 minutes), and ask that you review this before you conduct the interview.

Even doing one interview helps tremendously. Thank you for doing your part to recruit great students to the Honors Program and the University.

Food Service Extended Hours Pilot Update

submitted by ahrensj@augsburg.edu

As we analyzed the numbers of customers dining from 7-8 PM during the month of September, we have concluded that we will not be able to continue with the extended dinner hour. We will return to the normal 7 PM Commons closing time effective Monday, October 9.

The other hours changes made at the beginning of Fall semester have been very successful, so we will continue to open at 7 AM Monday-Friday, and extend hot food lunch until 2 PM Monday-Friday. Please let Daniel Meyer (dmeyer@aviands.com) know if you have any questions or suggestions in the future.

submitted by truem@augsburg.edu

LET’S WORK TOGETHER FOR PEACE TO GET PATRIARCHY OUT OF OUR SYSTEMS!
Please join us for this exciting event at Augsburg on Mon., 10/9 at 7:30 pm. Carol Rojas, a feminist resistance leader in Colombia, will lead an interactive workshop where she will invite us to learn about women constructing peace in Colombia.

Marshall Room,1st fl., Christensen Center

Objective: To foster a space for exchange and reflection that makes it possible to share the experience of popular feminism and antimilitarism in the search for the construction of possible scenarios for hope, democracy and peace in Colombia.
Working Questions: What emerges in Colombia after the peace process? How does popular feminism contribute to the construction of peace? What are the challenges of an anti-militarist vision in the face of the end of wars? Why did the armed conflict originate in Colombia? What do we know about the peace process for Colombia?
This workshop is co-sponsored by General Education, Languages and Cross-Cultural Studies, History, the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Sabo Center. This event will prepare us to begin thinking about the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Forum at Augsburg that will honor Nobel Laureate and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

Heritage Day with Mary Lowe Oct. 24

submitted by glasere@augsburg.edu

On Tuesday, October 24, as part of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation series, we are excited to have Mary Lowe, associate professor of Religion at Augsburg University, lecture on: Martin Luther on the Body, Our Bodies, and the Body of Creation.
Martin Luther wrote, “There are three elements in a human, the body, the soul, and the spirit.” Many of today’s complex issues involve our bodies and the body of creation: climate change, gender and sexuality, abuse, and deforestation, etc.
Professor Lowe will introduce Luther’s perspectives on bodies and creation and examine how—even today—his theology can help us better understand and address these embodied challenges.
This event is free and open to the public, and will take place in Hoversten Chapel from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm and will include a discussion and a reception.
Questions? Email us at ccv@augsburg.edu
