Interview prospective students for Honors

submitted by

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

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 ( know if you have any questions or suggestions in the future.

Diversify Campus Cupboard and other important information

submitted by

Hi everyone,

I’m hoping to receive food suggestions from students to diversify the Campus Cupboard. Augsburg faculty, Campus Ministry, and other donors have asked for specific lists of foods Students of Colors and students from different cultural backgrounds would like to see in the Cupboard. Many of the foods we have at the Cupboard are lacking the diversity we see within our students, so if I could get some suggestions from students, that would be awesome!
Here is the link:

Also, here are the Cupboard’s hours for the rest of this week and next week:
M- 8am-9:15am, 9:30am-6pm
T- 8am-12pm, 2pm-6pm
W- 8am-9:15am, 9:30am-3pm
Th- 8am-9:30am, 10am- 1pm, 3:30pm-6pm
F- 8am-9:15am, 10am-3pm

We are looking for volunteers on Tuesdays from 12pm-2pm, Wednesdays 4pm-6pm, and Thursdays 1pm-3:30pm. If you’re interested let me know! The shift could be an hour long or however long you’re able to volunteer.

We are also accepting for donations of ramen, canned soups (we’re good on tomato, so any other kinds will be much appreciated), granola bars, tuna and other canned meats, and dried pasta. Donations bins are located in the Urn/Mort lobby, at Einstein’s, in the Campus Ministry Office, and in Anderson Res Hall.
Thank you so much for the support so far.

Campus Cupboard Coordinator
