Please join me in welcoming Elizabeth Kästner, who is starting at Augsburg this week as a new creative associate for design! (Denielle Stepka also continues in that same role.) Elizabeth brings many years of experience as a graphic designer, and particularly in higher education—she has worked both at the University of Minnesota and, most recently, at the University of St. Thomas.
I look forward to the creativity and energy she will bring to our work! Elizabeth can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Honors Program once again needs interviewers for honors scholarship candidates. Interviews will begin again on January 8 and run through February 2, Monday through Friday, whenever classes are in session. There are three interview slots each day. 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.
