Beware of “Toner Phoners”

submitted by suter@augsburg.edu

There are several unscrupulous businesses out there who attempt to sell you outrageously priced toner over the phone. We have already gotten a call from someone (mis)representing themselves as our vendor – Marco, and referencing our new fleet of Sharp copiers. They may start with asking you what is the model or ID# of the copier near your desk. They may say they have extra stock of the toner you need or the price is due to increase. They may offer to ship you a toner on trial. Regardless of what they say, don’t give them any information. All you need to know is that you get toner for your copier or printer by calling the Copy Center at extension x1054. You will never need to purchase toner for machines in your area. A quick way to ditch these “toner phoners” is to tell them you would like to transfer them to the person in the organization who purchases toner – they will hang up before you can transfer them!

Seniors and Recent Grads: Live Abroad for a Year after College

submitted by tetzlafa@augsburg.edu

The Fulbright Student Program fully funds students to study, research, or serve as an English teaching assistant abroad for a year (no teaching experience required!). During their year abroad, Fulbrighters meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing participants to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.

Past Augsburg students have been selected for Fulbright Awards to countries such as Czech Republic, South Korea, Ecuador, Malaysia, Peru, Turkey, Taiwan, Kenya, Poland and Germany (and more!), and six Augsburg graduates will be going abroad this upcoming year as Fulbrighters! Augsburg’s focus on cross-cultural engagement and community involvement makes Auggies particularly strong candidates who are well-prepared to make the most of a Fulbright experience.

Competitive applicants will have a GPA of a 3.4 or above. Please contact urgo@augsburg.edu or stop by Hagfors 101 to set up an appointment in July!
