Please note that this summer’s final transit event has been modified slightly from the quick errand run to a lunch outing in downtown Minneapolis. Details are below:

UPDATED: Lunch from the best food trucks in town! – August 6th from 11:30 – 1:30 pm

Looking for a unique lunch experience? Join us as we walk to the Blue Line light rail from campus and take it downtown to the Nicollet Mall.

Throughout the trip we will offer transit tips and tricks while answering any questions participants have. Move Minnesota will provide free transit passes but participants will have to cover their lunch expenses. Travel time is about 20 minutes each way.

Laptop Scholarship

submitted by vangn10@augsburg.edu

Hi, my name is Ntsaisnag or China Vang and I am Miss Hmong American 1st Runner Up of 2019. I am a second-year at Augsburg University and I am currently undecided for my major, but I am exploring the sociology and psychology field. Within my first year, I found that having a laptop is very convenient because a lot of colleges now require you to go online and do assignments. I think that laptops are beneficial because its portable and during late nights when libraries are closed I was able to complete my assignments from the comfort of my dorm. That’s why I am giving away two laptops to help others achieve their goals.

Please spread the message and share this post!

Requirements:
-Must be enrolled in an institution in Minnesota
-Have proof of Enrollment or college transcript
-Must be a first year or second year for Fall 2019 – Spring 2020 (Undergraduate)

Deadline: August 30th, 2019 at 11:59 pm

Campus Share Shop at Augsburg, Check it Out

submitted by keenern@augsburg.edu

Members of the Environmental Stewardship Committee and Campus Cupboard are coming together to create a Campus Share Shop for the students of Augsburg! Our purpose is to create a space where students can check out goods they need, rather than purchasing new items. By doing this, we hope to:
-Reduce the consumption of material goods
-Reduce students’ costs
-Create a community space where students can take part in informal learning around sustainable practices and skill-sharing.

This is a project created by students for students, so we are reaching out to you to find out what you would want to see in the share shop. Please take a few minutes to take a short survey that will aid in creating a share shop that will properly serve the students of Augsburg.

Permit Sales FAQs 2 of 2

submitted by erchula@augsburg.edu

Permit Sales FAQs

– Am I able to get a discounted permit due to a special circumstance?

No, we do not discount permits.

– Can I get a prorated permit for Underground if I decide to purchase one later in the year?

No, we do not prorate underground permits. The reason for this is because when you purchase an underground permit you are paying for the value of the parking space, not the amount of time spent using the space. As stated in the FAQ post 1 of 2, if you decide to buy one halfway through the year, a limited number of Spring and Summer permits for Luther and Oren underground garages may be available.

– Are there City of Minneapolis permits available for purchase?

Yes. Augsburg is allotted a limited number of city permits for residential students, however, these are not purchased through Augsburg. If a residential student would like to apply for a City permit, they must get a letter verifying on campus residency from Public Safety, then fill out and submit an application to the City of Minneapolis. If you are interested in pursuing a City street permit, please email parking@augsburg.edu; residency letters are issued on a first come, first serve basis.

Permit Sales FAQs 1 of 2

submitted by erchula@augsburg.edu

Permit Sales FAQs

– Are permits available by the semester?

Yes, permits can be purchased by the semester. Surface lots are split between Fall and Spring; each semester will be half the cost of a year permit. Underground lots are split between Fall, Spring and Summer and each semester costs one third of the year permit

– When can I buy Underground permits?
If you’re a student, underground permits are available on the day you are eligible to purchase surface lot permits. If you’re Staff/Faculty, underground permits are available on Friday, August 16th.

– What is a commuter permit? Is it available for Staff/Faculty?

A commuter permit is in reference to a day student who commutes to campus and does not have on campus housing. These permits are not available for Staff/Faculty

– Are carpool permits available this year?

Yes, a limited number of carpool permits are available this year to Students, Staff and Faculty. They will be available to purchase on the same day as you’re eligible to purchase other permits. Carpool permits cost the same as regular permits (Commuter Student or Staff/Faculty), but the cost is split between those participating. Only one permit is provided for a group of carpool participants.

– I’m a 4th year student and I’m a couple credits short of being listed as a senior, will I be able to buy a permit on the Senior sales date?

No. A student’s class determination (Sophomore, Junior, Senior) is set by the Registrar depending on the amount of credits you have completed, and that information determines what date you are eligible to purchase a permit. If you believe you have been designated as the wrong class, please contact the Registrar.

Campus Share Shop at Augsburg, Check it Out

submitted by keenern@augsburg.edu

Members of the Environmental Stewardship Committee and Campus Cupboard are coming together to create a Campus Share Shop for the students of Augsburg! Our purpose is to create a space where students can check out goods they need, rather than purchasing new items. By doing this, we hope to:
-Reduce the consumption of material goods
-Reduce students’ costs
-Create a community space where students can take part in informal learning around sustainable practices and skill-sharing.

This is a project created by students for students, so we are reaching out to you to find out what you would want to see in the share shop. Please take a few minutes to take a short survey that will aid in creating a share shop that will properly serve the students of Augsburg.

submitted by matthewk@augsburg.edu

Panel: Awarding Value
Julia M. Brown, Sherrie Fernandez-Williams, and Shannon Gibney
Co-Moderated by Alayne Hopkins and Lindsay Starck
Saturday, July 20, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Hagfors 150

From the Pushcart Prize to the Pulitzer Prize, from the “Best American” series to the Minnesota Book Awards, it’s clear that literary communities are constantly comparing, judging, and awarding value. What does it mean to evaluate a text or a writer? How do we determine which book, fellowship application, script, or screenplay is the best? To what degree is literary appreciation subjective, and what criteria do we use to make these judgments? After we hear from a panel of writers who have judged and/or been judged, Jim Cihlar, publisher of Augsburg’s Howling Bird Press, will provide an overview of how the MFA student editors choose our annual prize winner and do the work of publishing and promoting the resulting book.

Julia M. Brown is Artistic Programs Administrator at the Playwrights’ Center.

Shannon Gibney won the 2019 and 2016 Minnesota Book Award in Young Peoples’ Literature.

Alayne Hopkins is Assistant Director of Programs & Services at The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, overseeing the statewide activities of the Minnesota Center for the Book, which include the Minnesota Book Awards program and other initiatives.

Lindsay Starck is associate director of Augsburg’s MFA program.

* Discover ways to further the internal work each of us must do in order to effectively confront institutions long grounded in white supremacy
* Learn from each other about the work currently being done to dismantle white supremacy, and how we can replicate that work in our own communities
* Creatively envision a world without white supremacy in which everyone can flourish

We expect our workshop presenters to create participatory and reflective opportunities for participants to be actively engaged and stimulated.

Support for students without insurance – the People’s Center

submitted by garvey@augsburg.edu

After many years of quality service from Smiley’s Clinic, Augsburg is now working with the People’s Center to provide certain clinic services to students (all academic programs) who don’t have insurance for a $5 co-pay.

The People’s Center is located at 425 20th Avenue South, one block west from Augsburg, off Riverside Avenue.

➢ With a $5.00 co-pay, the following are available to Augsburg students who do not have insurance:
● Office visits for acute or chronic medical problems
● Annual physical exams – 1 per year
● Sexually transmitted diseases screening and lab work done at The People’s Center (lab diagnostics done outside of The People’s Center are not covered).
● X-rays performed at The People’s Center
● Tetanus immunization
● Lab tests performed at The People’s Center
● Tuberculosis skin test (Mantoux)
● Casts, crutches, splints, slings and ace bandages
● Allergy injections (prescription and supply must be provided by student)
● Flu shots

➢ If you have health insurance, your insurance provider may cover medical services through The People’s Center. The clinic will bill your insurance for medical services and you will be responsible for any co-pays or deductibles associated with your insurance. You should check with your insurance provider to see if services at The People’s Center will be covered.

Smiley’s Clinic remains available for students – they accept most forms of insurance.

DPs will provide an escort to The People’s Center and/or to Smiley’s Clinic.

Panel: Awarding Value
Julia M. Brown, Sherrie Fernandez-Williams, and Shannon Gibney
Co-Moderated by Alayne Hopkins and Lindsay Starck
Saturday, July 20, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Hagfors 150

From the Pushcart Prize to the Pulitzer Prize, from the “Best American” series to the Minnesota Book Awards, it’s clear that literary communities are constantly comparing, judging, and awarding value. What does it mean to evaluate a text or a writer? How do we determine which book, fellowship application, script, or screenplay is the best? To what degree is literary appreciation subjective, and what criteria do we use to make these judgments? After we hear from a panel of writers who have judged and/or been judged, Jim Cihlar, publisher of Augsburg’s Howling Bird Press, will provide an overview of how the MFA student editors choose our annual prize winner and do the work of publishing and promoting the resulting book.

Julia M. Brown is Artistic Programs Administrator at the Playwrights’ Center.

Shannon Gibney won the 2019 and 2016 Minnesota Book Award in Young Peoples’ Literature.

Alayne Hopkins is Assistant Director of Programs & Services at The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, overseeing the statewide activities of the Minnesota Center for the Book, which include the Minnesota Book Awards program and other initiatives.

Lindsay Starck is associate director of Augsburg’s MFA program.
