Auggie Pass now available for day students

submitted by garvey@augsburg.edu

The Auggie Pass is an all-you-can-ride pass for Augsburg day students. Supported by the green fee, Metro Transit and Augsburg, the Auggie Pass is good on any bus, any time, and any light rail, any time, as well as the NorthStar line to Anoka.

Students can get their Auggie Pass at the Library Circulation Desk – please bring Augsburg ID.

The passes are good August 1, 2019 through May 30, 2020.

For students who use Metro Mobility, please email Mike Fetting, fettingm@augsburg.edu. The Auggie Pass does not work on Metro Mobility, so we have Go To cards with pre-loaded $180 value – and will add more value as needed.

New Inside Augsburg Calendar Launching August 26

submitted by grewe@augsburg.edu

This month, Augsburg is launching a brand-new unified calendar (inside.augsburg.edu/calendar). This new calendar allows the University to integrate a number of already-existing institutional Google Calendars and display them on the same platform. Students, staff, and faculty will also be able to submit events manually to the calendar. This calendar will replace the previous calendar on the Inside Augsburg homepage starting Aug. 26.

This new calendar is the result of advocacy from Day Student Government to streamline events and announcements at the University. During fall semester 2018, a number of meetings were held with key event planners and calendar managers around campus to identity challenges to the current calendar system and how to move forward. Based on those discussions, a team was created in the spring to move forward with the creation of a unified calendar system. This team consisted of:

Michael Grewe, Campus Life (Chair)
Sarah Cash-Darvell, University Events
Jami Kadolph, University Events
Scott Krajewski, Information Technology
Stephen Jendraszak, Marketing
Gita Sitaramiah, Public Relations and Internal Communications

The Augsburg University Calendar Policy can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cF1lOy49sS54CZ26kcx27Wy0-OH9ZJsL4IU6TjIlT1c/edit?usp=sharing

Questions about this new calendar can be directed to universitycalendar-mgmt@augsburg.edu.

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.
