Needing something “cool” amidst our hot summer? Well then this is the event for you!
Presented by Norway House (and supported by Augsburg University and Global Minnesota) join a free virtual AND/OR an in-person discussion with 2020 Going Viking Honoree Liv Arnesen. She will present her new book “Skiing Into the Bright Open,” detailing her solo journey to the South Pole; a solitary adventure in the bleak and beautiful bone-chilling cold of Antarctica.
Arnesen’s book tells a story of gritty determination, thrilling achievement, and perseverance in the face of near despair and daunting odds.
A moderated discussion, including Q&A, will be led by Global Minnesota President Mark Ritchie, so come prepared with your questions and wonders.
Augsburg University will have access to this discussion POST event (recorded). Any professors interested in sharing this story with their students for academic purposes, should connect with Bettine Hoff Hermanson (email@example.com).
Mode: Virtual and In Person (your pick)
Date: Thursday, August 12
Time: 6 p.m.

A new semester is just around the corner, and luckily we are expecting new international students to join us this fall—representing countries like Malaysia, Nigeria, Italy, China, Norway, and Bangladesh to name a few!
Our office, the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS), is looking for faculty and staff members who are interested in hosting our new international students for a dinner off-campus in your home.
Here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, August 25, 2021
Time: Pick up at 5 p.m. with a return to campus around 7 p.m.
We ask that our hosts pick up students from campus and return them once dinner is completed. The new incoming group will consist of 20+ international students.
COVID status: All the new international students coming from abroad are required to follow the CDC and MDH guidelines, with a required 7-day quarantine (unvaccinated students), and COVID testing on day 3-5 upon arrival.
All students will show proof of a negative COVID test prior to traveling to the United States (tested 72 hours before departure), proof of recovery and/or proof of vaccination.
Any students needing quarantine, will have ended this period on August 25. And will have been offered to receive their first dose of the vaccine.
