Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3-4:30 p.m.
(There will be no Career Quick Stop during Spring break; call 612-330-1148 for individual appointments)
These drop-in hours are designed to expand access to career coaches and to accommodate impromptu student career questions as they arise. During Quick Stop hours students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis for brief, 15-minute drop-in appointments. These times are meant for quick career questions, brief resume or cover letter reviews, or help getting started with an internship or job search.
Quick Stop is not intended to replace longer appointments, and we regret we cannot accommodate career assessment requests during Quick Stop hours (please schedule an individual appointment: 612-330-1148).

Have you heard about Augsburg College’s Senior Film Keystone class? We are making a short independent film called “Medallion.” Our film is about Ben who is seven years into his sobriety, and loses his wife to a car accident forcing him to come to terms with his alcoholism without his anchor. He is faced with the decision to either forget the life that he has built with her or face reality and continue to honor her memory. With our film, we hope to combat the stigma surrounding alcoholics and addicts in film as we build a new narrative.
To help fund our film, we have started an IndieGoGo, and we are officially halfway past our $2,000 goal with 11 days left. Please check out the site at the link below, and donate as you are able.
Your donation would help us rent equipment, secure locations, costume our characters, feed our cast and crew, purchase insurance, and submit our film to festivals.
If you would rather, please follow us and share our page on your social media!
As you see fit, please pass this message along to people that would be interested in donating or following us on social media. We want to reach as many people as possible!

This past Monday, Augsburg hosted the 7th Annual Math Jeopardy competition in front of an enthusiastic audience. Students from Augsburg, Concordia-St. Paul, Macalester, and St. Thomas competed. Macalester won the competition, and Augsburg finished one point away from a tie for second place. The questions featured calculus and discrete math topics as well as categories like presidential math and math in the movies. There was even an entire category on how Ryan Gosling expresses himself with math (thanks to Miles Ott). In keeping with tradition, no alternative facts were used.
Many thanks to Unbounded math club officers, AlexAnn Koecher, Bob Laskowski, Nazih Safi, Hannah Whitington, and Thomas Kukowski, for helping organize the competition and also to the Augsburg mathletes who participated: Lidiya Ahmed, Lexander Boukal, Alice Coffman, Stewart Hagen, Lewis Istok, Bob Laskowski, and Alex Sushko. A very special thanks to Matt Haines for compiling the questions and then being the master of ceremonies.
