MORTENSEN HALL: The new signage on Mortensen Hall is being installed. Last week, the top of the building was repainted. This week, letters were being installed. The crane will be on campus today to remove old letters. If you haven’t looked up from the Quad in the past few days, be sure to do so! The lettering looks fantastic and is just more proof that in only 29 days, we will be Augsburg University!
Additional information about becoming Augsburg University is available on the University Name Change Updates page.

The 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Forum is fast-approaching! This year the Nobel Peace Prize Forum will be honoring the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet, and their work creating peace during a tumultuous time in Tunisia’s history. World leaders, activists, civil rights leaders, and many others will be gathering at the Forum to promote peacemaking and create a dialogue among both the local Twin Cities community and the greater global community.
Students and staff can attend the Forum for free! The Forum is held at Augsburg from the 13th-16th of September. If you would like to attend the Nobel Peace Prize Forum you can register as a representative or a delegate at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum website: http://nobelpeaceprizeforum.org/
As a student, you can be more involved in the Nobel Peace Prize Forum by signing up to be a host for visiting students! Students from other colleges and universities will be visiting the Twin Cities for the Forum from the 14th-16th of September. If you live on campus and can offer space to sleep, you would be the perfect host!
