University Name Change: Save the Date for September 5 Celebration

submitted by

All Auggies — students, faculty, and staff — are invited to the Augsburg University Kick-Off on September 5. The day will include traditional and new experiences for the full community and is intended to be a festival-like atmosphere as we officially become Augsburg University.

The schedule includes:
–9:30 a.m.: Opening Convocation in Hoversten. The Opening Convocation, for incoming students and AugSem leaders, is starting earlier than previous years to accommodate the 10:30 a.m. festival in the Quadrangle. Faculty and staff are asked to line up at 9:20 a.m. to applaud students as they process into Hoversten Chapel for the Opening Convocation.
–10:30 a.m.: Kick-Off Celebration and Lunch in the Quadrangle. Food stations will be set up throughout the Quadrangle. Community members will be able to have Augsburg University logo t-shirts screen printed onsite, participate in a photo-booth, make hygiene kits for the Health Commons, and check out a special “reveal” on Science Hall. Large-party format games, stilt walkers, and more are part of the celebration.
–1 p.m.: First-Year Student Service Projects

All faculty, students, and staff are encouraged to set aside a portion of their day to join the festivities and celebrate!

EDOR NELSON FIELD: New padding and windscreens will be ordered for Edor Nelson Field. The screens will be branded and will reflect the colors of Augsburg University — maroon and grey. Please see the University Name Change Updates page for a design mock-up of the field wind screens, as well as for updates on monument signs, social media, Mortensen Hall, and more.
