Augsburg University Kick Off – September 5

submitted by

As we draw closer to the official launch date for Augsburg University, we hope that campus is getting excited for an exciting day on September 5. In addition to welcoming our incoming first-year students at Opening Convocation, we’re also planning a series of activities to take place immediately following the Convocation. We hope you will join us for the fun. Here is some information you’ll find helpful in planning your participation:

9:30 a.m.: Opening Convocation

Please note the time change for this event to begin one hour earlier than in prior years. Due to space constraints in the chapel, there is seating available only for our first-year students, their AugSem leaders and the faculty who will be processing. To accommodate others that wish to be involved, we will be hosting a livestream viewing of the entire event in Sateren Auditorium for all staff, community members, and current students.

10:30 a.m.: Kick-Off Celebration and Lunch in the Quadrangle

Everyone is invited! For those not planning to attend the Opening Convocation, please plan to join in the festivities and line up outside of Foss and on the sidewalk along 22nd Avenue by 10:20am to welcome our incoming class and the livestream audience as they recess from the event and to kick off the name change activities with some special performances and a fun “parade” to the quad!

Food stations, musical performances, games & other activities will be set up throughout the quad. Community members will be able to have Augsburg University logo t-shirts screen printed onsite, participate in a photo-booth, volunteer to assemble hygiene kits for the Health Commons and participate in some fun games with colleagues and friends.

11:30 a.m.: Formal Program, Quad

1:00 p.m.: Conclusion

First year students and others participating in the day’s community service projects will begin departing around 12:30pm. Remaining community members are welcome to enjoy the event and activities until 1:00 p.m.
