Help Diversify Campus Cupboard

submitted by

Hi everyone,

I’m hoping to receive food suggestions from students to diversify the Campus Cupboard. Augsburg faculty, Campus Ministry, and other donors have asked for specific lists of foods Students of Colors and students from different cultural backgrounds would like to see in the Cupboard. Many of the foods we have at the Cupboard are lacking the diversity we see within our students, so if I could get some suggestions from students, that would be awesome!
Here is the link:

Also, here are the Cupboard’s hours for the rest of this week and next week:
M- 8am-9:15am, 9:30am-6pm
T- 8am-12pm, 2pm-6pm
W- 8am-9:15am, 9:30am-3pm
Th- 8am-9:30am, 10am- 1pm, 3:30pm-6pm
F- 8am-9:15am, 10am-3pm

We are accepting for donations of ramen, canned soups (we’re good on tomato, so any other kinds will be much appreciated), granola bars, tuna and other canned meats, and dried pasta. Donations bins are located in the Urn/Mort lobby, at Einstein’s, in the Campus Ministry Office, and in Anderson Res Hall.
Thank you!

Janet Nguyen
Campus Cupboard Coordinator

Heritage Day with Mary Lowe Oct. 24

submitted by

On Tuesday, October 24, as part of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation series, we are excited to have Mary Lowe, associate professor of Religion at Augsburg University, lecture on: Martin Luther on the Body, Our Bodies, and the Body of Creation.

Martin Luther wrote, “There are three elements in a human, the body, the soul, and the spirit.” Many of today’s complex issues involve our bodies and the body of creation: climate change, gender and sexuality, abuse, and deforestation, etc.

Professor Lowe will introduce Luther’s perspectives on bodies and creation and examine how—even today—his theology can help us better understand and address these embodied challenges.

This event is free and open to the public, and will take place in Hoversten Chapel from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm and will include a discussion and a reception.
