Faculty: Request a Study Abroad/Away Class Visit Today

submitted by

As part of the University’s increased internationalization efforts, the Center for Global Education & Experience staff are visiting classes across campus to spread the word to your students about the many study, internship and research options available to them both abroad and off-campus around the US.

Can you spare 5-10 minutes in your class(es) in Fall semester for a message about study abroad/away programs? If so, please request a visit to your class online!

We can customize our message based on your course content, and on your majors’ needs and interests. We can address questions about scholarships, various length programs (some are better for WEC/AU students, STEM, Honors, athletes, etc) and other issues you might identify. And as always, we are happy to provide content to AugSem’s with a full class period on the topic of study abroad/away.

Important Announcement About Choral Placement Auditions

submitted by

The Augsburg choral faculty will be hearing placement auditions for Cedar Singers, Riverside Singers, and the Augsburg Choir on September 5th, 6th, and 7th. All University students are eligible – and heartily welcomed – to audition. If you were in Augsburg Choir last year, you are accepted to continue in AC this year, and there is no need to take these auditions. But we want to hear you if you are:

-a First-Year student.
-a Transfer student.
-a previous member of Cedar Singers
-a previous member of Riverside Singers seeking consideration
for Augsburg Choir.
-a returning student who has not previously been involved in our choirs.

Please take careful note of these auditions procedures:

1. Sign up for your audition slot in Anderson Music Hall. Between the band and choir rooms, M2 and M3, you will find a bulletin board where the sign-up sheets will be posted.

2. Arrive at least 15 minutes early at the choir room (M3) to access and complete the intake sheet and music-literacy assessment. (Never fear: we will use this assessment to inform our work with you, not to exclude you from participation.)

3. There is no need to prepare any song performance for this audition.

4. Results will be posted by Saturday morning on the same bulletin board where you found the sign-up sheets.

5. If you have questions, please contact the Music Office at or (612) 330-1265.

To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, the Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE) and Global Minnesota are co-hosting a “Year of South Africa” event in the Hagfors atrium on Thursday evening, September 6, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. All Augsburg faculty, staff, and students are invited.

The president of Global Minnesota recently traveled with an Augsburg group to CGEE’s South African program sites, a visit that coincided with a Minnesota Trade Office mission to South Africa and a well-publicized tour by the Minnesota Orchestra, the Minnesota Chorale, and Minnesota Public Radio. We expect that people from all these contingents will join the event, making for a lively atmosphere. President Pribbenow and the South African consul general are also expected to attend.
