Please join us for a Story Circle – the first step in creating a new Music-Theater piece about the Augsburg community, past and present, to be performed in the Fall of 2019 in celebration of the Sesquicentennial. We want to hear your stories about Augsburg, whether as staff, student, faculty, coach, neighbor, associate, or as an advocate or activist. If you have worked for, attended, or been involved at Augsburg in any capacity we’d love to meet you and hear whatever you’d like to share about your experiences. This is an opportunity to tell us the stories that are sometimes forgotten or left untold.
Our first Story Circle takes place Friday, September 21 at 7:00pm in the Anderson Music Hall Choir Room, M3. Space is limited to 25 people. To reserve your spot, please RSVP to Sonja Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. If you or someone you love is struggling with thoughts of suicide, please know that there are many resources for support available on and off campus.
From Half of Us.com: “Many of us have had moments when we don’t want to go on or think we just can’t deal with how we’re feeling anymore. Sometimes those thoughts go further and people start thinking seriously about ending their lives. If you or someone you know has reached that level of hopelessness, you have to speak up or reach out for help now. You aren’t alone in those feelings and there are ways to feel better.”
If you are feeling hopeless or overwhelmed, the Center for Wellness and Counseling encourages you to come in to meet with one of our counselors. Call if you can, or just come in, and tell the front desk that you need to be seen right away if you don’t feel safe. (8-4:30 M-F) 612-330-1707.
24/7 CWC Urgent After Hours Phone Support If it is after office hours and you are in urgent need of counseling support, you can call the Center for Wellness & Counseling’s Urgent After Hours Phone Counseling line. Just call CWC’s regular number, 612-330-1707, and choose “option 1” (available whenever CWC is closed, 24/7, year-round).
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255
