Every month the Alumni Relations Office records the alumni who stay engaged with the campus by volunteering their time. This information assists the college in securing grants and other funding for the University. If you or someone you know has brought back an alumni to volunteer in your classroom or at an event this month; please email email@example.com with their name and how many hours they volunteered.
We are looking for any alumni who have volunteered already in the month of March or will be volunteering before April 1st. Please email me if you have any questions. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our records up-to-date!

Help us send off our graduating seniors at the U.S. Bank Stadium this year! Annually we rely on staff, current students and alumni to assist with rehearsal and the successful and smooth flow of the event.

More about our speaker: Ben Stottrup

Since then, he has enjoyed a front row seat to watch and assist Augsburg’s science majors start their careers and pursue their own adventures. While at Augsburg, he has built a research lab focused on biomaterials, soft, and squishy interfaces. This work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Minnesota Space Grant Consortium, as well as private donors and foundations. In the classroom, he has taught across nearly the entire physics curriculum with a focus on how experiential education in science labs can build professional skills for students. Through his Science of Food and Cooking course he hopes to share his curiosity and interest in biomaterials to Augsburg’s wider community.
