The Auggie Pass is an all-you-can-ride pass for Augsburg day students. Supported by the green fee, Metro Transit and Augsburg, the Auggie Pass is good on any bus, any time, and any light rail, any time, as well as the NorthStar line to Anoka.
Students can get their Auggie Pass at the Library Circulation Desk – please bring Augsburg ID.
The passes are good August 1, 2019 through May 30, 2020.
For students who use Metro Mobility, please email Mike Fetting, email@example.com. The Auggie Pass does not work on Metro Mobility, so we have Go To cards with pre-loaded $180 value – and will add more value as needed.

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, equips Twin Cities students with all the basics needed to become debaters: curriculum, coaches, tournaments, and supplies. As our high school, middle school, Spanish, East African, and financial literacy debate programs grow each year, our need for supplies grows, too.
Our goal is to equip 100 more students with debate supplies in the 2019-20 school year.
Our most-needed item is expanding file folders/accordion folders!
Other helpful items:
- 3-ring binders
- Portable timers
- 2-pocket folders
Your support will help make our debate season a success! Items can be picked up or dropped off at Augsburg University. If you’d like to join our Back-to-Debate Supply Drive, please contact us at email@example.com to arrange your donation.
If you’d like to make a donation of used supplies, please see our Amazon wishlist here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2H1YGJBDEZF6Y
