Reminder: First Year Move-In Day is Friday

submitted by

First Year move in is on Friday Aug 30 which means there will be some added traffic and parking restrictions on campus. Lots A and D will be reserved for those moving in on Friday; any cars remaining in lots A or D after 2 am on Friday August 30th will be towed to lot L.

Roads on the east side of campus will also be difficult to navigate due to barricades in place to assist with move-in (Butler Pl, 23rd Ave, 22nd Ave, 7 1/2 St, and 7th St). Please plan accordingly when moving around campus and if you are able to, enter campus on the west side to avoid the barricades (8th St, 21st Ave and 6th St).

We encourage Staff and Faculty to utilize Lot L for parking, or to check with your supervisor if you are able to work from home if you are not participating in move-in festivities.

Please visit the Residence Life website for a map of the move-in route to help plan travel (link below).

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 during the afternoons of September 4th, 5th, and 6th. 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. Likewise, Riverside Singers intending to continue in that group are also exempt. 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 Augsburg student who has not previously been involved in our choirs.

Please take careful note of these audition procedures:

1. Sign up for your audition appointment 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. Auditions will be heard as follows: 9/4, 3:00-6:00; 9/5, 3:00-6:00; 9/6, 2:00-6:00.

2. Arrive outside the choir room (M3) at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment 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 at 5:00 pm 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.

Nota bene: If you are a first year or new transfer student music major, you will be required to choose a Thursday audition appointment.

We look forward to hearing you!

With a $5.00 co-pay, the following are available to Augsburg students who do not have insurance:

The clinic will bill your insurance for medical services and you will be responsible for any co-pays or deductibles associated with your insurance. You should check with your insurance provider to see if services at The People’s Center will be covered.

Smiley’s Clinic remains available for students – they accept most forms of insurance.

Augsburg Works: Career Readiness Events and Programs

submitted by

Did you know that 71% of employers will be hiring 2020 interns and new employees during the fall semester?

Many of our students do not realize employers have early recruitment timelines. In fact, some employers start recruiting as early as August! Many employers will be making final hires by early November so it is crucial for Augsburg students to be aware they need to act now.

The Strommen Center is teaming up with departments, student organizations, and colleagues across campus to launch Augsburg Works, Sept 11- Oct 18, to ensure all students are aware of employer recruitment timelines and are prepared for the application process.

All event and program information can be found on Handshake.

Are you hosting any professional development or career readiness events for students?

Celebration and Send-Off for Rachel Svanoe Moynihan

submitted by

Come join the Sabo Center as we celebrate our dear colleague Rachel Svanoe Moynihan, who is departing Augsburg for an exciting new opportunity at HECUA. Rachel’s work and person has made innumerable impacts on the Augsburg community, from the establishment and stewardship of the Cedar Commons space to LEAD Fellows, interfaith work, organizing in Cedar-Riverside around youth leadership, arts and social change work, cultivating key community partnerships, and SO much more. We are thrilled for Rachel as she embarks on this new adventure, but we will sorely miss her keen questions, compassionate presence, generous listening ear, spunk, creativity, and all-around excellence.

Come for delicious treats, good conversation, and to say goodbye and good luck to Rachel on Wednesday, September 4, from 1:30-3 p.m. in the Sabo Center (LL Anderson Residence Hall).

Very brief remarks will be given around 2:15 p.m.
