Due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and out of care and concern for the health and safety of the entire Augsburg University community, we are postponing the university’s first All-School Reunion that had been planned for Sept. 26, 2020.
The reunion will be rescheduled to coincide with Homecoming 2021. Those dates are still being finalized.
If you’ve already purchased tickets to the event, you have three options. First, you can do nothing—we will honor your registration for the new date in fall of 2021. Second, you can request a refund by emailing Kristen Cooper at email@example.com. Finally, you can ask that Kristen convert your registration into a donation to the Student Emergency Fund to support current Auggies facing hardships during this challenging time.
The reunion will be an occasion to draw together alumni; current students; and past and present faculty, staff, and friends of the university to celebrate more than 150 years of Augsburg history and—most importantly—the relationships that have shaped the lives of generations of Auggies. We are also discussing ways to incorporate some of the Sesquicentennial projects by faculty and staff that were canceled or curtailed because of the pandemic.
We are grateful to the many volunteers working to make the All-School Reunion a reality, and while we know this postponement is disappointing, we promise: in the end, it will be an event worth waiting for!
