Campus Box Closing/Forwarding

submitted by

Two weeks after the spring semester ends (May 15th) we will be closing all student campus boxes. Before fall semester starts we will be reassigning them to all students living on campus, and commuter students can then request to have a campus box if they have a need of one.

If you would like your mail forwarded or would like to keep your mailbox open for the summer please either fill out this survey ( or send us an email with any relevant information. (There is also an option to be reassigned your current box for the next semester if you will be returning in the fall)

We only forward 1st Class USPS mail and packages. Other packages (UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc), magazines, non-profit mail and standard mail will not be forwarded. We can only forward to US addresses. The forwarding period is 2 months from when the request is submitted after which any additional mail we receive will be returned to sender.

We ask that you contact the people/business sending you mail and correcting it to your permanent address. Also enrolling in online/electronic billing is both environmentally friendly and will save you time (and sometimes money).

May Sarton Poem – After a Winter’s Silence

submitted by

Seeing all the plants pushing through the earth, the flowers opening, buds on the trees, birds
singing, and the color green painting the leaves everywhere… me hope and delight. I thought of a favorite poem to share with you. BE WELL. Nancy Guilbeault – CWC

After a Winter’s Silence

Along the terrace wall

Snowdrops have pushed through

hard ice, making a pool.

Delicate stems now show

White bells as though

The force, the thrust to flower

Were nothing at all.

Who gives them the power?

After a winter’s silence

I feel the shock of spring.

My breath warms like the sun,

Melts ice, bursts into song,

So when that inner one

Gives life back the power

To rise up and push through,

There’s nothing to it.

We simply have to do it,

As snowdrops know

When snowdrops flower.

by May Sarton

CGEE and the Spanish department invite all students to a virtual “Meet and Greet” with our Spanish language instructors from Mexico. Since we cannot meet in person for class this summer, we are happy to bring the instructors to you virtually! Get to know your instructors in this engaging Zoom session between Cuernavaca and Minneapolis. The meet and greet will be facilitated by Dr. Sarah Degner Riveros. All levels and abilities of Spanish language are encouraged to join! We will have translations from English to Spanish where needed.

Registering for CGEE’s online experiential learning courses this summer will engage students with local communities from our global locations. Learn Spanish language from native speakers, and learn more about Augsburg’s long-time community partners in Cuernavaca!
