Instead of receiving a separate email every time a student posts, you can elect to receive one daily (email) digest of all forum postings. See the link below for more info.

Campus Box Closing/Forwarding (Last Notice)

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).

Faculty and Staff, Share a Celebratory Video for the Class of 2020

submitted by

Faculty and staff,

We’d like to encourage you or your department to record and share a video congratulating the Class of 2020 for finishing the academic year strong and to celebrate their accomplishments. You could screen record yourselves on Zoom. Post to your department’s social media account (or to your personal account) and use the hashtag #GoAuggies and tag Augsburg so we see them and share these via Augsburg’s social media channels and feature them on Inside Augsburg as we approach commencement day.

There isn’t a specific deadline, just as long as it’s before commencement day.

They can be group videos like this example from the chemistry department:

or individual videos like this one from one of our regents:

Videos must be captioned for accessibility purposes.

2020 Graduates – Virtual Commencement Traditions

submitted by

Commencement Traditions:

1. Decorate your mortarboard cap: Show how you’ve decorated your graduation cap in your video. Share it on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtag #AuggieGrad.

2. Turn your tassel: One of the most important moments of a commencement ceremony is when graduates move the tassel on their caps from the right side to the left side to signify their move from candidate to graduate. Record a video of yourself (or have someone in your home record you) turning your tassel, then share it with #AuggieGrad on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

3. Stay connected: No matter how near or far we are from one another, we’re still a community of Auggies. Celebrate your new alumni status in the Augsburg community by sharing a post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the hashtag #AuggiePride.
