submitted by

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is happy to announce we have hired two new admission counselors (one first year and one transfer) to join our team! We ask the campus community to help welcome Ramona Tran as our newest Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions (she joins the first year team along with Josh Owens, Nicole Borwege, and Shonna Fulford).

Ramona comes to us from The College of St. Scholastica where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Behavior (’19) and her MBA in Leadership & Change (’21), and served as the Area Coordinator for Residence Life. Her experience in higher education, her energy, and her passion for working with first generation students will make her an asset to our team and to the larger Augsburg community! Ramona’s first day will be Monday, May 17th.

We also welcome Tim Lawson, the newest Assistant Director of Transfer Admissions (joining Katie Asfeld and Paul Kienberger). Tim is a proud two time Augsburg grad, first with his Bachelor’s in 2009 and then with his MBA in 2015. He lives in Minnetonka with his wife, two daughters, and Bernese Mountain dog. Tim says, “I wanted to take this opportunity to express how excited I am to be joining the team and the Augsburg community. I am looking forward to meeting you and learning from you all.” Tim’s first day will be Tuesday, June 1.
