The Good Acre’s (TGA) CSA farm share will have a drop-site at Augsburg this coming summer and fall! Purchasing a farm share from TGA is an amazing way for Augsburg students, faculty, and staff to support local farmers and access delicious locally-grown produce (+ add-ons like local eggs and cheese!)
If you are interested in signing up to pick up a weekly farmshare box on campus, go to this website, and then select “Augsburg Campus Cupboard” as the pick-up option.

Congratulations to our Auggie Pride Award winner for the month of March- Karen Mulhausen, staff member in the Fine Arts department. Karen is considered a miracle worker among her coworkers. She works tirelessly behind the scenes (quite literally, in the scene shop!) creating and building sets from scratch. She would be an incredible asset in any professional theater, but then you add the educational element of doing this at Augsburg, training students properly and teaching them new skills — She’s simply a wonder! Our staff senate is excited to recognize her for all of her efforts!! Congratulations Karen!

In the current global climate we need to be extra alert to phishing attacks and scams. President Biden’s recent statement on cybersecurity underscores the need to be alert and aware. https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2022/03/21/statement-by-president-biden-on-our-nations-cybersecurity/
To help with phishing awareness we’ve made a cybersecurity training course available to students in moodle (it will be on the main course dashboard). I invite students to go through this short course and take the quiz at the end.
Everyone who has a login to the Augsburg network has a role to play to keep our digital campus secure. Phishers are not always interested in you or your information. They’re often interested in using your login and email account to phish other people at Augsburg who have access to valuable personal information.

Augsburg University is accepting applications for Auggie Basics Housing for summer 2022 and the 2022-23 academic year.
Monday, April 4, 2022 at 5pm
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Auggie Basics Housing is designed to address the needs of students who are experiencing housing instability. The purpose of the program is to provide a bridge for students whose housing is not stable as they seek to identify a permanent solution.
Students accepted into Auggie Basics Housing will live on campus without cost to the student. Regardless of when students enter the program, the housing commitment will cover the full academic year if needed. If the student secures permanent housing elsewhere, they will be released from the program and the spot will be offered to another student.
Students are not required to have a meal plan if they are selected for Auggie Basics Housing, including those placed into buildings that require one.
ELIGIBILITY FOR PROGRAM:
To be eligible for Auggie Basics Housing, students must be returning students and not receiving other housing aid from the University. Incoming first-year and transfer students are not eligible to apply.
Students may apply for housing either for the summer term and/or for the academic year. Students must reapply each academic year, and may be part of the program for up to two academic years. Being chosen for Auggie Basics Housing one year does not guarantee participation in future years.
APPLICATION LINK: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSda_PwCjMezO63enNBljbudyjmAvAVAQrrCvDALOAxl5aw3og/viewform
Questions may be directed to Michael Grewe, Assistant Dean of Students, at email@example.com.
