We welcomed them when they arrived, let’s support students as they move out, easing their transition from finals to summer break! From Wednesday 4/20 – MoveOut Day Friday 4/29, staff and faculty volunteers are needed to help students move out of their residence halls and sort donations going to the ShareShop and Sisterhood Boutique.
Residence Life and the ShareShop team are partnering to lead MoveOut with goals of easing students’ stress of moving, collecting donations so future students can make use of them, and diverting “waste” away from the Minneapolis incinerator. It’s a win-win-win! We just need your help! Sign-up by following the link below. Email questions to Monica McDaniel, Sustainability Officer at email@example.com.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to direct films or edit them, we have some new classes in the Fall you might like.
FLM 295: Topics: Editing 2 cr.
Learn how to edit with Adobe Premiere Pro! This is a 2 credit course open to anyone!
FLM 495: Topics: Directing for Cinematic Storytelling
Taught by Raven Johnson, a filmmaker-in-residence, you will learn how to direct films! From shots to scenes to everything in between! If you have at all thought about making a movie, this class is for you. It’s helpful to have taken Film 180 or another film class, but it isn’t required. From camera-placement and movement to shaping an actor’s performance and communicating cinematic mood and tone, you will work to develop your own directing skills as you learn the elements, techniques, and methods for working with actors and film crews.
FLM 495: Topics: Movies That Matter
Uncle Ben told Spiderman that “with great power comes great responsibility”. Moving pictures have the power to influence politics, change industry, impact culture, spur social movements, change laws, and write history. In this course, you will watch films, assess their meaning and impact, and engage in topical discussions around cinematic techniques, cultural values, and film theories. Note: The focus of each Movies That Matters course will be centered on the interests and expertise of the professor. Examples include: women directors, BIPOC film, animation, sci-fi, and yes, super-heroes. This particular course will focus on women directors.

As we near the end of another year please don’t forget to take care of your campus mailbox. This includes checking it for any mail, returning your lock and filing out the survey for what you would like us to do with your mail after this semester.
Two weeks after the spring semester ends (May 16, 2022) we will be closing all student campus boxes. Then before the fall semester starts we will reassign them (possible new numbers) to all students living on campus. Commuter students can then request to have a campus box if they would like 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 (https://forms.gle/872EQGhwK1tCWiPB6) or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any relevant information. There is also an option to be reassigned your current campus box number for the next semester if you will be returning in the fall.
We are only able to 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 also only forward to USA addresses. The forwarding period for the Augsburg Mailroom is two months from when the request is submitted. Afterward any additional mail we receive will be returned to sender.
We request that you contact the people/business sending you mail and update your address with them. Enrolling in online/electronic bills or statements can also be a smart option. It is environmentally friendly, secure and will often save you time (and sometimes money). Asking us to forward your mail does not change your mailing address with the post office or the University, just the Mailroom.
