Host Dinner for International Students

submitted by

A new semester is just around the corner, and luckily, we are expecting NEW international students to join us this Fall Semester 2023 — representing countries like Ethiopia, Belgium, Italy, Nigeria, Spain, South Korea, Greece and Norway to name a few!

Currently we are expecting to receive between 20 – 26 new international students, both degree seekers and mobility semester students.

As we collaboratively welcome this group, we plan for different experiences including a dinner potentially hosted by you—our faculty and staff members—in your home. These events create a space for our new students to connect directly with members of our community, AND the dinner provides an opportunity for you to learn about the incoming international students and their goals at Augsburg. It’s really a win-win situation!

Here are the details:
Date: Tuesday, August 22, 2023
Time: Pick up at 5 p.m. with a return to campus around 7 p.m. — Pick up at Einstein’s!

YES – Sign me up!

One Bedroom Apartment for Rent in St. Anthony Park $890/month

Looking for a cool place to live? This apartment is in a turn of the century house that was made into a 4-plex in the 1930s. It’s a quiet building with hardwood floors, great southern exposure, and a nice backyard patio. Near the intersection of Como and Raymond in Saint Paul, it is less than a ten minute drive to Cedar-Riverside and less than a block from the #3 bus line. The neighborhood is super cute and bougie and there is a nice park across the street.

If you’d like to know more about the place, check out the Craig’s List ad below or get in touch with Jenean Gilmer at
