Winter Break and Spring Parking Permits

submitted by

Hello Auggies,

DPS hopes everyone is having a stress free and successful finals week. We just wanted to announce the parking plans for both winter break and spring semester. If you have already bought a full year permit, you can disregard this message as it doesn’t apply to you.

WINTER BREAK: On December 16, all fall semester passes will expire. If you plan on staying over winter break, you can purchase a winter break permit for $50 through the Inside Augsburg Parking Services tab on December 16. Even first-year resident students will be able to purchase this permit for winter break. The pass will expire on January 15, 2024.

SPRING SEMESTER: Next week Monday (December 18), passes for the Spring 2024 semester will go on sale. Those can be purchased through the Augsburg Parking Services tab. Please note: this will be the first semester that we will no longer be using physical hang tags.

UNDERGROUND PASSES: If you previously purchased a Fall Underground pass, expect an email from DPS asking if you’d like to re-up for Spring Semester. If you were put on the waiting list, you’ll also be receiving an email about how to purchase an underground pass. If we have any additional passes left over in either underground garages, we will announce via email.

The entire DPS team wants to thank everyone for their cooperation and feedback with our new virtual permit system. As always, please make sure that you accurately register your vehicle(s). Even if you’re off by one number or letter, you can be ticketed by the cameras. Additionally, we’d like to remind everyone that if you drive more than one vehicle or get a new license plate, you MUST register these vehicles to your parking account. The LPRs (License Plate Reader cameras) won’t recognize another vehicle you drive if you haven’t registered it, regardless of whether you bought a permit or not.

Any questions, please feel free to email

My name is Dean Harris, and I am a doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology Department at Augsburg University. I am conducting this study as partial fulfillment of my doctoral degree, with Dr. Patricia Hopkins-Smith as my advisor.

You are being invited to participate in a research study on investigating influences of intrapersonal factors on the relationship between casual sex and mental health. Our study focuses on experiences of casual sex in individuals who identify as single or recently single (i.e., have not been in a relationship longer than one month). As such, if you indicated you were in a relationship for longer than one month, you do not meet our study eligibility criteria. We respect and appreciate individuals in various types of relationships, including open or ethically non-monogamous ones, but our current study’s scope is limited to investigating casual sex in those who identify as single (or recently single). If you agree to this study, I will ask you to complete a survey via Qualtrics. This survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. After completing all the survey questions, you will be invited, if you wish, to provide contact information to enter in the raffle to win one of three $50 gift card prizes, and/or emailed the results at the end of the study’s conclusion.

If you have any questions now or later, you may contact me, Dean Harris at 612-239-2534 or You can also contact my advisor, Dr. Patricia Hopkins-Smith at 612-330-1567 or If you contact me or my advisor, understand that your anonymity cannot be guaranteed; however, if you decide to participate, your data will not be connected to your name.

Online Survey—Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by

Hello Auggies! I am a graduate student seeking participants for a research study. I am exploring how one’s ability to recognize and regulate their own and others’ emotions may relate to feelings of depression and social disconnect. Participation in this study will involve completing a series of behavioral health inventories and a demographic screener that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. These inventories will ask if you have experienced symptoms of depression or loneliness and ask how intensely you experience your everyday emotions. Following completion of these inventories, participants will complete a test online that will walk participants through a variety of different tasks, such as recognition of facial expressions and implied social meanings. This test will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. All participation in this study is done online from the comfort of your own home. Students are invited to participate in this study if you: (1) are between the ages of 18 and 31; (2) have not been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, or a personality disorder; (3) have not experienced an interpersonally traumatic life event (i.e., assault by another human being); and (4) are not currently experiencing a major health concern (i.e., life threatening illness/injury or significant transplant/removal surgery).

For your time, participants will be entered into a random lottery drawing for one of three $100 Amazon gift cards!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation in this study, please contact me at If you would like to participate in this study, please click the link below. You will be taken to a secure, online survey where you will be presented with a consent form followed by the demographic screener and brief inventories. Upon completion of these, you will be shown the link to the final assessment.
Thank you!
