Calling All Cocktail and Mocktail Lovers – DIY Cocktail Kits for Sale

submitted by benasut@augsburg.edu

Hello! I’m Marisa Benasutti, the Campus Kitchen gal on campus! I also co-own and co-manage a small organic veggie farm. We sell “Cocktail Shares” which is a box of drinks that we make with fresh herbs, flowers and produce from the farm. Each box contains 3 drinks that each make 2 cocktails/mocktails. We still have a few shares available for the season!

Sign up here: https://www.moshkyfarm.com/csa/p/cocktail-share-2022-mkp5m-ngbhy 

Here’s some more details: At Moshky Farm, we think plants should be experienced in all possible ways using all our senses. While CSA boxes are focused on food and cooking, we also love to experience the farm in a glass. Cocktail shares will be offered once per month June-Oct for a total of 5 boxes. Each box contains 3 cocktail (or mocktail) bases which each make 2 cocktails. Each box will include everything you need except the booze. You’ll receive recipes, mixology tips, and other tidbits for each drink.

Mother nature is ultimately the boss of the final calendar. Boxes are expected to begin the end of June and we will follow-up with a calendar of monthly pick-up dates closer to June.

*BYOB- everything you need is included except the booze.

Here’s an idea of what might go in each box:

+ Cocktail bases (just add booze! Or add another included mixer for a mocktail)

+ Fresh herb for muddling & garnishes

+ Dehydrated fruit/vegetable garnish

+ finishers such as tonic, soda water, lemon

+ Moshky grown herbal tea blend

Your first box will include beautiful glassware and a tea infuser.

Online Survey – Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by fleigr@augsburg.edu

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 fleigr@augsburg.edu. 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.

Summer 2024 Dining Updates (Where Can I Have Lunch This Summer?)

submitted by farrisr@augsburg.edu

Construction is underway this summer to remodel the Dining Commons. The Commons will be closed until mid-August for the project.

Updates include remodeling the serving area to create more space for food service, construction of a designated station where pork is served, new furniture, changes to the beverage service area, and new flooring, ceiling, and window shades.

During the summer, camps and conferences will use the main level of Christensen Center for food service and dining. Outdoor seating will also be available, as weather permits. Regular food service will not be available for faculty and staff; Dining Services will only accommodate camps and pre-arranged groups. Einstein’s will continue regular summer hours between 7:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. We encourage faculty and staff to explore and support neighborhood restaurants this summer.

Online Survey – Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by fleigr@augsburg.edu

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!

Last Chance to Volunteer – Sign Up to Judge Financial Literacy Leadership Debates

submitted by froehlic@augsburg.edu

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, provides academic competitive debate for middle and high school students in the Twin Cities. We tailor the debate model to meet the needs of a variety of students. One of our special programs, which is tailored specifically for girls and gender expansive youth, is Financial Literacy Leadership Debates.

Financial Literacy Leadership Debate is an innovative after-school program that supports students’ public speaking and critical thinking skills while also building financial literacy knowledge. Our program works to close the gender gap in the financial sector by building the leadership and financial knowledge of high school participants through debate. Over the course of the initiative, students meet with their coaches after school, learn about the topic area and fundamental economic concepts through an engaging curriculum, hold practice debates, and prepare for in-person tournaments.

We’re seeking women and gender expansive individuals who study or work in finance related fields to serve as debate judges. No experience is needed- we’ll train you! By being a judge, you’ll have a chance to connect with students and share about your own experiences in this field.

We have one tournament left this season on May 29th (held at Augsburg University). Tournaments are held from 3:15-7:15 PM.

Please let our Volunteer Coordinator Johan know if you have any transportation needs! Reach out to him at: fullard1@augsburg.edu.
