Beyond Augsburg

submitted by tinsleym@augsburg.edu

Hi everyone,

EAC is proud to announce that we will be launching Beyond Augsburg!

Need an eco-friendly way to get to the Grocery Store? Learn to use public transit as a group. Join us this weekend Saturday, April 16th from 10:30-3:30pm. We intend to meet at Oren Gateway before we go to East Village!

We will also leave together at 3:00 pm and arrive back on campus around 3:30. Bring your own bags! If you’d prefer, you can also leave earlier on your own with your new bussing knowledge handy.

The purpose of this event is to teach the Augsburg community how to use the public transit as well as solve the transportation issue that a lot of Augsburg residents have. We can make an environmental impact as a group. Let’s find out how to use our Auggie Passes.

Thank you in advance for joining us! ☺️

The Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program – April 12

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

The Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program welcomes Dr. Jennifer L. Ross, Professor and Physics Department Chair at Syracuse University, who will present The Future is Alive! Physics Lessons from Biology as part of the ongoing Sverdrup lecture series.

Tuesday, April 12, 11:00 – 12:00pm
Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center

Imagine a world where potholes in roads seal themselves like cuts in your skin, your body reports directly to your doctor on pain and medication, and we can explore and inhabit other planets using pre-fabricated houses that build themselves. To reach these dreams, we must understand the physics behind biology that can already perform such exciting activities. In this talk, we will explore how the skeleton of the cell is able to arrange itself and how enzymes could move faster than expected when they perform their chemical reaction.

Please note the convocation schedule for adjusted class times on this day and in compliance with Augsburg University COVID-19 protocols, please pre-register at the Google Doc link posted below.

The Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program – April 12

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

The Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program welcomes Dr. Jennifer L. Ross, Professor and Physics Department Chair at Syracuse University, who will present The Future is Alive! Physics Lessons from Biology as part of the ongoing Sverdrup lecture series.

Tuesday, April 12, 11:00 – 12:00pm
Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center

Imagine a world where potholes in roads seal themselves like cuts in your skin, your body reports directly to your doctor on pain and medication, and we can explore and inhabit other planets using pre-fabricated houses that build themselves. To reach these dreams, we must understand the physics behind biology that can already perform such exciting activities. In this talk, we will explore how the skeleton of the cell is able to arrange itself and how enzymes could move faster than expected when they perform their chemical reaction.

Please note the convocation schedule for adjusted class times on this day. Also, please fill out the attendance registration form below in compliance with Augsburg University COVID-19 protocols.
