#AuggieAsks Alumni

Dear Alumni,

With more than 1,500 alumni staying connected with Augsburg via social media and in so many other ways, we would love to hear from you. Every month, we at the Augsburg Alumni Association are going to ask you a question via social media and we would love to hear your feedback. We want to hear your ideas about upcoming events, special programs, favorite memories, volunteering, continuing education, and so much more. In every monthly e-newsletter, we will pose a question for you, the alumni, and we’ll follow it up on Twitter and Facebook. We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas, and we hope you will share your stories with us!

Homecoming planning is already underway here on campus for Sept. 23-24, 2016. The April 2016 #AuggieAsks question is: What would bring to campus for Homecoming? Do you a favorite idea for Homecoming that you’ve never seen or would like to see again? What makes Homecoming great for you?

Have any questions of your own? Tag #AuggieAsks to Augsburg Alumni on Facebook or Twitter, or let us know at alumni@augsburg.edu, and we’ll get back to you right away.

Thank you for your ideas!

— Katie Koch ’01
