Griffin House President

Andrew is a third-year studying Computer Science and Mathematics. He fell in love with the Honors Program at Augsburg after being told that he looked just like then-director Bob Groven on his first visit to the school and hasn’t looked back since. When he’s not doing something for Honors, Andrew can also be found attending various other student groups including QPA, the Augsburg ACM chapter, and Murphy Square – not to mention his prolific writing for The Echo. In his free time, Andrew enjoys watching movies (especially animation!), running or biking through Minneapolis, and exploring the wilds of the internet late at night.

Blair StewigBlair Stewig

Crockett House President

I am a biology major, with minors in environmental studies, religion, and chemistry. Originally from Maple Lake Minnesota. I am on the cross country and track teams at Augsburg and write for the Augsburg ECHO. When I am not running around, in lab, or tutoring; I enjoy knitting and cooking without recipes. I really love that Augsburg has allowed me to pursue my wide variety of interests while on campus. Exploring my many curiosities has allowed me to learn more about myself, and about the world around me. I am excited to get to know the Honors Council Faculty, and to serve as a connecting link between the students of the Crockett house and the Honors Council.
