For more than ten years, Augsburg has hosted a booth at the Minnesota State Fair. The fair runs Thursday, August 23 through Labor Day, September 3.
The theme of Augsburg’s booth this year is “”Auggies are Everywhere: Taking Auggies Worldwide Since 1869″ with an emphasis on our global programs. The give-away will be luggage tags, and alumni stopping by the booth can “send” a postcard to a favorite on-campus professor or staff member telling them where they’ve been.
“The fair is a great way for us to connect with our alumni and our new students coming in and to make the community more aware of our programs,” says Julie Olson, vice president of enrollment management.
Michele Kidwell, enrollment assistant and coordinator of Augsburg’s fair booth, adds, “Our volunteers are the best because they’re so excited to be a part of the fair.”
The booth can be found in the Education Building, located on Cosgrove Street on the east side of the fairgrounds.
