Homecoming is a chance for you to connect with other Auggies, to share memories of the past, and to create new ones. Did you play basketball? Get your former teammates together and come to the Hall of Fame banquet. Did you love your first-year chemistry class? Then you might want to hear Dr. Gyberg speak at Auggie Connections. Did you sing in the choir? Come hear our fabulous Gospel Praise ensemble! Whatever your Augsburg experience, we invite you to come back to campus, see what’s new, and share your story with us.
This year, connect with Auggies past and current at the first annual “Auggie Connections” event on Friday evening. And don’t forget to show your Auggie pride at the football game against the Oles. Some highlights of the week include:
