The end of the fall semester always brings a rush of events designed to help students get ready for or take a break from finals. We’re also blessed (or cursed, depending on our metabolisms) with an abundance of holiday open houses for Augsburg staff, faculty, and students to enjoy homemade goodies and each other’s company.
So this week and next, wear your stretchy pants, get out of your office or your favorite study spot, and get together with other Auggies at one of these special events.
