The Augsburg campus is bustling with excitement for Homecoming 2007 — and for good reason. This year’s Homecoming will be chock full of Auggie school spirit and fun activities.
The week will kick off on Monday, Oct. 8 with a student/faculty ultimate Frisbee game and, later, a coronation/pep rally complete with a fireworks display. Other events taking place throughout the week include the ASAC Variety Show, the infamous Powder Puff football game, campus-wide laser tag, an Auggie block party, and the Homecoming dance.
Third-year student Amanda Chaffin says, “I’m so excited to play in the Powder Puff football game. I think Homecoming is a great opportunity for the first years to meet alumni and mingle with older students so they can see what Auggie spirit is all about.”
