More than 1,300 donors gave Augsburg College more than $430,000 on Give to the Max Day 2014. For the second year in a row, Augsburg surpassed every other Minnesota college or university in this annual online fundraising event. The achievement reflects the work of alumni, faculty, and staff who championed nearly three dozen unique projects.
In the classroom
- $1,605 was raised to help students purchase essential—but sometimes pricey—textbooks for class.
- The College launched its first student-run publishing organization, Howling Bird, which is part of the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program.
- The Communication Studies Department purchased a drone camera that takes student filmmakers’ work to new heights.
- Biology students will benefit from the opportunity to fund additional DNA sequencing critical to their research.
- Faculty in the Department of History will further their research on topics ranging from the deathbed conversions of medieval knights to Minnesota after the Civil War to women’s medicine in the Victorian era.
Auggies on the move
- The Augsburg College women’s hockey team traveled to four European countries, playing games against international opponents, and touring historic and cultural sites.
