University Name Change: Mortensen Hall ‘Augsburg University’ Sign

The original signs on top of Mortensen Hall, and that said “Augsburg College” and “Augsburg,” were removed during the week of July 17.

Now that the letters are removed, the sign facing will be patched and repainted maroon. This is anticipated to take place July 27 and 28.

Following patching and painting, the new signs — “Augsburg University” and the Cross A — will be installed using a crane. This work currently is scheduled for July 30 and 31. Renderings of the new signs that will be installed can be seen in the Update titled “University Name Change: Monument Signs, Top of Mortenson.”

Please note that all schedules are weather- and equipment-dependent and things could be pushed out a bit.
