Be Part of the United Unveiling of Augsburg University in Electronic and Social Media

Updating Department Inside Augsburg Pages, Social Media, and Engage Blogs

The new social media profile photos are designed to fit in Twitter and Facebook, and can be used for other social media, as well. They can be downloaded on the Style Guidelines page.

We’re getting so close to September 1 when we officially will be known as “Augsburg University!”  With that in mind, now is the time to block time on your calendar to update your department’s Inside Augsburg pages, Engage Blogs, and department social media accounts.

To help with the transition of your department’s social media accounts, MarComm staff has developed some branded profile and cover photos designed for use on Facebook and Twitter, but also appropriate for other social media platforms, too.

We’re asking that official academic and staff departments, and chartered student organizations, select from among these profile and cover photos to launch your official social media accounts as Augsburg University. We hope to kick off the new academic year with a unified show of force around our branded images. Doing so will reinforce to our public audiences — prospective students and their families, alumni, corporate and foundation partners, and lawmakers — that we are a cohesive, unified community.

MarComm staff already converted top-tier, official social media accounts held by Augsburg. This work was done in advance of other departments to understand any kinks in the changes and so that if your department needs assistance, we are more readily available to help you.

MarComm staff will be available to design customized profile photos for social media. Details are below.

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.
