Thank you to everyone who helped us kick-off Augsburg’s Sesquicentennial at the Gala on Friday, September 27! The evening was filled with uniquely-Augsburg moments and our guests made a lasting impact as we raised $1.4 million in support of our mission.

Along with the guest speakers and beautiful performances by the Bob Stacke All-Star Band, The Augsburg Choir and The Sesquicentennial Singers, three videos were shown during the evening that tell the Augsburg story from our origins, to who we are today, to the impact we make for students. Please feel free to watch and share them with friends and family!

Origins

What are Augsburg’s origins? Our history has so many layers to it. As we continue to grow in our 150th year, we want to look back and honor everything that has brought us to this point.

We Are Auggies

“We Are Auggies,” written and performed by Donte Collins ’18, is a true embodiment of what it means to be an Auggie.

Inspiring Future Leaders

Meet Chung Lip ’18, Lyle Nyberg ’18, and Blair Stewig ’18, future leaders in public health and the sciences. Their stories were shared at our Sesquicentennial Gala right before we went on to raise $1.4 million during our giving opportunity portion of the evening. Thank you to everyone who helped to invest in our students and in Augsburg last night!
