An Exclusive Look at the Images in “Hold Fast to What is Good”

Throughout the month of April, we will be featuring images that are core to the history of Augsburg. These images are featured in “Hold Fast to What is Good” by Professor Phillip Adamo – a book to commemorate Augsburg’s Sesquicentennial looking back from 1869 to today.

Athletic charms
Up until 1989, women b-ballers at Augsburg used to get a little “charm” like this one, instead of an athletic “letter” for their jackets. Learn the whole story behind this image in “Hold Fast to What is Good.”

Does a Norwegian sweater work with my hijab? Of course, it does. The story of our unique Augsburg community can be found in “Hold Fast to What is Good.”
1898 Augsburg Chapel altar painting of Jesus.
