Welcome Back Auggies!

welcome Soon the serene days of summer will come to an end and Augsburg will once again buzz with activity as new and not-so-new students return to campus. See the Daily A-Mail and the Inside Augsburg calendar for more details and contact information for these and many other welcome-back events.

Highlights of welcome week include Auggie Days, a full schedule of events designed to help new Day students learn about life in the city and how to make the best of their time at Augsburg. Students will take trips to Target, the State Fair, and area museums. The will also learn note-taking strategies and how to manage their time and money. Auggie Days is sponsored by the staff and students of Campus Activities and Orientation.

For the second year, Augsburg will hold two opening convocation ceremonies. The first will be held Tuesday, September 2 and will provide the official welcome for new first-year, transfer, and international program students. The September 6 ceremony, held between the Saturday morning and afternoon class sessions, will welcome adult undergraduate and graduate program students to campus.
