Last October, a group of Augsburg alumni gathered in Arlington, Virginia, for a dinner and reception hosted by Jeff Peterson ’63. At the end of the gathering, Jessica Spanswick ’10 suggested the group should spend more time together.

Spanswick coordinated the group’s next gathering for a social hour and trivia in Washington, D.C., the following month. That’s how the informal DMV-area (the district, Maryland, and Virginia) Augsburg alumni group was born. With help from Augsburg’s Institutional Advancement team, they were able to invite even more Auggies in the area to attend social hours, networking events, and dinners.

In February, Augsburg staff met with the group to discuss how to increase alumni involvement across the country and support the university through Give to the Max Day 2020.
