When we began making this magazine in early 2020, the world was markedly different than the one we inhabit today. Augsburg Now staff delayed the magazine’s timeline due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the university’s operations. Most of the stories and events described herein occurred before it became necessary to shift to many working from home, online gatherings, and other modified operations to slow the spread of the virus.
Because we wanted to share these remarkable stories and Auggie accomplishments as soon as possible, our team decided to release this Spring–Summer 2020 issue in digital-only format, a first in the magazine’s history. You can also download the full magazine PDF.
