We reached out across our social media channels to gather stories about how Augsburg community members show their Auggie pride. Here are some of their photos and responses:

We had karaoke at our wedding (2022) and A.J. Bohler ’12 requested and played the Auggie fight song! Many Auggie alumni were at our wedding, and we had a great time shouting the fight song. It was unexpected and very fun. I love my fellow Auggies! —Elisabeth (Clemans) Habisch ’11 via Facebook

I try to give back what generosity and support I was given during my academic career. I went from being homeless to being one of three air toxic scientists in the state of Minnesota. Anything is possible! —Derek King ’17 via LinkedIn

My Augsburg education prepared me to take on the world at an international level—Italy just happened to be my first stop. As an alumnus, you learn that one never stops being a responsible leader and thoughtful steward, especially when being introduced to new cultures. —Nathan Olson ’23 via email
