Augsburg Total Wellness: School Supply Drive
Happy Back to School Time, Auggies! Are you excited? I know I am, and I know that there a lot of little kiddos out there excited (and maybe a little nervous) for their first day back at school too.
To kick off the academic year, Augsburg Total Wellness is sponsoring a School Supply Drive to feel good, by doing good. All donations will be delivered to People Serving People. This non-profit organization is located in Minneapolis. As the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused homeless shelter in Minnesota, your donations will have a huge impact. Learn more about People Serving People here.
Thousands of students across the country are heading back to school in just a few short weeks. Let's help make sure each and every one has the supplies they need to be successful! From August 22 to September 2, donations will be accepted in Human Resources, Memorial Hall, Room 19.
The supplies needed include (new items only):
Help Needed for State Fair Booth on Sept. 4
Every year Augsburg has a booth in the Education Building at the Great Minnesota Get Together. This is a great opportunity to meet with hundreds of prospective students, alumni and current students who stop by to spin the wheel and say hello. We are still seeking coverage from 5-9 p.m. on Sunday, September 4. Admittance into the fair is provided. Contact Katie Radford at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Theater Department: Auditions for Fall Productions
Interested in an exciting new take on an old play? Want to create a piece of theater entirely from scratch? Eager to collaborate in an ensemble with your peers?
Come out and audition for our two upcoming productions, Cymbeline and Silence is Health. We're looking for actors, musicians, writers, you name it, we want it. All Augsburg students are welcome to audition! Join us!
All audition information and details, as well as audition sign-up sheets, are posted on the Tjornhom-Nelson Theater door in the Atrium of the Foss Center.
But don't delay .this opportunity is only available for a few more weeks.
Taste of Augsburg Booth Registration
Are you a student group, athletic team or campus department wanting to take part in community fun and Homecoming festivities on Sept. 24? Register for your booth at Taste of Augsburg where you can raise money and awareness of what you do while interacting with alumni, students, and friends of the College! As a "vendor" groups are encouraged to sell a product (food items, pompoms, etc) or a service (carnival game, face painting, etc). Groups are responsible for the cost of the product and/or service, but any profit that is made above the initial investment is yours to keep. If your group doesn't want to "sell" anything, but wants to participate that's OK too!
Visit www.augsburg.edu/homecoming/students to register for a booth or get more information. Please send completed forms to Katie Radford in Alumni Relations (email@example.com) by Friday, September 16, 2016.
Also, student groups and athletic teams, the application for seed money is due this Friday, Sept. 2. The link can be found on the attachment for more information on the website above.
