Andrea Sanow Farewell Open House

Andrea Sanow, administrative assistant for URGO/LSAMP, will be leaving Augsburg for a position in San Francisco with the Lutheran Volunteer Corp. To learn more about what Andrea will be doing visit her Tumblr:

Her last day at Augsburg will be July 27.

Please stop by the URGO/LSAMP/McNair office suite (Science 152) for cake and well wishes on Thursday, July 26, from 2-4 p.m.

If you have had the pleasure of working with Andrea, you know that her work and her presence will be missed by many faculty, staff, students, and departments, even outside of those she officially serves.

We wish her the best in her future endeavors and can only hope that her professional path leads her back to Augsburg one day.
