Zyzzogeton 2010 Schedule

APRIL 13, 2010

Picture of Z 2010 Augsburg celebrates the creativity and scholarship of undergraduate students with its 5th-annual Zyzzogeton festival. The festival falls at the end of each academic year and is a culmination of achievement featuring work across divisions and departments. A "zyzzogeton" is a green leaf-hopper as well as the last word in the Webster Collegiate Dictionary, which is a fitting symbol to mark the end of the academic year.
