Summer 2013 Class Agent Letter

days. Your class agent, Darlene Fick, asked me to share the
following Augustana news with you for the Summer Class Agent Letter.
Please send news and updates to Marilyn for the next edition of the
While things are relatively quiet on Augie's campus during the summer
months, we had a busy weekend in May when we welcomed the Class of 2013
to the ranks of Augustana alumni. 413 new graduates celebrated their
hard work and accomplishments at Commencement, held in the Elmen Center on campus. The event marked the first time since 1949 that Commencement has been held on campus.
Augie's website is a great place to
learn more about the festivities that day. You can watch videos of the
ceremony’s speakers, including Dr. Peter Schotten, professor of
Government and International Affairs and Social Science Division chair,
and Molly Kokesh '13, a German and Government/International Affairs
major, Political Philosophy minor, and Civitas honors student from
Scotland, S.D. There are also dozens of photos of the celebration. Go to
www.augie.edu/commencement to see for yourself!
Each summer, the Alumni Office is busy preparing for our annual homecoming celebration. This year's Viking Days will be like never before! A special highlight of the weekend will be the All-Class Reunion and Viking Varieties
event taking place on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Washington Pavilion.
Reunion classes will be recognized at the event, but ALL alumni are
invited to attend the celebration! This will be a great chance to catch
up with ALL of your Augie friends! This signature event begins at 6 p.m.
In addition to the All-Class Reunion Event, we are also celebrating the
60th anniversary of Viking Varieties by holding one performance at 8
p.m. in the Mary Sommervold Great Hall at the Washington Pavilion. Even
though this is not a milestone reunion year for your class, I hope you
will join us for this event that is sure to be amazing and fun!
