Welcome to the Augsburg College Tumblr! Our crack staff are hard at work scouring the Internets and our archives (a big pile of old yearbooks) for the latest and greatest (or at least sorta OKist) photos and videos and random tidbits that are somehow, someway Augsburg related.

Brother Ali, Omar Offendum to explore relationship between hip hop, peace at Nobel Peace Prize Forum
Nationally known hip hop artist Brother Ali and Syrian-American artist Omar Offendum will explore the relationship between hip hop and peace at 8 p.m., March 9, at the 25th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Minneapolis.
The artists will speak about their music, their roles as activists and humanitarians, the social and moral dimensions of their music as a force to unite communities, and whether artists have a special moral responsibility. Each presentation, at Augsburg College’s Kennedy Center, will feature a short music set, followed by a talk that includes audience question and answer.
As finals week for the fall semester approaches, the end is in sight for seniors who are planning to graduate in the spring.
This is a time when many students may be wondering about the future, searching for jobs or internships, creating a career network, finding a mentor, and figuring out how student loan repayment works. The staff in Augsburg’s Strommen Center and the office of Academic Advising want to let seniors know that the winter break is a perfect time to do some planning and to schedule appointments with staff members who can help students plan for the next stage of their lives.
