Who are we?

Connected in passion and purpose, we are a group of graduates of the last decade (2014-2024) who work to keep fellow young alumni connected to Augustana and each other. We meet quarterly to plan events and advocate for the needs and concerns of young alumni. From computer science to music education, we come from an array of backgrounds, majors and graduation years and are fueled by our love of Augustana.

Members sit on three committees that meet monthly:

  • Engagement and Recruitment: This committee develops a community of young alumni by recruiting members and promoting active participation on the GOLD Council.
  • Marketing and Social Events: This committee organizes and plans engaging events for the young alumni group. Some events include Young Alumni Weekend, Virtual Trivia and Homecoming Bingo. Marketing and Social Events also runs our GOLD Instagram page
  • Professional Development: This committee fosters personal and professional growth by organizing networking events and building relationships between alumni and current students. Professional Development also hosts the After Augie podcast featuring a slough (wink, wink) of alumni guest stars.
